You must first copy the contents of the CD-ROM that you want to copy to the CD-ROM staging area, and then record a new CD-ROM using this data.



1. If you have a standard CDROM drive as well as a CD-R drive, drag the contents of the host CD-ROM to the CD-R drive icon. If you have only a CD-R drive, you can manually copy the contents of the original CD-ROM to a folder on the hard disk, and then drag the data to the CD-R drive that has had the original media removed.


NOTE: You can also right-click the files, click Send To, and then click the name or drive letter of your writable CD drive to copy the files.



To initiate the record process, either right-click the CD-R drive, and then click Write these files to CD, or double-click My Computer, click the CD-R drive, and then click Write these files to CD on the File menu.

I like to store my doc. on a memorex rw CD. I have never used one before, can you help me? I need step by step instr. Thanks


Hello ccashin65
First , remember that a cd has a max storage capacity of 750 MB and that you may need several cd's to stock all your data . If your system is running under Windows 7 , you can use a DVD , a single sided one ( the most common sise ) has about a 4,5 GB storage capacity ( 4500 MB ) . But let's say you need to use cd's .
Insert the cd in your coputer's drive . Go to the documents you need to transfer and give one click on them so they will be highlighted .
Now , presuming you are running Windows XP : look in the left panel of the window and click on " copy to cd " and wait for the wizard to guide you further on .
If you are under Windows 7 : you first need to have the menu bar shown above the window . Look on the left side of the tool bar above , click on " organize " select " layout " and check " menu bar " . The menu bar appears now above the tool bar . Select your files , click on " edit " in the menu bar and chose " copy to folder " . Select now the drive hosting your cd and click on it , clik " copy " and Windows will do the job . You can use a dvd , it's exactly the same operation .
Note : Windows XP will not accept dvd's , only cd's .
Good luck !
Best regards ,

Cd rw can not copy and read dvd


A CDRW is not capable of reading and writing files on a DVD. It is only capable of reading and writing files on a CD. If you need a drive that can read and write files on a DVD the you need to get a DVD+-RW drive.

Thanks.

How do I format a disc (DVD or CD) on Windows XP?


You only format a CD/RW or a DVD/RW, which are re-writeable.

Regular discs do not need to be formatted (CD-R or DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+R DL, etc.).

To format the DVD/RW idisc, use the "burner" software ( Sonic?, Nero?) and choose [Tools] [Erase Disc] (erase is the same as format)

I download video from my flip video, but I cannot burn to DVD-RW...it says to insert CD which I have already done


What CD are you using to Burn then movie?

Get a Blank DV Rewriteable CD (make sure its blank)

Format the DVD CD by right clicking it from Windows Explorer and follow the instructions. (this should not be neccessary especially if its a blank CD)

Use a normal copy and paste from Windows Explorer to copy the movie file or folder into the DVD drive.

this process absolves the issue of media formats and portability. Also most CD DVD Burning Softwares are not compatible with some players.

Reinstalling xp home edition


Hi there.
Clean the lens on the CD/DVD rom and make sure that the install disk is clean and free of fingerprint smudges, then try to install again, one more thing to clean is the system memory, take it out and clean the contacts and slots with a soft, dry, clean paintbrush.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!
