Re: Can't delete Songs.

If you have a cd rw (read/write) device and a cd rw disc then you can delete songs. same is true for dvd...must have dvd rw capabilities. if you have the rw capability, and still cannot delete then there is a problem with the hardware or software of the device or windows.

My Cd/DVD burner has disappeared I have tried deleting the upper and lower filters and it still doesn't show up the tray opens the light comes on but it's not usable or found anywhere I have an HP...

Try this:

I have to ask, after deleting the upper & lower filters did you reboot the PC?

If so try this:
Go to:
Start>(right click on Computer)left click on Manage.
Left click on Device Manager
Locate your DVD/CD-Rom drives.
Right Click on the DVD/CD Rom-drive> uninstall Now reboot the PC.

If the drive does not come back in Computer> devices with removeable storage go back to Device Manager (Start>right click computer>Device Manager) to see if you can see DVD/CD Rom-drive.If you dont see the drive in this location then it sounds as if your DVD/CDRom-drive is no longer working and you will have to replace it.

Good luck!

Its pluggen into my laptop but its an unknown device and windows media player will not let me burn songs onto a cd

Did you put a disk in the drive first before trying to burn? if not you do that first then Media player will detect it saying unknown media select cd or DvD then select format for songs mp3 if thats what you want and then copy your songs on to the disk. If you need more help let me know.

You probably didn't load all the drivers for it from the start up disc, see if you can repair by reloading the disc or delete all and start over

I got my songs picked out on windows media player and was wondering how to get them copied on my iomega cd-rw

No problem. Just pop in a disc and in the windows media player there will be a tab that says burn. Just select the songs you want to copy and on the side it will tell you how much room you have on the disc. Usually you can put between 17-20 songs on one disc. When you are ready to copy, just hit burn and it will copy the songs onto the disc. During this time you can even listen to other music while it is doing that. Hope this helps. Oh also make sure your burner is set to make sure this function is enabled right click on your cd-drive icon in My Computer. Click Properties. Find the box that says enable write recording and make sure it is checked otherwise you will not be able to burn any cd's. You only have to do this once. The computer will remember your settings each time you log on. Cheers.

Drive not recognised

Sounds like a possible problem with the usb ports. Does the usb drive work on other pc's? If so, does your laptop recognize other usb devices (flash drives, mouse, keyboard etc.)?

If your laptop won't recognize other usb devices all the time, try this: go into device manager, go to the bottom, expand 'universal serial bus controllers'. Starting at the bottom of the list, right click on each item and left-click 'delete'. At some point you will likely lose your mouse/tochpad as it is probably an internal usb device. If this happens, press the power button on the laptop once to shut it down. Restart it, and windows will re-detect the deleted usb hubs and hopefully fix the problem. If this doesn't do it, go back and delete the other usb root hubs and host controllers. This is totally safe for your system and often fixes this issue. Windows will always re-detect hardware at boot time.

let me know if this helps or not :)

do the following
1. Copy the songs to a local if it's not there
2. Play the song, check if there are any disturbance
3. If there are disturbances in the songs, it indicates that the files are corrupted.
4. If the songs play properly, then it's a problem with your cd drive
