Which Program? There is a difference between Burn and Copy.
Copy means you have a CD or DvD that already has something on it such as a music CD or a movie DvD and you want to copy it. The system normally reads the CD or DvD and copies the contents to disk then asks you to put in a blank CD or DvD to make the copy.
Burn means you have Data Files, Documents or Music that is already on the disk drive and you want to put it on a Cd or DvD. Normally you just put in a blank CD or DvD then either Drop and Drag, Browse or Copy and Paste the files you want on the CD or DvD.
is it a blank cd? if so try going to the start menu my computer right click on drive (E:) properties and make sure writing on this device is enabled if its not a blank cd but a copied one it may be the disk thats the problem not your computer. if its a shop brought music cd copyright protected it may not read it because of copyright laws!!! if its like this with all cds then you laser may be faulty
Hi saratrought, if Windows XP runs and you have read problems in CD/DVD drive try to read another disk, if any other disk work fine then you need to copy your CD/DVD info (or program) in another new disk.
Or just use Windows Explorer to try copy all data from CD/DVD disk to a New Folder in your Hard Drive and then from that location you can try to install your program, if your data don´t copy well then again i tell you that it´s your disk not your CD/DVD drive.
CD drives work by reflecting a laser to a sensor, where the existance or absence of a reflected signal corresponds to a 1 or a 0 in the binary code.
Prefessional "pressed" CD have a much greater level of "contrast" between 1 and 0, while CD-Rs have a lower contrast and CD-RWs lower still. This is why many older CD players that were not designed to read CD-Rs will either not read writable disks, or will read only CD-Rs and not CD-RWs.
Since you are able to read "high contrast" CDs but not lower contrast CD-Rs, it sounds as though your drive is getting a poorer signal than it did when it was new. This could be:
The laser is old and fading out.
The system is mis-aligned.
The lens is dirty and the signal is not all passing through to be detected.
You can't do much about the first two, other than buying a new drive (you could get a replacement internal one, or an external USB CD drive). However, before you do that, try very carefully cleaning the lens. A laptop CD drive usually has a try with the lens mounting in it which spits out with the CD, so you could either clean it manually with a little rubbing alcohol (isoproyl alcohol), or meths on a cotton-wool bud, or preferably get a lens-cleaning CD and run that in the drive.
