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

    No this does not work. It happens with all files. None are open or being used.

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.

0xc000000f error, Laptop wont boot into vista, tryed vista dvd to try recovery but wont load

That error maybe a harddrive faulty / not connected. But you may need to go into the setup/bios and change the boot order so that it boots from CD first To get into the bios when the PC boots you should see a message on the screen for a very short while which will tell you how to get into the setup/bios - usually by pressing a key - like F2, or DEL key or F10 once in the bios you then need to go through the menus at the top until you find a menu page which includes the boot order - make sure CD is first
Another test, if you have access to another PC and CD writer, would be to create a bootable CD from ubuntu - this will boot from the CD only and test that the hardware works
goto and download the ISO
full details are here
click on the image "download ubuntu"
Select a location
then begin download
Save the file onto your PC – remember where you saved it – so you can find it again to create the image bootable CD.
You do NOT copy the ISO file onto a CD - you have to use the ISO to create a bootable CD The CD creator software you have on the PC may have an option to create an image from an ISO If not - use this free program
When the UBUNTU CD boots - you will see the following options 1) Try ubunto without any change to your computer 2) Install ubuntu 3) Check CD for defects 4) Test memory 5) Boot from first hard disk.
Use OPTION 1 "Try ubunto without any change to your computer" ONLY this option this will run from the CD and not install onto your harddrive - be careful, if you do install onto the PC - you will wipe the data and software OFF your hard drive.., so repeat only use option 1
Now you should see a UBUNTU desktop This at least proves the main parts of the PC are working
With UBUNTU it may just be possible to copy any of your data onto a USB harddrive or thumbdrive

I bought a brand new set of DVD-R disc. How do I transfer photos sent to me by email onto the disc? If I try to copy the items on to it, all I get is an error message. Please help.

You should Save all the emailed photos to a folder (pre created) on your desktop or any place where you will easily find that folder. Click on the PAPER CLIP on the email and choose SAVE AS .... Then "save as" to that folder which you have created. Sometime people "insert" pictures instead of attach them to email messages. Those "inserted" ones you ..... Right click on each of them and then choose COPY.... Then go to the folder you have created earlier and (on any clean space in there" right click and choose PASTE.
Once all that is done you go into the folder which you have created in the beginning. Go to EDIT at the top of the folder's menu. Choose SELECT ALL... then go to FILE on the top menu and choose (lower down) SENT TO and then in the next window that pops up you choose CD. Then a window will appear in the right bottom corner of your computer screen that says WRITE FILES TO CD.... Click on it and then of the menu on the left you must choose WRITE TO CD NOW... (something in that line) and it will (if you have a blank CD in the drive) start recording those pictures to the CD. REMEMBER a CD can only take 70 megabytes of data. So if you choose too many pictures it may tell you the DATA is too much to copy to the CD. a DVD can take over 4,000 megabyte of data ... So maybe rather use a blank DVD to do that

I get the following error message trying to load Nancy Drew Danger on Deception Island... Incorrect path to ini file

You create a new folder, name it something like "deception" and save it. Then insert the disk and begin install, when it asks you where you'd like to install it, click browse, and install it in the folder you created previously. It won't work if you just install it in the recomended folder...

Voice Recorder-Files to CD?

Please follow the below solutions to create either an audio CD-ROM of .wav files or back-up
.wav files to a CD-ROM.
Problem: .Wav files downloaded to PC computer from the DW-90, VN Series, and DSS Files
created with DS Series recorders cannot be copied to a rewritable CD-ROM using Windows
Media Player to create an audio CD-ROM.
Explanation: These digital voice recorders create .wav files at 8kHZ, 12kHZ, or 22kHz
depending on the Quality setting. Digital Wave player software is used to download Wav files to
a PC computer from the DW or VN Series of recorders. DSS Player is used to download DSS
files from the DS Series recorders and convert them to Wav files. If Windows Media Player is
then used to copy the files to a rewritable CD-ROM to create an audio CD-ROM, the files will
not copy properly or an error message may appear. Windows Media Player can only create an
audio CD-ROM if the .wav file is 44.1kHZ, 16 bit stereo.
Solution: Follow the procedure below to convert the .wav files to 44.1 kHZ, 16 bit stereo. Then
use Windows Media Player to copy the files to a rewritable CD-ROM.
1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click Entertainment, and then click Sound Recorder.
2. On the File menu, click Open.
3. In the Open dialog box, specify the name of the audio file that you want to convert, and
then click OK. Files are usually located at C:\Program Files\Olympus\Digital Wave
Player\Message\Folder A.
4. On the File menu, click Save As.
In the Save As dialog box, click Change.
In the Attributes box, click 44.100 kHz, 16 Bit, Stereo, and then click OK.
Click Save. After you convert your files, try to copy them to a CD-ROM again.

I have certain text on a CD disk that I would like to edit. Computer tells me when I try, that it is "read only". How do I change mode to "read/write" to permit editing?

CD's are normally "read only", so the edited files cannot be saved back to the same CD.

You need to copy the documents you want to edit to your PC, edit, then save them to the PC. At some point, you may want to create a new CD with the edited files.

Put the CD in the computer, open up "My Computer". Double click on the CD (probably the "D:" drive) and right click on the file you want to edit, and choose "Copy".

Now go to "My Documents" on your computer (you can use the Start button to find it), and open that folder.

Right click again, and choose Paste.

Doubleclick the newly pasted file, and Word will allow you to edit and save it. You might want to use "Save As" instead of "Save" and give it a different name. So, Doc1.doc becomes Doc1a.doc or something similar.

There are other ways to do this - I'm giving you the most basic method.

Unable to Save - Internal Error

Use your burning software or similar ones like NTI CD/DVD maker, Nero or EZCD Creator and start new DVD DATA job. At the blank layout screen, drag your cd drive letter into the layout. The software should ask something like "do you wish to load the previous image from cd drive?" Click on yes and you should see the folders and files re-appear. Change the name of one of the folders or files and then re-burn. This should re-create the DVD data structure so you can access it properly.
