Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Windows Media Center.
If Media Center is not in full-screen mode, click the Maximize button in the upper-right corner of the window.
Insert an audio CD into the CD-ROM drive on your computer. The CD will start playing automatically.
On the Now Playing screen, click Rip CD. (If you navigated away from the Now Playing screen, you can always return there from the Windows Media Center start screen by scrolling to Music, clicking Music library, clicking Albums, and then clicking the CD you inserted.)
If this is the first time you've ripped a CD, follow the instructions on the CD Ripping Options screen. (You won't see this screen the next time you rip a CD.)
In the Rip CD dialog box, click Yes to rip the tracks to your computer. The ripped music files are automatically added to your Music library.
Re the webcam problem, would need more info. Do you know if the laptop has webcam software installed at all?
Hello, to Rip a CD to your computer means to convert the audio on the CD into a format that your computer can play, such as mp3 or wma. Windows media player can rip CDs to both formats and stores them in your music folder. Just insert your CD and the option to rip should pop up.
To Burn a CD means the reverse, to transfer music files from your computer to a CD. Media player does this a well, just click the Burn tab to begin.
Thanks for asking, and using FixYa
Not every CD or DVD player is able to correctly ready every single brand of writable media. The situation you described is quite common, and the only solution is to use another brand of media. Some people recommend burning at a slower speed, but I don't think this helps at all.
This situation might be caused by incompatibility between the laser on your player and the formulation of the writable surface. You should test other brands and find one that works with all your devices. When you find it, stick with it.
Troubleshooting simply means, investigating a problem to find out the cause and to fix the problem. We can also say; the process of finding and fixing a problem is called troubleshooting.
Example like when your computer has sound problem, we have to find out what is the cause, suppose if it's drivers related problem, after installing or updating the sound drivers will fix the problem so here, installing and updating the sound driver is the Fix.
If you cd/dvd player isn't playing your Cds/Dvds, you have to check the media (cd and dvds), after that, you'll also clean the cd or dvds. And if your cd/dvd problem is caused by the Lens not the others like cds or motor, etc.., then replacing the lens will fix the problem and there'll be no more problem with your cd/dvd player. I'll read and play all cds/dvds after the lens is replaced.

First thing Do you have the Roxio CD that which you could have recived along with the laptop?
If yes Great.. go to start>control Panel> Add/Remove Programs> uninstall everything which ever says sonic or roxio in the list you might have upto 5 to 6 or 7 in the list.. uninstall all of them one by one.. then restart the computer and install the CD completely the problem will solve..
If you dont have the CD..if you are in US call 8006249896 thats dell tech support number and tell them that you didnt recive a single cd along with the computer they will send you all the cds including you operating system..ask them to send the roxio cd also..
If you dont want to go through all of this just go www.filehippo.com and download the latest version of K-Lite Codec Pack under audio and video section in the main page..install it and then try to play the DVD using the same player or different player like media player or media player calssic which is very good..
You can access the Media player classic from start > all programs> K-lite Codec Pack> Media Player Classic open it and press Ctrl+D it will play your DVD
hi try first to insert a clean up CD, and test your Cd player with an original CD, if the problem persist , your laser sense is defficient you have to go to fix it to a specialist.
hope this helps you
Do you have the PXE error? The media failure is in the boot sequence, on the toshiba press F12 on boot to change boot priority, select cd/dvd or hard drive, or to preclude from happening, press F2 on boot enter BIOS, select Boot options make sure to set priority as cd/dvd, then hard drive, then network or disable network boot. network booting causes media failure.
