    CDs come in two flavors. CD- and a CD+ 
    Plus doesn't work in minus machines and visa versa.
    Wondering if your machine takes the opposit one from the one that you  purchased?

Its a common problem with CDs. Check that your CD drive can PLAY CDs. If so either the CD drives optical head is dirty or your CD pack are low quality. CDs damage real easy. Try putting another CD, another brand or you must use CD doctor-something like that. Did that help

I'm trying to burn a music CD on my new HP computer and can't get the source disk to download to my hard drive. I'm an old dude and did print out the HP instruction sheet-still confused.


Hello rhughes612,

You may try burn by CD to CD burn but if you want to select files that you want to burn, you have to ripped the music from the Music CD by using Window Media Player 10 or higher. Or try using software that ripped music from CD.

This is the instruction of CD to CD:

1. Insert the source disk
2. Then hit burn or copy to CD on your HP CD & DVD burner software or application.
Then it will be temporarily copied to the hard drive.
3. after it finishes copying the source disk, you will be ask to insert a blank CD then hit continue or OK

Please reply or respond if this doesn't work so that I could provide you another solution and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs ...does this mean.. to burn the cd onto the computer?


Hello, to Rip a CD to your computer means to convert the audio on the CD into a format that your computer can play, such as mp3 or wma. Windows media player can rip CDs to both formats and stores them in your music folder. Just insert your CD and the option to rip should pop up.
To Burn a CD means the reverse, to transfer music files from your computer to a CD. Media player does this a well, just click the Burn tab to begin.
Thanks for asking, and using FixYa

How to burn a dvd from an acer laptop


The laptop should have come with CD/DVD burning software preloaded. Acer's specs page for your model says it comes with NTI Media Maker. The program will have help information available to guide you through, and you can find more help online. If you just want to write data files onto a DVD, the process typically is not much more than dragging files to a layout window and telling the program to burn the disc. This gives you a way to back up data, or to store movies in formats you can view on a computer (AVI, MPG, etc.).

On the other hand, if you're asking how to make a video DVD that will play in a regular DVD player like a commercial movie, maybe with features like menus or scene selection and such, the process for making that kind of DVD is more involved. You need some DVD authoring software. NTI may offer that capability, but I'll admit I have never looked.

In most cases, the software that comes preloaded on computers is a limited version of some commercial product. The computer manufacturers get paid to include the program, and the software company hopes you'll buy the full version when you discover the limitations. If you don't want to pay for software, there are free, more full-featured programs available for downloading.

For general CD and DVD burning, I use CDBurnerXP. To make video DVDs, I use a program called DVDStyler. Both are open-source, meaning they are 100% free to download and use, and they both offer a lot of features.

Problems burning cd's using my memorex dvd multi recorder 16x


It can be CD-blank media problem. Try another brand or if you use CD-RW try to use CD+RW.
Also try to use simulation mode. If it works fine it can be CD-blank media problem.
Good Luck

I cannot burn a music CD from Napster. My blank CD is a CD-R. Do I need RW?


No you do not need RW. With the CD-R you can only burn to it once. With RW you can burn to it multiple times plus erase it.

Most cd burners work with CD+R and CD-R but it is best to be sure.

Be sure to try more than one of your CD-R discs. I've brought out a new cd burner on a warranty repair in the past and found that the customers cd burner was fine and when a different CD-R was tried they were able to burn onto a cd without a problem.

CD-R problem


If this is happening it's usually a sign that your drive is failing as it can no longer read the media type, but just double check, if you are using Nero that you havent got DVD highlighted in the start smart as the media to burn to.
