You will need to download the latest driver for your CD/DVD Player.
You can do this from device manager.
THen you can go to your F: Drive, click properties and make sure it is write enabled.

You can also use Media player to transfer to disc.

CDROM CANNOT READ MY ZUMA DELUXE CD. ERROR IS UNKNOW FILE TYPE.


I would say that windows is missing the codecs to play your cd. You can get the codecs by running windows update by right clicking on computer and then properties. and then click on the windows update and click get updates now.

An easier solution would be to download vlc player. It will play any file and cd or dvd. just google for vlc media player and download it and open the cd with VLC

Hi, I have a Toshiba laptop with Windows XP that was never connected to the internet. After I recently created a network, I kept getting a message asking me to install updates, as many were never installed...


This may be a system file that is being updated and has either become damaged or deleted. Try going to command prompt (hit start - run and type cmd then press enter) and enter the following command:
sfc /scannow
This is the System File Checker and it may fix the problem.

DVD-Rom will read the movie but won't write (burn) it. Bad block of memry


>> The Device has a bad block of memory, which Windows attempted to read.

Which CD/DVD disk are you trying to _read_ ?
Can you read this disk in a different computer ?
If not, then the disk is scratched or greasy or otherwise damaged.

Does the error occur when you try to start to _write_ ?
If so, the "blank" CD/DVD media may not be compatible with your hardware.
Find a "writable" disk from a different manufacturer, and try to write to it.
If that works, then you may need to do a "firmware-upgrade" on your CD/DVD-writer, to make it compatible with newer "blank" media disks.

Roxio creator 2009 burning issues


Here's a few things you can try:

1.) Download Service Pack 3 for Creator 2009. This updates the software and is recommended.

http://www.roxio.com/enu/support/c2009/software_updates.html

2.) Update your CD/DVD burner drives. This can be done by going to the manufacturers website and checking for updates. (Ex: If you purchased your computer from Dell and it came with a built in burner, you'd check Dell.com for updates.)

3.) Update the PX Engine. This is Roxio software that communicates with the CD/DVD burner drives.

4.) If all else fails, try visiting this KB article:

"0 not found" Error message when using DVD player on laptop


This is generally an indication that the DVD end of the drive is going out. First try a different or updated DVD decoding software. It could just be a simple glitch with the software, or that the software is outdated.

Not an Audio CD/Format Unsupported


Clean the CD and try again. Also, if DVD displays "not supported", call Bose and ask to recieve an update disc. These updates are released every 6 months. Document your remote control settings before loading the update as they may be erased by the update and will require re-entering settings after the update.
