You need a DVD burner program to do it. Nero should work. If you get the right version you can put the DVD menus on there as well.

Well it says "Burn Failed" so that pretty much means either the burn drive is bad, the software you are using is corrupt, or you were burning to quickly and the burn failed because of a speed issue.
I would suggest downloading a free program like CDBurnerXPPro from this link
http://www.download.com/CDBurnerXP-Pro/3000-2646_4-10409087.html
When it prompts you whether to run or save hit run. The program will download and ask you to install. You can just click next to all of the questions. Once you are done installing there will be a shortcut on your desktop to the program. Open the program and put together a disc and then hit burn. If you can't burn out of this program then you can't burn out of any program :)

Hi there,

i do belive there is a bug in the media centre, as for the XP version and the extender.

i can advise on doing a sytem restore to a previous date, and this should remove the updates.

or you could do a full system restore using your recovery disks, this is how i managed to sort mine out, and it worked a treat.

Hope this helps

How can i change my wallpaper? i had samsung n150pus.. i tried to look up in control panel setting i coud'nt see or find it!o


Hi fforinas,
Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?
Are you using Windows 7 Starter Edition? If yes, then you cannot change the wallpaper.
Windows 7 Starter has limitations:

Windows 7 Starter does not include:

* Aero Glass, meaning you can only use the Windows Basic or other opaque themes. It also means you do not get Taskbar Previews or Aero Peek.
* Personalization features for changing desktop backgrounds, window colors, or sound schemes.
* The ability to switch between users without having to log off.
* 64 bit version
* Multi-monitor support.
* DVD playback.
* Windows Media Center for watching recorded TV or other media.
* Remote Media Streaming for streaming your music, videos, and recorded TV from your home computer.
* Domain support for business customers.
* XP Mode for those that want the ability to run older Windows XP programs on Windows 7.

I suggest that you upgrade your Windows 7 Starter to Windows 7 Home Premium.
Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

When i click on burn from the windows dvd maker an error message comes up indicating that my blank media is not recordable. I have tried using dvd-r and dvd+r.


Try to use different program to burn your dvds, try to use Nero, but this msg also means that Your DVd drive is not burner double check from the device manager if its says read only this means it cannot burn, it has to say write too.

Windows media center file issue


Some premium channels have DRM locks so that they aren't able to be copied or played on other players, which is most likely what's happening here.
