Hi,
Open Windows Media player and click on the down pointer on the "burn" tab, it will drop down and give you an option to burn an audio CD or a data CD, just follow the instructions from therein

Hi,
With Windows XP and a CD-recordable (CD–R) or CD–rewriteable (CD-RW) drive, you can copy data to a CD as easily as you used to copy to a floppy disk.
To copy files and folders to a CD
1.
Insert a blank, writable CD into the CD recorder.
2.
Open My Computer.
3.
Click the files or folders you want to copy to the CD. To select more than one file, hold down the CTRL key while you click the files you want. Then, under File and Folder Tasks, click Copy this file,Copy this folder, or Copy the selected items.
If the files are located in My Pictures, under Picture Tasks, click Copy to CD or Copy all items to CD, and then skip to step 5.
4.
In the Copy Items dialog box, click the CD recording drive, and then click Copy.
5.
In My Computer, double–click the CD recording drive. Windows displays a temporary area where the files are held before they are copied to the CD. Verify that the files and folders that you intend to copy to the CD appear under Files Ready to be Written to the CD.
6.
Under CD Writing Tasks, click Write these files to CD. Windows displays the CD Writing Wizard. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
Notes:
• Do not copy more files to the CD than it will hold. Standard CDs hold up to 650 megabytes (MB). High–capacity CDs hold up to 850 MB.
• Be sure that you have enough disk space on your hard disk to store the temporary files that are created during the CD writing process. For a standard CD, Windows reserves up to 700 MB of the available free space. For a high–capacity CD, Windows reserves up to 1 gigabyte (GB) of the available free space.
• After you copy files or folders to the CD, it is useful to view the CD to confirm that the files are copied. For more information, click Related Topics.

Hi, I believe you don't need a driver. I don't know what kind of CD burner Software you got. If the file you are trying burn to CD or DVD the format file it might be different, that will not show nor transfer. Also if you trying to transfer files that is larger than the CD capacity, that will not transfer. Please check what kind of file and if this is a straight data format make sure what that you don't go over the CD capacity and should work. Get back to us if this information help you solve the problem or not.

I want to transfer all my word perfect files from my 2000 computer to my laptop, however, i dont have a clue as to how to begin. HELP!DIAN


there are a bunch of ways you can get this done ... depending on your computers ...
Does your computer from 2000 hook up to the internet? If so, you can e-mail yourself the files through whatever e-mail program you have. You can "attach" the files to an e-mail and download them that way. Depending on the number and size of the files, you could also copy and paste the text into e-mails ... but this would require you to copy and paste them back into documents on your laptop when you are done. You could also use a file backup service, uploading your documents there and then downloading them onto your laptop.
If you cannot hook your old computer up to the internet, then you still have some options. Do you have a CD writer on your old computer? If so, you can write all of your documents to a CD and then use that to put them onto your laptop (if your laptop has a CD drive). This would also give you a permanent backup for your files .. which is always nice. If your laptop does not have a CD drive, then you can take the CD to a local library and upload them to the internet and download them to your laptop that way. Just let the person at the information desk at the library know that this is what you are doing so they don't think you are uploading viruses or something (a lot of librarians get nervous when they see someone uploading a lot of stuff to the internet and it is easier to let them know up front than trying to defend yourself later -- I have faced this issue before ... ha ha ha)
If you don't have a CD drive on your old computer ... does it have a floppy drive? If so, you can do the same as with a CD, but using floppy disks -- newer laptops don't usually have floppy drives, so you would likely have to go to a library to upload them to the internet and download them to the laptop.
If you have a USB jack on your old computer, you can also use a USB flash drive to transfer the files -- just upload them to the USB drive, then hook the drive up to your laptop and download them. If you don't have a USB drive, you can get one for very little money (you won't need a lot of storage for word documents -- a 1 GB flash drive will be MORE than enough no matter how many documents you have)
There are other ways to get this done, but you will likely be able to use one of the above procedures to help you out. If not, please leave a comment and I'll do what I can -- please include some more information with your comment: 1. What OS do you use on each computer (Windows, Linux, Mac, Unix), 2. What drives does each computer have (CD-R, floppy drive, etc.), 3. Do you have a home network that is hooked up to both computers?

I have a Telefunken TMP-444B, 4GB MP3/4 player. The setup soft ware disc does not load to any of my computors. Where can I download it. Cannot load music onto the player


Hopefully you got a solution already, but here goes mine: I also had a Telefunken TMP-444B, 4GB MP3/4 and i found you don't need a cd (my cd also didn't work). Try connecting it to your pc via usb-cable and access it on your PC. Simply copy your Mp3 or mp4 files onto it and see it should work. Mine did. Hope yours will.
(Just take care when deleting files, because i don't know if important files are protected on your mp3/4 player). Take care anyway ;-)
Cheers

I installed a mod and didn't back up my b30.map file. Anybody know a place I can DL the original map file without my CD(the drive is broken) or reinstalling?


See if you can go to a local library or a friend's house and see if you can get the file onto a flash drive or put it on a file sharing site, I suggest Dropbox, and use it?

My 400gb freecom external hardrive won,t uncompress my files. i have recently reset my laptop back to factory settings. i dont know if this the cause of the prob but all i was ok b4. can you help please?


Hi,
Have you tried moving the files onto your laptop and uncompressing them there?

Did you have Winrar (or any other copressing software) installed on the laptop before you went back to factory settings? Are the compressed files on the external drive in the .zip or .rar (or another) file format?
