Sounds like you need to re install windows. And maybe upgrade the amount on RAM in your machine.

I don't know how to download cd's and dvd's on dell EL-1210-09


What do you mean download cd's and dvd's? You don't download them, you simply put them in the drive and play them. If you purchased a music cd or a movie dvd that you want to play or watch, then just put it in the drive. The system will recognize it and automatically open Windows Media Player for you to play it or you can open it yourself if autoplay is not active.

Exactly what is it that you are trying to do?

If you are talking about putting a blank cd or dvd into the drive to copy music or a movie to it, that's another story and will take a while to explain. You will basically need to make sure your CD/DvD drive can burn CD's or Dvd's. Then you will need some type of burning software (later versions of Window Media Player will burn).

Click Start/My Computer and look at your devices. if your DvD/CD Drive is listed look for RW which means rewritable (it can burn or copy). If it say DVDrw it can read and write dvd's. If it says CDrw it can read and write cd's. You can also look on the drive door on the computer where you would place the cd or dvd. If it says Rewritable CDrw (it can write cd's) or DvDrw (it can write dvd's). If it says ROM (read only media), that means it can Read Only and not write.

If the drive is rewritable then the software such as Media Player will allow you to go find what you want to put on the cd or dvd. You have two ways of putting things in the software to burn or write. You can copy and paste, or you can drag and drop.

Burn a Data CD or DVD in Windows 7 Using Media Player


You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player. An audio CD can contain just approximately eight minutes of music. On the other hand, if you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player, it will be able to hold numerous hours of music. Video files and pictures can also be added to the data discs.
When you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7, the Windows Media Player does not transform the selected files to a different format prior to saving them to a blank data disc, so the files stay in the compressed condition. This allows you to put much more items on a single disc.As the format of the files is not changed, the quality of the files remains the same.

You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player as follows:
  • Click Start.
  • Click All Programs.
  • Select Windows Media Player.
  • Click the Burn tab in the Player Library.
  • Click Burn options and select Data DVD or CD.
  • Insert a blank disc into the CD or DVD burner of your computer.
  • Close the AutoPlay dialog box if it comes into sight.
  • Some people have more than one CD drive in their computer. If you have multiple CD drives in your computer too, select the one you would like to use in the navigation window.
  • Look for the songs you want to burn.
  • In order to make your burn list, drag the songs from the details pane in the center of the Player Library to the list pane which is on its right side.
  • You can also change the order of the items in the burn list by dragging them upward or downward in the list.
  • To remove a song from your list, simply right-click on the item and click on Remove from list.
  • After you finish making your list, click upon Start burn.
It can take a while to burn a data disc. If your selected items cannot fit in one disc, you also have the choice of burning the rest of the items to a different disc. A data DVD is not the same as a DVD-Video disc ex. the movie DVD you buy or rent from the store.

I bought some old radio shows on from amazon, and it such a large number of shows that they put them on a dvd . I would like to down- load them on cd so I can play them in my car or cd players....


It depends on the format that they were put on the DVD initially, to play these on a car stereo or CD player they may need converting to be recognised by a standard CD player.

In vista, you can use Windows Media Player to do this. I'd recommend copying them to your computer from the DVD by creating a folder called "radio shows" or similar in an area you can easily find again On the desktop is a good place.

Now open Windows Media Player and insert a blank CD into your CD/DVD drive (I'm assuming you have an optical drive that will burn cd's)

In the menu of Media player, you will see a tab called "burn", click on it and you get the option on the right of the pane to "create a burn list". Make sure the icon says audio cd

Now open the folder you just created called "radio shows", select the first shows you want to burn to cd and drag the file onto the area marked "drag items here to create a burn list"

As you add files the CD meter should start to fill up, when it is near full, you can click on "start burn" which is at the bottom of the pane. Your compilation should now burn to a cd, repeat for the next cd.

If you get stuck, under the burn tab, there is a help with burning guide

How do i download and burn dvds


What are you trying to download? To burn a CD in Windows 7, just insert a blank CD/DVD, drag files, videos, pictures etc to the CD/DVD window - or right click send to and select your CD/DVD burner. A window will appear that says "files are ready to be burned to CD". Click on that window. Click burn files to DVD. If you are going to want to play the DVD on a DVD player or on another computer, select mastered when it asks how you want to format the DVD. Let me know if you want or need more details.

I have never burned a CD. I have need of burning two tonight. What do I do?


are you burning a cd or dvd? burning a cd is pretty easy...windows will do most of the work for you. put a blank cd in your cd rom/ dvd burner drive. it will ask you what you want to do with the blank cd...vista usually asks you to format the disk...select ok.....a blank box will pop up....drag and drop your files to be burned into the blank box.....once you are done putting your media onto the disc....eject the disk...before the drive opens a box at the bottom of the screen says that the disc is being prepared for use on other computers. when it ejects, it should be done....you can try to put it back in to the cd drive and see if your data/media files are on the disc. ......now burning a dvd is alot more complicated....do you have software for burning dvd media? if you do, they have help me files and tutorials........some more good advice....youtube also shows good tutorial vids on burning. just type in "burn a cd or dvd".

Toshiba laptop won't burn cd from itunes


I had the same promblem. What you should do is make a serperate file on you desktop and drag all of your music that you burn or download to that folder first. Drag it to Itunes after that. Now, you only have to drag the songs to Itunes if you want them on there for you iPod. Take the songs from the folder, and drag them to windows media players burn list. Insert a blank disc and you should be good. Keep in mind that you can only do this if you put downloaded or burned music to the created folder first. If you take it to Itunes first, you will have to re-download or re-burn your music again.
Hopefully this helped you guys.
