Maybe, they're not stored at the Memorex-disc, but at your local disc. There's a map at your C-drive, where Windows stores -by default- your images. Best is to open a program which you use to store pictures at your computer. Try to store a new image, and see where Windows is storing this.

If in the other case it's indeed stored at the Memorex drive, go to this drive and right-click with your mouse. A pop-up-screen will be shown, where your can select the tab "properties". A new window will pop-up, where you can see some specs about it. Try to find the "attributes"-section. There you can see if a map is indeed hidden or not.
Actually I doubt it, the map with pictures is hidden or read-protected. These options are most of the time just used for specific maps where a user should not go to mess around. like the "Windows"-map or "Documents and Settings"-map.

SOURCE: Write Protection on Hard Drive

I think your machine could be affected with a virus. Most of the viruses do that to block you to access the hard disk or any external media. Try this good antivirus that i have come across the net its a demo version that works for 30 days but it will do you good.

Here is the download link:

SOURCE: Deleting files does not free up disk space

Note that "deleted" items move from their location into the "Recycle Bin".

So, "empty" the Recycle Bin, in order to reclaim the space.

Or, when deleting:
1. click ONCE to select a file/folder to be deleted
2. hold the SHIFT key down
3. click the DELETE key
4. release the SHIFT key

This will "permanently" delete the file/folder, immediately freeing-up the disk-space.

Is there a way to find hidden files on a CD program?


If they are hidden, you cannot copy using windows. Try cloning with CloneZilla etc.

What does memorex dual layer dvd+r mean? How do you record a movie that is over 130 min. We purchased 240 min just for this reason and we can not get it to record over 120. How do you finish recording the...


Well all DVD+R mean that when you finish copying files to the disk, the disk will lock itself and not allow any more files to be burned onto that DVD. The reason why you can'f fit your movie onto the disk is because the movie file may be bigger than the amount the DVD disk can hold. Just because the time of the movie is less than what the DVD can hold, doesn't mean its going to fit. Take for example a Blue ray movie, it may only be 120 minutes long but the file of the movie can be over 2 GB of space.

How to copy mpeg file to pendrive. when i am trying to copy 5.58 gb file to 16 gb pen drive it shows drive is full


I think it could be due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, thats why user can't see the files and the space available for use is less than the capacity.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and seclect SHOW HIDDEN FILES. It may show the hidden files. Otherwise, if you dont have any vital data on the drive, just format it. Make sure you backup all your data and verify it before formatting the drive. Hope this would fix the issue and you would be able to enjoy the full capacity of the disk

Let me know if any further clarification is required. Hope this helps! Dont forget to rate the solution!!

How do i copy a disk


Before you Begin Make sure there is no program runing that has opened any file on the original disk. You cannot run the Disk Copy procedure if any file on the original or destination disks is in use by any program. For example, if you were editing a document in MS Word, saving to the disk in Drive A, and now want to copy it to another disk: FIRST quit the MS Word program, then execute the Disk Copy procedure. Caveat LectorThis Disk Copy procedure will make an exact copy of the original disk on the copy disk. It will completely overwrite the copy disk, replacing anything on it with the contents of the original (source) disk. That means that if there are any files on the copy (destination) disk before you begin, those files will be destroyed. You might want to take a look at the destination disk before beginning to be sure there's nothing on it you want to save. -------- Copying a Disk
  1. Double-Click on the My Computer icon on the Desktop. The My Computer window will open.
  2. In the My Computer Window, click once (not the usual double-click!) to select the icon for 31/2 Floppy A:
  3. Click on the File menu and select Copy Disk. The Copy Disk window will open onscreen.
  4. In the Copy Disk window you will see the option:Copy from 3 1/2 Floppy (A:) to 3 1/2 Floppy (A:)Click on the Start button.
  5. A new window will open prompting you to Insert the disk you want to copy from (source disk). Insert the disk and then click on the OK button. The program will begin "reading" the files from this original (source) disk. You can watch the progress in the little "progress bar" in the Copy Disk window.
  6. Once the original disk has been read into memory you'll be prompted toInsert the disk you want to copy to (destination disk)Now remove the original (source) disk from the drive and insert the copy (destination) disk into the drive. The click the OKbutton. You can watch the progress as the computer "writes" to the copy (destination) disk in the Progress bar in the Copy Disk window.
  7. When the copy is completed you'll see a new, small window popup that will report:The copy completed successfullyNow remove that copy (destination) disk. You are finished!
------- This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

I purchased a pack of Memorex CD-R rrecordable 52X 700MB 80 min. discs from Staples and I was told I could use these to transfer pictures from my drive c. When I put the CD in to the drive D it asks me to...


Cd-R does not need formatting. They are ready to burn. There is probably a problem with your cdr drive.

A cd-rom drive is not a burner.

Are you sure you have a burner and not a cd-rom?

If you do have a burner, try another few disks. If it still says insert disk then your burner has crapped out.

Set Up


It sounds like you have not copied all the files onto your NEW CD.
Do not try to copy the files manually. I suggest you use a disc copying programe which will copy any hidden files.
Alternatively, set your computer to ' show all hidden files' then you can copy them manually.
Any probs with this contact me.
