Question about Computers & Internet

CD/DVD PLAYER: won't recognize a new disk at all.

I can't save data, transfer music, or do anything witht his disk...it's very selective of what it will recognize...is there any way to know exactly what disks to buy for this machine to actually let me do copying for data files backing up, storing, etc?

Every forum seems to have at least one with acondescending answer...please don't do be that guy, ok?
I'm just an average guy looking for a solution to a rather complex issue which Win Xp does not address in depth, or provide any solutions for, at least that i have found. thank you all.

    Ravel Lively says the writer is probably going kaput, which may be true, as i don't know the condition of this pc by the previuos owner. However this problem has occured on more than one machines for me.-on e of them is not 'old' at all, To aries: I looked for hours...couldnt find any suggestions for this model- that's wy I asked here. To bootz84: that won't work becau I was never given a disk- prev. owner said he used sofware from a disk he cant find now. thanks that might have helped. I am currently atempting saravanan kp's solution. I have brand new Sony DVD+RWs which currently dont work-so i just downloaded the free Nero Lite-and will let you know the results here in a day or two...thanks all!!

Hi

Is your cd/dvd rom a rw or just a reader, i would check up on the make and model of your burner and read what media it is compatible with to save you any headaches and hassles.


That way it will identify the media you need to buy to let you copy your data.


cheers

SOURCE: HP Pavilion a220n cd-rw won't burn

Have you tried this firmware update from HP yet. This particular update from June 2004 indicates that it primarily addresses an audio performance issue, but rarely do any firmware updates also not address media recognition that would help the CD/DVD writer both read and write to specific blank media.
It is highly unlikely but not impossible that a virii infection would cause you inability to write to media, much more likey that the CDwriter is trying to give up the ghost. Before assuming to much tho, get some canned compressed air and blow into the cdwriter with tray open. This may more a simply issue of some foreign material sitting on the lens of the laser that allows you write to media. Be aware while this may be the latest firmware from HP on this particular CDwriter, that does not mean that there are not other later firmware updates from other souces. HP and all the OEM companies have a bad habit of taking their time about issuing updates and rarely if ever follow a product to completion of its update cycle. In other words remember this is a Sony product, not a HP product even tho it is in a HP computer.
If more information is needed come back to us and don't forget to rate us, as that is the only compensation we are getting for these long drawn out explanations and research on your product or problem.

SOURCE: I want to restore my Acer Aspire M1100 desktop

You'll have to use your recovery disk to set it back to factory, unfortunately most recovery disks give you little or no options for which software is to be reinstalled. The only way to install windows without any of the extra software that your computer came with would be to take a standard windows installation disk and install through that. Afterwards you would have to manually install all the driver software.

Alternatively, you can install with your recovery disk and use the add/remove software feature in the control panel to remove any programs that you do not want, just be sure that you don't remove any software that is a driver for any hardware devices.

Hope this helps, get back to me if you need any more information.

I'm trying to burn a music CD on my new HP computer and can't get the source disk to download to my hard drive. I'm an old dude and did print out the HP instruction sheet-still confused.


Hello rhughes612,

You may try burn by CD to CD burn but if you want to select files that you want to burn, you have to ripped the music from the Music CD by using Window Media Player 10 or higher. Or try using software that ripped music from CD.

This is the instruction of CD to CD:

1. Insert the source disk
2. Then hit burn or copy to CD on your HP CD & DVD burner software or application.
Then it will be temporarily copied to the hard drive.
3. after it finishes copying the source disk, you will be ask to insert a blank CD then hit continue or OK

Please reply or respond if this doesn't work so that I could provide you another solution and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

I own eMachine Notebook e525 and it won't read any disks. I have tried multiple disks such as music cds, installation cds and video dvds. None of them read or open. There isn't even an icon for the...


> there is no icon for the CD-drive

Probably means that either:
* no electrical power is reaching the CD-ROM drive
* no "data" is being transferred to/from the drive
* the electronics inside the CD-ROM drive have "died"

Check the "power" and "data" connectors.

If necessary, replace the drive with a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

How do you get music to save on a new 4gb memory card on a nokia E5 instead of saving in phone memory


Transfer music from a computer
You can use the following methods to transfer music:

• To install Nokia Ovi Player to manage and organize your music files, download
the PC software from www.ovi.com, and follow the instructions.

• To view your device on a computer as a mass memory device where you can
transfer any data files, make the connection with a compatible USB data cable
or Bluetooth connectivity. If you are using a USB data cable, select Mass
storage as the USB connection mode. A compatible memory card must be
inserted in the device.

• To synchronize music with Windows Media Player, connect a compatible USB
data cable, and select PC Suite as the USB connection mode. A compatible
memory card must be inserted in the device.

To change the default USB connection mode, select Menu > Ctrl. panel >
Connectivity > USB and USB connection mode.


I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

I want to save my picture files on the cd or dvd tape but i cant transfer it.


You need a burning software to burn your picture files, music, or video.
You can use NERO Burning ROM. Download it from HERE. You can use the "Data Burning" Feature in it to transfer your files into CD or DVD.

cd-r80 are for music. Your best option is to buy a program like nero. I assume you are just dragging and dropping files to burn them right now. dvd's are more meant for backing up data or making movies because they hold a lot more data then a cd. Are you able to burn disc's at all? Just like all things involved with computers it can get complicated real quick.I hope this helps a little and if you have more questions let me know
Thanks,

ive got the new version of the sony sonic stage downloaded onto my laptop,and when i plug my player into my laptop via usb cable,the player itself is recognized straight away as a harddrive/removable disk etc,and you have to transfrer music onto the player as from sonic stage music library,and you also have to creatate you own music library via sonic stage,and u can also transfer music from your own music library wich you use via windows media player,and also u can transfer a cd into you sony sonic stage music libraty,and this is similar to when your using the windows media player as to rip a cd or transfer music onto an mp3 player,as i use all diffrent types of mp3 players myself,and i find the archos gmini sx 202 player to be pretty awesome player,as ive got to of them as well,and i use windows media player as to transfer music files onto them,and i cannot transfer any music files onto the sony ones via windown media player as those music file wont show up on the player at all,and ive tried this myself,and it will only work via sony sonic stage.
