Hello , i hope you can tie this in w/ page 1. im going to post the problem and hopefully you can attach it to my first email. i have been told that when you delete any type of media player or burning software or both can cos this to happen. microsoft wrote a program just for this reason. i tried it 3 times and it did not work. i deleted realplayer when i was refunded. i did a trial w/ corel products and win dvd copy6 ( i believe, but i didnt like them. i heard real player made some changes to their latest version so i did a trial of 14 days. same story and same ole dance. i PERSONALLY RECOMMEND NOT TO USE REAL PLAYER.PLUS OR
GOLD ITS CALLED ALSO. i burned about 20 - 70 minute dvds that i had downloaded and they were fine. I USED TDK DVD+RW DISCS.
there first solution was that rw discs might not burn.AND I SHOULD NOT USE THEM. only dvd+r or dvd-r. i still have the 20 that i burned so
they are coming up with some real strange responses. buti do know for a fact that they cant fix it. the error appears while burning and tells you there is no solution. i sure hope you can help. thank you very much
for your time. don................

    to clokker , we download movies and music videos and my other

    half burns soaps when she has a double shift. this is an example

    from me trying to burn videos on realplayer. notes media does not have a dvd burning program, only cd music. okay: i download at

    least 72-75 mins to my hard drive. they go into realplayer library , i

    put a blank dvd+rw in the drive and burn the videos to the disc and play them on our home dvd player. "realplayerplus" or " gold " as its called at times will burn the following formats: real , realone ,

    windows media, mp4 mp3 , div-x , quicktime , and the best is also plays windows ME which i dont use at all.. it can

    asically burn any dvd or format except anything to do with PAL.

    i hope this is useful. thank you, don barajasa

Hello.The best you can do is to buy a new dvd drive...i got almost the same problem with a old sony drive.
But to make video i use convertXtodvd from VSO.
For me is that the best solution....
It convertes all format to dvd (bluray,hddvd,divx...,you can add menu`s ,and subtitles...
Try it and you will love it.

You may want to do a firmware upgrade on the rom drive, a lot of times this can take care of reading/writing problems. If you can identify the model of rom drive I can point you in the right direction for the updated firmware.

    As with all firmware upgrades you run them at your own risk. Firmware upgrades are generally recommended only if you are having reading and writing issues with media. Some firmware upgrades will block you from returning to previous versions so you should be prepared for this eventuality. Once again, use at your own risk...

    Here is the link to the firmware upgrade for your rom drive. Follow the directions in the read me file to install the flash.

    Hey Don, not a problem. Hope we all can work this out for you.

    Just a few added notes - as I was researching your drive type I noted a lot of posts regarding similar problems such as the ones you described in your first post, that model of LG seems to have some quirks to it. A firmware upgrade might just do the trick but in some cases a drive just has issues. I've owned one or two myself.

    Should it come down to it and you wish to grab a solid functional replacement drive click here to do a search on ebay for an inexpensive replacement dvd with even more options than your current one.

    [ Note: I don't sell dvd drives on ebay and none of the results from the link above are my auctions. This info is provided only to give you more options to solving your problem. ]

    Best of luck...

Good afternoon im hoping you might be able to help me. I had received a new wifi network name an password idont know how to change from the old one to the new one

Hi Judith,

you need to login to the router admin page to be able to do that. you will have to connect the computer to the router with the help of an ethernet cable to do that and have the ip address of the router and the old password.

call 1-877-805-1027 for step by step assistance.

Roxio CinePlayer DVD Decoder pack just purchased, states on cd no serial key required, however media player asks four a serial key?. Or go back a page for purchase. I can not understand what you do by...

hi allen, im ravi and i was just looking at links for roxio as i have media 10 version and was looking for new add-ons if possible and i came across ur problem and i thought of a solution quiet quickly... i am not a 100% sure it will work but i know a website which gives you serials and usernames for applications like roxio and nero etc. is the webste but before you enter u need to know some stuff about it.

1. at the top of the page there are aload of alphabets which each line corisponds to a certain area like for example game serials etc. at the bottom of the list is the apps serials where you choose what ever let you need and for this problem of course its R for roxio :D.

2. just search and find the name after the click the letter as it give a long list for you of all other apps as well.

3. when you have found it and click on it... here is where the important part is ... you only copy and paste the information needd that is provided from crackzplant. do not download anything from that website.. everything there has atleast one virus or malware etc. attached to it if you download it. if u just copy and paste and browse the website then there is no harm going to happen to your website... hope this has been helpful and hope you get your problem sorted
