SOURCE: cd/dvd drive problem

Try with another brand of disk; the Matsushita UJ870 drive of our 5315 burn my Sony CD's but not my Philips CD's (my Compaq V2617LA with an older Matsushita UJ840 drive has burned Phillips CD's in the last two monts)... Remember: CD and DVD lassers are different. I think because of that, i haven't see problems with Sony, Philips and Samsung DVD's... only with CD's...

Contact Acer support. Yes acer, not Gateway. Acer owns Gateway now, and is able to provide excellent support.

Re-writeable discs


It should say what discs your writer accepts on the tray of your CD or DVD writer. For instance DVD-R means it takes the negative DVD's. DVD+R means it takes the positive ones. RW means it is compatible with re-writeable discs.

Where can i buy a CD-RW Audio(rewritable) for my CDR 775 Audio Cd recorder?


Web search for them, check eBay. ANY media that has 'digital audio' in its description will work. They don't have to be re-writeable.

How do i download pics from comp to disk


Hi,
  1. Insert a writeable CD or DVD into your computer's CD or DVD recorder.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to data disc.
  3. In the Burn a Disc dialog box, type a name for this disc, and then click Next.
    It might take several minutes for the disc to be formatted in the default Live File System format. When the formatting is complete, an empty disc folder opens.
  4. Open the folder that contains the files you want to burn, and then drag the files into the empty disc folder.

    cdb4d559-8825-47a1-8175-79020965d91c.pngYou can copy files to the disc folder by dragging them to the disc icon or to an open disc folder As you drag files into the disc folder, they are copied automatically to the disc.

But I recommend you to use any CD or DVD burning software like Nero, BurnAware etc. There are lots of free burning tools available on Internet too.

Why I recommend third party software is because you can select burn speed plus minimum disc burning error.

Trying to burn a dvd with windows media player. the type of disc i purchased is DVD-R. It keeps telling me to insert a writeable disc?????


Have you burn a disc before with this computer??? if so, make sure the disc is new, no scratches, also, you can clean your disc tray with a dvd cleaner disc, not expensive and needs to be done after every 10hrs of use, keeping it clean will save you alot of heartache.....hope this helps.......

ASUS eeePC 900 Keeps rebooting at XP load screen.


You're computer is booting that's not your problem. Its just not booting into Windows which is a different subject, so a boot disk will not do you any good. You have some corrupted files at the Windows end not the start up end. The only way to correct the Windows corrupt files is to use a Windows disc. So you'll have to buy/borrow a portable DVD/CD player and a copy of windows. Once the Windows disc loads then its just a matter of clicking on "repair" when the disc asks..that one of the drawbacks of netbooks..If you have any questions let me know..

VGC-RB30 DVD/CDR DRIVE


You actually perhaps using a non blank disc at that time. Burners don't really accept non writeable Discs. Check your CD first before burning. If you are using a rewriteable disc (CD-rw) that has files, it can burn and files will be overwritten but if you're just using a CD-r with files in it, the burner will eject and will tell you to insert a blank disc.
