It depends on the system's settings. By default most computers will read a CD/DVD as soon as it is placed in the CD/DVD drive.
If this setting has been changed then open your file manager (Windows Explorer not Internet Explorer) and navigate to the drive (Usually Drive D)
If this fails then your drive may be damaged,
You can check this. For Windows right click on My Computer, choose Properties then Device manage. Find the entries for CD/DVD drives. If you see an ! or ? alongside the Drive name then their is a physical problem with that drive. Right click on the drive and choose Uninstall. Restart your computer. If all is ok Windows will reinstal the drive. If it doesn't then assume the drive needs replacing.

I already wrote disc but how to overwrite a disc


On a CD-R, if you don't finalize or write protect the disk, can you overwrite a file?

Or in overwriting are you simply creating a second file of the same name in the TOC/directory and deleting the name, only, of the first file


You can add more data if there is space on the DVD+R, but you can't overwrite it.

You see, when a disc is burned, little microscopic ridges are put onto the disc. This is your data.

You cannot overwrite this data.

It's kind of like trying to use a permanent marker on the same spot of paper twice.

How to make CD Rom run as BOOT? please key in


Go into the BIOS and change the boot startup device order. Make the CD the first boot device and the hard disk the second boot device.
If you do not wish to change the BIOS you may select the CD drive as an alternate boot device by pressing F10 or F!2 as the laptop boots up to bring up a list of devices to want to boot from, select the CD drive and the follow the screen prompt.

http://www.4shared.com/file/10UH3hc2/boot-cd-iso.html
it's a zip file...use winzip to unzip it to Desktop....the folder has 2 files...first read the Readme file...
it has all the inst to how to use it....
insert a blank CD in the CD drive...
click the file ISO-Burner
leave the default value there....the "Boot-Disk" is auto selected....just click Burn ISO
Once done...insert this CD in the PC that need to be wiped clean....
ensure that the boot seq in the BIOS is set to CDROM as the 1st boot device...
let it boot and let the killdisk utility begin....
follow on screen instructions there.... and wipe the disk....
time taken for a 80GB disk is aprox 4 hrs...so calculate your time...if your disk is partitioned you need to run it for each partition....

I put in a disc and no options are coming up on the screen and the disc is not reading burning nor burning cd


Try and access the CD-ROM drive from My Coputer folder. If the CD can be read, that means that auto run is disabled on your system. If still you cann the read the CD, then there is a problem with your CD-ROM drive. Try cleaning the CD-ROM drive lens with the appropriate cleaning kit.

Blank Disk Show Problems


This is normal. A blank DVD has no filesystem on it, so the OS can't give you any other answer.

Once you burn a filesystem on the DVD, you should see the appropriate space value in Properties.

NEED TO READ AND WRITE TO SAME CD WITH 2 DIFFERENT COMPUTERS.


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)

On my dell inspiron 5160, I can play cd & dvd, & record cd but can not record on blank dvd, Roxio says drive is empty and no space?? I have fixed graphics card and reinstalled xp, hope you can help...


Are you sure it is a DVD writer, the specs for this laptop has a number of different drives one of which is a DVD/CD combi drive meaning it can read and write CD's but only read/plays DVD's.
Check the drive fascia if it says DVD-rom then it only reads them.

It can't read or burn any data on any empty disks (CD-Rom/DVD)! but it can read any other written disks like: programs , Movies , audio disks , data disks just when I put a blank or Empty disk it seems...


Some CD burners are either "+" or "-" or both "+ -".

That said you will have to check what type of burner you have. Example, you cannot stick a "+" blank cd into a "-" burner, and visa versa.

However, if your cd burner can read and burn both types, you should be okay.

Only reads some disks.


Hi, if the PC's are older than 3 years or the cdrom drives are near it's end of life, it will make problems to read some CDR's. If you recorded the CD's you are trying to read, try recording at less than 4X speed.
Sometimes, even "original" or "silver" CD's will make problems because they are not recorded correctly at the factory.
If the problem is with a CDRW drive, it applies the same theory, the recording laser is damaged or used up. It will not record a legible CD or DVD even if the software says that the record operation ended successfully.
