Cd error messages

This used to work but now I get these messages whenever I try to save something on my CD.

Cannot create or replace (file name) access is denied.
Make sure the file is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use.

How did this happen and what do I have to do to make this error go away and work correctly.

Thank you, Charles

Re: cd error messages

Try to check if the file you want to copy currently used by the other application. You can check you task manager by pressing together the CTRL+ALT+DEL button.

The status of the drive shows "device working properly". But whenever I insert a CD and press Play, a message saying "Please Insert a Disk" appears on the screen. Please help me out...

clean the lens, try another CD.
If neither of these work, the laser is likely gone, and you'll have to replace the drive.
Oh, lens cleaning...GENTLY wipe with a q tip with rubbing alcohol on it.

You can't. You have to install Excel onto your computers. You can then use that programme to create files, which in turn you save to your computer hard drive.

Once done you can write CD's , DVD's or more popular for file transfer a USB flash drive.

Should you wish to continue with CD's, then I suggest you use CD-RW (Re-writeable CD's)

E: drive, cd rom drive will read a cd with data, but not a new cd

CD Driver or CD Writer encounter such problems are a normal reading in data. Sometimes it does or not. To identify the real situation on your CD/CDWriter drive is very difficult to you.
Here is the answer to your problem.
# You use your CD/CDwriter drive for how many long years and now got a problem.
# The speedometer of your CD/CDWriter (lens eye) can no longer read any available CD or have data's also or even BLANK DISC.
# Use any CD CLEANER to clean up your CD/CDWriter Drive to remove the dust inside.

Good luck!

My CD shows empty when i finished copying?

I am going to assume that you have a PC running Microsoft Windows OS.

Have you ever tried to play an MP3 file stored on the computer's disk. For example, download the following: Example , by right-clicking that link and selecting to save it to your desktop. Then go to your desktop and double-click it. If it plays, note which application runs it.

If it doesn't, then you may want to install one of dozens of music players you can download and use for free. For example: Windows Media Player or iTunes.

Even if playing a file from your desktop works, it might be good to install a fresh copy of the latest of one of these players.

Next, I would have you load your CD. Note what happens carefully. It may be different once you install a new player. If a dialog pops up and offers to play the CD, then note the name of that application. However, typically they will not offer to play a disk of MP3s because that should be a data disk and not an Audio CD. Tell me how that CD was created. In any case, when that dialog comes up, instead of choosing to play the CD, choose to Explore or Browse. Then copy the files you find on it to your desktop. Now try to double click those files and see if they play. Are they MP3 files? If they are not MP3s, then you probably have an Audio CD and is not well written or your drive is "tired of life." Try another Audio CD that is a commercial product and see if that plays. If so, blame the CD. If it doesn't, then blame the drive. You may be able to update the driver for your drive, but then we are getting much deeper into it than your basic question.
