I can't get my computer to "read" that the disk is even in the drive to burn my vacation pictures

I have been trying to "burn" my vacation pictures, I have a "never opened" pack of KHypermedia 4.7 GB DVD+r 4X disks - I can't get my Dell computer to read that it's even in the Drive, I put other disks (Memorex) and it reads it fine, but there's not enough storage on my Memorex. I think I've tried about 4 of the disks and the same results. Any suggestions? or are they just garbage?

    check the front door of the drive. make sure it is a DVD not CD burner.

    sounds like you are trying to burn DVD on a CD burner

It will not play Verbatim DVD-R disc that I burnt on my computer.


If it can read any other disk, you should burn your disk again because burning process was incorrect. your computer can't recognize the disk. In this case, probably you can't do anything, no way to try to read a bad disk if computer can't even "see" it.
By the way, you should test to read the disk on some other computer.
If happens with ALL your disks, your optical player is defective.
Again test reading with other computer if record was made correctly
As for your device, you should check if worth to repair and decide if repair or replace it.

When i am going to boot my pc through usb (window 7 ultimate) it show disk read error.....


I can think of three likely problems and one unlikely problem.
1. Did you really burn the ISO image to the pen drive? Did you use software such as freeisoburner: http://www.freeisoburner.com/to burn the ISO to the drive or did you just copy the ISO to the drive? If you just copied it, then the computer can't read the files
2. The USB drive may be broken. Have you tried burning the ISO to another flash drive or disk?
3. The copy of windows you downloaded wasn't the whole thing and there are missing files that once again, the computer can't read or find
4. Your USB ports on the computer is broken.

This means that you should try to copy all the pictures from the device onto your computer's disk-drive, while you still can!

Or, select a bunch of images, and burn them to CD/DVD-writable disks. Select another bunch, and repeat.

Unistalled ext hd unsafely, now not being recognized.


It could be that the "table of contents" on the external disk-drive has been scrambled. Whatever you _do_ try, do _NOT_ try to run 'CHKDSK' (or "check disk") against the drive.

Instead, look online for "File Scavenger" software, which can read through the drive, sector by sector, and try to "stitch" together the pieces, in order to "recover" your files.

How do recover picture and music files only from hard drive. The computer that it was attached crashed and even when I tried to restore it before it crashed the data would not transfer to the restore point...


Connect the external drive to a different computer, and "browse" the contents of the drive -- if the disk can be read, then the files can be copied, and maybe burned to "blank" writable CD/DVD disks.

SanDisk Memory Card~Unrecognized file format


  1. 1 Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  2. 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  3. 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  4. 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  5. 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  6. 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.
