Not recognizing disc in D drive

OK...first off...I am a technical dummy. A nice guy, but a technical dummy. We are trying to rip/burn some audio books on her HP. It allows us to rip, but when we try to burn, we get a message saying it is not recognizing the media in the D: drive. One, we are using DVD-R discs (when I bought them, she said she had a dvd burner, which she does not. Can you burn audio onto these kind of discs? And if it can, why is it not recognizing it. I'm trying to do this through her Windows Media Center. Thanks in advance, Gary

Hi, well the short answer is NO. You cannot use DVD's in a CD Writer at all. So the simple answer is to get some CD-R and copy the files to them. OR get a Combo DVD/CD writer and install that as well.. and then you can use both..

DVD drive read/burn problem


From the description the new DVD driver is defective and should be returned if still under warranty. The only concern that I have is the replacement you got is identical to the original and that it is not a aftermarket product, because they don't have the same specifications as the original.

I am trying to burn an audio CD with Roxio. I can get it to burn but my stereo will not recognize the disk as Having anything on it. I have tried several different things and it isn't working. What can I...


Try a different type of CD. If you're using CD+R discs, change to a CD-R and see if it works better for you. Also, make sure you finalize your session to verify that olde CD-ROM readers will read the disc. If you're burning MP3 files, make sure you're converting them to audio files on the way to the disc, as older stereos will not read MP3 files.

How do you burn discs that will play on a CDP-CX 355?


Anything that creates finalized standard audio cd's will do (filenames= xxx.cda). On a PC that would usually mean copying the files from original CD's rather than 'ripping them, then 'burning' the project to a disc.

I have a number of RiDiscs with 4.7GB of material ( lectures) that I want to download on smaller discs so that I can play on my car cd player. How do I accomplish this?


The easiest way:

check the item on the link below:

http://www.i-source-global.com/epages/170990.sf/?ObjectPath=/Shops/170990/Products/RFMP3SD2&ViewAction=ViewProductViaPortal&Locale=en_US

Copy your audio file from the disc to a USB (pen drive) I am assuming your files are in mp3 format. Else use the audio ripping software mentioned below to rip the audio file and save in mp3 format and copy that file into the pen drive/SD card.

Connect the transmitter to your cigarette lighter adapter. Turn your car radio on. Tune the FM channel to a frequency, where there is no radio channels. Note that frequency. There will be a + and minus button on the transmitter. Press it up or down to bring the transmitter to the noted frequency. You can now hear the audio through your radio.

Different options of this transmitter are available. Some use a SD card instead of USB drive. All cost around $25.00

The second method is to rip the audio files to your hard disc. Use any software. For an example,
Check the link below:

http://www.freerip.com/


Download and Install. If your cd player is capable of playing MP3 files, rip the audio files from your disc as mp3 files to your hard disk. copy them to regular cd's. (assuming you have a CD burning software)

If your cd player is not capable of playing mp3 files, rip them and save as .wav files.

Then you need a cd burning software.

Go to the link below:

http://alternativeto.net/desktop/k3b/?platform=windows

Download K3B. Install

Open it. Select, a new audio project.
Drag your .wav files into it. Burn it. and you are ready to go.

CD drawer won't open or close or recognize blank disc


Not very likely to be overheating. CD's don't really have drivers & if it was working OK then a firmware upgrade isn't needed. Full drive won't cause the problem.

Pretty much the drive has just died. If the motor runs when you hit the door button but the tray doesn't move - try *gently* pushing the door closed. If it doesn't go - new drive.

If the motor doesn't run when you push the button, you can check to see if the power cable somehow came off but that's extremely unlikely. Most probably you'll just have to get a new drive.

If you've been in the habit of pushing the tray to start it closing, stop!! That's the most common cause of your kind of problem. ALWAYS open and close with the button.

Good luck!

Won't recognize an MP3 format CD


Usually a disc with audio files is not encoded with MP3's, but, rather, audio files. You can check this by manually opening the disc (right click on the player when the disc is in it), and looking at the files. If you only see marker (files of a few kilobits) in "MP3" format, then the disc needs to be "ripped" into MP3 format.

The ratio for audio to MP3 is 10 :1--this means a CD of 700 MB size with 10 tracks will become an MP3 collection of 10 tracks approximately 70 MB in size (this is a standard 128kbps audio quality CD) If the encoding is less (64 or 32kbps), the size of the resulting MP3 is smaller.

The hands down best ripping software to convert your audio CD to MP3's is called Goldwave. Although Nero and Winamp have functionality on a limited basis for this task, Goldwave is a far superior software package to not only rip, but also edit your creations. Once you have installed Goldwave, you use the OPEN CD button to read your files---then save them to your hard drive (in what CODEC or quality you want---MP3, Apple AIF, OggVorbis, etc.etc
