I have the 2010 academic version of peachtree complete and when i put the disc in the cd-rom nothing happens. You can here the disc spinning and can my pc is trying to read the disc but then the spinning...

You computer probably has Autoplay turned off for security.
-Click the start button on the lower left and click Computer when it appears near the middle of the right column. -Look for one of the drives labeled CD or DVD, probably the D drive. Righ-click it's icon. -From the list choose Autoplay.
If Autoplay is not an option double-click on the CD or DVD drive. Look for an application called Setup and double-click it to begin setup.

How do I format a DVD+RW disc?

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Here are the instructions for formatting DVD+RW discs.

  • Locate the CD-ROM drive door on your computer. The location of the drive depends on the computer you have. You will see a small rectangular button on the door.

  • Press the button and the drive door should slightly open. Lightly pull the door open and insert the blank DVD-RW disc into the drive. Close the drive door and wait for the computer to detect the disc, which will trigger an "Auto Play" screen to flash on the desktop's taskbar. The screen will prompt you to choose an action you'd like to perform for the disc.

  • Click "Burn Files to Disc: Using Windows." This link will redirect you to your Windows Explorer disc burning application. You will be prompted to enter a title for the disc.

  • Enter the title of your choice in the form and click "Next." The last screen will ask if you'd like to continue with the formatting; click "Yes" to continue. The "Elapsed Time" screen will appear indicating how long the process will take. When the process is complete, another screen will automatically appear indicating the formatting process is complete.

  • Click "OK" to continue. Your Windows Explorer panel will appear. In the upper-left corner of the panel, you will see a horizontal menu bar with different options for the disc. Now your disc is formatted and you can begin burning files to your disc.

    Have a nice Day,

    CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?

    CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

    If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
    That should solve your problem

    I am trying to install windows service pack 1. I keep getting an error code: 0x00F0826. Can you tell me what this means and how to fix it? I am running windows vista basic. 32-bit. Thanks.

    if there error appeared while windows copying files then disc OS or the DVD ROM might be faulty. Try to test first the ODD if it is faulty. Use the drivers and utilities cd from dell to test the DVD ROM. If DVD ROM reads fine the drivers disc then try the OS disc to a different computer if it can load vista files. if not the OS disc has the problem. If no issues with OS disc and DVD Rom then it might be the HDD.

    Cannot get CD-ROM to work,to come up on screen.

    Ok with that you need to insert the disc and then go into the my computer section of your computer and then in the CD rom drive you should see the disc and you will click on it to start the process. However if that does not work then your CD rom drive is defective and you need to purchase a new one.

    DVD-ROM drive not working

    Hi there.
    It sounds like the lens on F drive has gone as i cannot read disks, there is nothing you can do about this once the lens has give up.
    The best thing you can do now is remove it from the desktop and just carry on using the DVD/RW as this is the only optical drive you need because it reads and writes DVD's and CD's.

    Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

    My Computer Wont Read DvD's or CDs!

    Is the CD drive display in my computer? yes

    then clean up your CD/DVD rom for there is dust in it, specially on the lazer lens that let the rom read the CD/DVD.

    If no, then; Fix some cable connection towards your CD/DVD rom for it was lessen.

    If not fix the problem verify the disc if it is readble by your Rom. Please try another disc in your Rom.

    if same happen, then maybe its time for a new CD/DVD ROM.

    one last try:

    try your new purcahse disc in another computer that is compatible with your disc.

    hope this help, melnavz
