It should be possible. You'll still need any serial numbers that Dell supplied to install from it. Try making an image file in your CD/DVD recording software to see if the disk can be copied. That way you can avoid wasting a blank, or at least minimize the possibility.

Around track 8 in its recording process it breaks up the audio signal so when we duplicate it kick out a error then kicks out the CD's


this could be caued by a few possibilities you might not have select to burn an audio copy or the burning software does not support the burning of audio copies although if it burns a few before being interrupted it probably will support audio burning

the other possible reason might be the cd/dvd burner is not getting continuos power during the burn process

I turned my computer on and tried copying some music onto a disc but it would'nt let me. it wasn't on my devices with removeable in my computer. i followed online help but nothing seems to work any...


It will not possible to COPY songs from a commercially (original disc) available easily as you copy a regular file. In such cases you need to RIP the music files from the disc. There are soft-wares available that can rip files off the disc. Click on the link below:

http://www.freerip.com

Download and install Freerip. You can save t as mp3 format and copy to a cd to play in devices that play mp3 format or copy in wav format and then create a CD using a CD authoring software to create a regular disk. However, please note that copyright protected material should only be copied, if you own the original CD and should be done done only for archiving.

How do you reformat a computer


Assuming you don't mean the BIOS...
It suffices usually to reinstall Windows or whichever OS you intend to use. You let the installation program format the partition (watchout you loose all data which was on that partition)

About installation


If you do have some backup on your file, you need to have other Hard Disk Drive to copy all of the files inside.

My CD drive won't let me burn CD's anymore. Why?


Try choosing a different set of songs, if still your CD burning fails, try copying large chunk of data or a data cd to cd copy if possible. If this also fails, you have to give your cd burner for service / replacement based on the warranty entitled.

Dell Cd/Dvd burner not working properly


I have a Dell XPS 400 that's about 3 years old. I have a DVD reader and a DVD-RW device. The former works - the latter takes forever to read discs (particularly DVD data discs.)

I'm starting to think some of the generic DVD-RW devices Dell uses in its computers are prone to early failure. The DVD-RW in my XPS-400 was called "HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H21N".

I'm going to try cleaning it, and then just swap it out for a better device.

Reinstall Os


I'm not entirely familliar with this system and also it appears to be discontinued from the manufacturer, http://www.mfdigital.com/ it may be possible to "clone" a disk from a working one using Norton ghost or something similar. (but that means finding someone willing to let you dissasemble their working one), with norton ghost you should be able to copy entire disk from the working disk to a new disk. the manufacturer does have a firmware update disk for this but that most likely only updates the system once it is working.
