Question about Sharp Actius MC24 Notebook

2 Answers

CD-R problem I am trying to burn music and photos to a CD with no success. The picture files are ready to be written. When I click on "Write these files to CD", I get a CD Writing Wizard. After I press "Next", there is a message " Insert a writable disc to continue." There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a writable CD into drive E:/ Now I have inserted many blank CDs, I even bought a new pack and tried them, but I am still getting the same error message. However, I can play music. But, when I try to burn music to a CD, it goes through all the burning process, but does not write it to the CD, and it opens. Please help.

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.

Cant copy to cd from computer

If you have reinstalled the operating system from scratch there is no simple way of getting your photos and videos back. Because part of the re-installion is to format your hard drive. The only possible way would be to send your hard drive away to a hard drive recovery company but this is very expensive and can cost many hundreds of pounds even if they cant recover it.
As for copying to a cd from your pc, you will need some software which most of the time comes free with your pc or cd drive. can you remember what software you used to use? the most common ones are call Nero or Roxio. There are many more though.
If you just want to copy them as they are onto a CD if you open up the CD drive in My computer and add the files to that folder then click File and then 'Write these files to disc' this may also work.

Hope this Helps.

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 am trying to burn a cd on my Acer Aspire 5536-5255 using WMP and it isn't working?

In Windows Media Player, click Library and then, in the List pane, click <List Name> List, and then click Burn List, as shown in the following screen shot.
  1. If you need to clear the list before beginning, click Burn List, and then click Clear List.
  2. Drag a folder from the Contents pane or songs from the Details pane to the List pane to create a list of songs to burn.
  3. In the burn list, drag songs up or down to arrange them in the order you want them to appear on the CD.
  4. Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW disc in the CD drive.
  5. In the List pane, verify that the songs you have selected to burn will all fit on the disc. If necessary, remove songs from the list by right-clicking a song and then clicking Remove from List, as shown in the following screen shot.

It is possible that a song will not fit even if the total time exactly matches the CD length, because the Player inserts two seconds between songs when burning. Click the Start Burn arrow and verify that Audio CD is selected, as shown in the following screen shot.
lick Start Burn.As the CD is burned, you can check its progress in the burn list. Burning a CD will take some time.Notes It is recommended that you do not try to perform any other actions while burning a CD. For example, playback may be affected if you try to play a music CD while burning a CD.

You cannot burn additional files to a CD after burning is completed. If you are using a CD-RW, you can erase the entire CD before using the Player to burn files to the CD again.

Dvd writer will not burn disc images, it will burn all other types ie music cds, data dvds, file backups, cant find name of dvd writer to get firmware update

Usually, you need software to read an 'ISO' disk-image file, and to decode the file, and to burn to a CD/DVD,
e.g., "AShampoo Burning Edition 6" is a free download from that will do the task.

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Select and expand the CD/DVD branch of the tree.
Double-click the CD/DVD drive.
Click Details to dislay the name/model of the device.

I want to download some photos to a cd/dvd from my e-mails

you can download the photo files to your PC from the e-mai, this option is provided in most all e-mail services. If not right-click the image and click save image as.....

Put this file in an easy to get to place that you are familiar with (such as My pictures, My Downloads, etc.)

Find the folder that contains the file and open the folder for viewing. (if still using XP right-click the folder and select explore)

In the left window that contains the directory tree, expand the Computer entry.

Then just drag and drop the pic you want to burn to the cd/dvd drive entry and it will add it to a burn list.

When you have all of your selections, right-click the cd/dvd drive entry and select burn to disc.

Can,t download or burn photos

Most likey the images have been moved from the orginal location. Try locating them by clicking on the Start Menu...Search...Pictures, Music or Video and check off the "Pictures and Photo's" box. Let the search run and see you can find your pictures. Right click on the white space in the seadch results windows and click on View...Thumbnails if you need to view the pics.

If you hover your mouse over the image it should tell you were the image is located (such as C:\Documents and Settings\(Username)\My Documents\My Pictures\(filename).jpg)
You can then go back to Photoshop open the image by going to that directory.
