Question about Everex StepNote VA4103M Notebook

1 Answer

CD Writer doesn't write.

It will play songs from CD's just fine. However, when I try to burn a CD, it won't write. My Windows Media Player will tell me that the burn is complete, but the CD is blank. I've tried cleaning the writer, checking for viruses, and making more space on my computer. I don't want to buy an external drive, but I don't know what else to do! Any suggestions?

Your burner has two laser inside it. One read and one write. Sounds like the write laser is toast. This is acutaly a fairly common failure among cd and dvd drives.

Reinstall the drivers with the latest and if you still have no luck then it will be time for a replacement.

WANT TO BURN A DATA-CD OR A DATA DVD ON WINDOWS 7 USING WINDOWS MEDIA ...


Burning a Data cd on dvd on windows 7 is very easy and simple using Windows media player....

just follow the steps given below:

1) Click on the Start button

2) Click on All programs

3) Go to Windows Media player

4) Once the player is open look for the Player library and click on the Burn Tab There.

5) Once the Burn options are opened click on Data DVD or CD

6) Insert a blank cd into your cd-rom.....make sure the type of cd you are inserting is same as the
option you select for burning.

7) if in case auto play box opens then close it

8) In order to make it easier, prior to starting the procedure of burning a dvd or a cd make a folder on
the desktop which includes the data or the songs that you want to burn in......it makes it easier to locate a single
folder rather than to search individually for an item.

9) Drag the songs you want to burn right into the middle of the player library's list pane which lies on its right side

10) for removing a certain song, right click and select remove from list

11) after your'e done with the selection, just click on the START BURN button

12)It takes a little time to burn a data disc. Make a note that data DVD is not as same as DVD video disc.

That's it and you get a whole set of songs into your cd just within a few minutes.........so get goin.!!!

Good Luck!!!!!

Windows Vista Premium. Trying to rip a cd to my computer. Unable to do so. CD plays fine if i play music from the cd itself. Tried Itunes 1st. Rips about 12 secs of audio for each song. Says complete....


maybe the windows has this security issues. coz from my point of view windows vista is dedicated on security. so that's why you cannot rip most of the songs very well.

How to record from a website to cd on laptop


To burn cd/dvd you have to check :

1. Your laptop cd/dvd drive have what capability:
- cd writer = only burn cd
- cd writer/dvd reader(combo) = still only burn cd
- dvd writer = can burn cd, dvd single layer(4GB)
- dvd DL writer = can burn cd and dvd single 4GB and dual layer 8GB.
Other than those, is not possible.

2. Must have burn apps named:
- Nero
- Alcohol 120%
- other. search internet.

If you have them then using the apps to burn, just read the manual.

Koam114 is in Korean. I don't understand :)
But If you want songs from website, you should download it first.
Unless the site is giving you a step by step how to burn songs directly to your cd/dvd.
Once downloaded, would be easier to burn to cd/dvd.

Coby mp3 player problem


Write the songs to a CD (or a CDRW) first, then re-rip them to Windows Media Player/iTunes/whatever as mp3s, or unprotected WMAs.

Honestly it's easier to burn and re-rip than remove the copy protection. When you burn it to a CD, the DRM goes away, and you'll have a new file that actually plays on your player.
