Well firstly,

you telling me that you took out the CD while it was in major use (data transfer onto computer) triggered A LOT of issues; like the ones you have now.


Solution(s):

- Run Defragmenter (this WILL help if you have a lot of fragmented files; incomplete CD copying may be a part of it too)

- Check your devices; they may have been altered (Go to right click My Computer --> Manage --> Device Manager --> find the devices that are acting up)

- Run Disk Clean up (The files from the CD that were not successfully copied may have left some large temporary files on your Hard drive)

- Check your Sound drivers and Sound settings




Hope I helped

Instructions on how to eject a cd from vostro 1510 ? william@kanigan.com


You can eject a CD in two ways!
1 Simply pressing the button on the right edge of CD drive and drive opens by sliding out
2. Clicking on my computer which shows all the drives C: D: E: etc. C: is hard drive so can not be ejected. Right click on the D or E where ever the CD is and choose eject! That will open the CD drive!
Good luck!

Tip

CD Insert Without pushing a button!


This will not work with a Laptop drive unless it is the slot loading type.
We already have 'Eject' when we right click the CD/DVD drive from (My Computer), which ejects the drive tray. But to insert the tray inside,we have to manually push the insert button on CD/DVD drive.
Another way most PC owners insert that CD tray is by pushing the tray itself. I'm sure nobody mentioned this when you got that PC, but that push to insert feature (Also called the bump feed) is not really safe to use over time. If you happen to say, push too hard because you are in a hurry, the gear which pulls your CD tray in can skip a tooth, making that CD or DVD open and close all by itself, or even worse, making it stay locked tight forever.

Here is a trick that allows you to insert the drive tray without actually touching that button. Simply by putting the 'Insert' sub-context(as shown in above figure) menu on the CD/DVD drives Context menu. For this to happen, we need to use a dll file from our windowssystem32 folder.

First of all, download this file CDEject.zip and extract it. There will be two files CDeject.dll and CDeject.reg. Now follow the step by step procedures.

1. CDeject.dll -> copy this file to X:windowssystem32 folder (here X is your corresponding drive letter, usually it's drive C:)

2. CDeject.reg -> execute it. It shows a warning message, accept that and click OK.

Now try right clicking your CD or DVD drive and click eject, then right click again and choose insert.

Amazingly cool isn't it?

So far I haven't found a way to make the CD hop in the tray all by itself, but I am still hopeful.

And you thought you couldn't program!

Have fun with that!

I have several files on the computer which I would like to move to a CD....i.e. pictures, or documents. I am doing something wrong because it does not allow me to copy a file to a CD???? probably my lack...


You have to burn the files to a CD, if you have Windows XP or Vista it should do this for you, the reason you are getting the error is because unlike the hard drive, the CD is not a read / write device (ie once you copy files there they are there forever, unless you are using a re-recordable cd)
You must have a CD drive that is capable of recording data, this will be a CDRW or a DVDRW drive, most computers now have these, but if yours is only a DVDRom or a CDROM, you will not be able to copy.

To burn files to disc, Put a CD in the drive
Then get all the files you want to copy and put them in a folder (saves time)
Now click on the CD drive icon in MY computer (right click and open)
Drag the contents of the folder you created onto the cd drive which you have opened
You may get asked to format the disc, this is normal (prepare the disc)
You will then see the files you have added (says "files ready to be burned to disc")
Right mouse click on the empty space in the area where the files have been added and a menu will come up, with the command "burn to disc"
Once complete the disc will eject and you need to press finish

You can add about 700MB of files onto each CD

Trying to install my copy of word on netbook without cd


  • Insert a blank memory stick or card into a USB port of a computer that has a CD drive.
  • Place your Microsoft Word software CD into the CD drive of your computer.
  • Hold down the "Shift" key as you close the CD drive. This will prevent the CD from automatically installing Microsoft Word on the computer.
  • Open the CD drive. The files that are on the CD will appear in a window. Click on the first file that appears. Then hold down the "Shift" key and click on the last file so that you select all of the files.
  • Release the "Shift" key. Then hover your mouse over any file and right-click. Select the "Copy" option from the context menu.
  • Open the memory stick. Hover your mouse over the memory stick window and right-click. Select the "Paste" option to copy the files onto your memory stick. Close the memory stick and right-click on the memory stick icon with your mouse. Select the "Eject" choice from the menu to safely remove the memory stick.
  • Insert thememory stick into the USB slot of your netbook.
  • Open the memory stick . The top of the screen should have an Setup.exe icon. Double-click on this file to begin the process of installing Microsoft Word.

    Slow computer


    If your computer is made after 2006 then it is time for factory restore. Back up all files on disk or something. Then do a factory reset. This would take roughly 2 to 3 hours and make sure the laptop don't run out battery so keep it plugged in. As the laptop boots up hit F2 then after that windows pop up hit the advanced version (F8). Choose fix my computer and choose the factory or out of the box restore.

    How to download from computer to memory stick


    Plug your memory stick into the USB slot on the computer. If this is the first time that particular memory stick is being placed into the machine, it will take a few seconds to find the drivers and install it.
    Once this is completed, you want to open "My Computer" and look for the Removable Device that will normally have a drive letter of (F:) for example. When you have this window open, open another window, this time with the location of the information you want save on your memory. Once this is found you can transfer them by right clicking on each of the files you want sent to the memory stick and click "send to .....and send it to the removable device. If you want to transfer files in bulk, you can simply drag the files you want into the window you already have open with the removable disk. Practice it and it will become like second nature to you.
    Hope this helped...

    Renault cabasse auditorium 6 CD changer won't reject cds. Have followed the instructions in manual but simply shows ERR-CD1. Sounds as if it is trying to eject but nothing then happens.


    I left it for 24 hours and tried to eject the disks again. It took a while churning itself, but eventually the 1st disk was ejected followed by the 2nd. I think it is like a slow computer. One has to be patient and it works: try to rush it and it won't.

    The DVD tray doesnt eject


    either it is the ribbon wire, the motor that ejects the tray or the belt that connect the tray and motor is the problem. In case the above three are fine, replace the drive as the sparking might kill your moterboard.

    PC memory issues


    If you're working with photo files, there's probably no piece of hardware that will speed up the process more than lots of RAM. Anything beyond 128MB will dramatically streamline your workflow. Image-processing programs like HP Image Zone need much more RAM to work efficiently with large files. But the slow speed may be due to another culprit: fragmented hard drive files. If you have problems with speed when opening or closing a file, perhaps your image data is scattered all over your drive. The result? Your hard drive is spending all its time and energy gathering the data to feed your applications. Defragmenting the drive is the simple solution to tidying up your files. If the files aren't fragmented and more RAM doesn't do the trick, your hard drive may just be slow. Consider replacing it or adding a second, faster one to your system.
