Re: my cd/dvd player dont work right

If your cd/dvd player doesnt work right after installing a Epson cx4800 model printer on your computer, specifically with the Vista OS, its due to reported issues with the cx4800 printer drivers conflicting with drivers tied to your cd player..supposedly.

Best advice is to uninstall the cx4800 software/drivers and see if your cd/dvd player works right. once confirmed it does, then try to get the windows os to automatically detect and install the cx4800 printer without using the printer drivers that came with the printer.

If after uninstall the printer drivers and your cd/dvd player still doesnt work properly....need likely to reinstall the cd/dvd drivers ..but that can be another ugly problem as for finding the right ones to reinstall.

I am new to the computer world & need some help ? How do i transfer my pictures from my computer to a disc ? Thanks

This is for windows 7:
Click the Burn button.
  1. Open your Pictures library from the Start menu and select your desired photos.
  2. Select the photos and folders you want to copy by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking their icons. Or, to select all the photos within a folder, press Ctrl+A.
  3. Need to select photos from multiple folders? Don't select any photos or folders in this step. Proceed with the rest of the burn process and Windows 7 will open an empty window showing the newly inserted disc's contents: nothing. Drag and drop the photos you want to burn into that window. When you're ready, go back to the Pictures Library and click Burn.

  4. Insert a blank CD or DVD into your writable disc drive.

  5. Decide how you want to use the disc:

    1. Like a USB flash drive:

    2. Choose this option when you intend for other PCs to read the disc. Windows 7 treats the disc much like a folder, letting you copy additional photos to the disc later.
    3. With a CD/DVD player: Choose this option to create discs that play on CD and DVD players attached to TVs. Don't choose this unless you plan to view the disc on a TV. You can't add any images to this disc later, so be sure to get them all selected the first time.

  6. Type a name for your disc and click Next.

  7. Click the Burn or Burn to Disc button again, if necessary.

Have movies on my harddrive but whn I try to burn them they wont play in the DVD player

- It might be that your DVD does not have a compatible video codec

- you actually invest on video codec which converts any video file to .VOB

- There is a software that converts any video file format (example *.avi, *.mp4, *.mpg ) to .VOB

- This should be taken as personal use because we do have laws againts anti piracy (sorry, just a friendly advice)

It is running very slow . It can't read a little bit old cd\ dvd. When a cd/dvd is inserted system has encounted a problem amd hang up for several minutes .............. and it can't burn disc...

This sounds like a simple problem to fix. You need to get a cd/dvd cleaner disk and place it in the drive. Allow the disk to perform as indicated by the audio instructions included on the disk. All modern lens cleaning disks have the audio instructions that play as the disk is in the machine, so that the customer knows what to do, and in what order to do it in.

After running the disk, get a NEW blank cd, and try to burn some files onto it. If it works right, then that was all that was wrong, if not, then you have corrupted firmware, which is also a relatively easy procedure to fix. Just go to the drive manufacturers website and download the latest firmware fore your drive.

New Acer 5810T laptop but DVD & CD's do not work, What settings do I need ? Any help will be appreciated. Gordon Ball

You shouldn't need anything special. Do you see the drive in My Computer? (Or "Computer" if you're using Windows 7.)
Try different things. Try a known good music CD, a known good data CD, not blanks, not DVDs. Can you play or read data from them? If not, you need to take it back to wherever you bought it and have them look at it.
Are you certain the drive is a DVD drive? If you can read data or music from CD's and not from DVD's then the drive is fine, and all you need is the software to play DVD's. There should be a disc in the original packaging.
It sounds like you can't do any of these things. If that's the case, I'd definitely bring it back and have them check it or get a new one.

Hope this helps you! Please leave a rating if so!

It will not play sound when playing a DVD. The PC sound card does work. I can play video off the internet for example YOUTUBE and I have sound

It's possible that the your computer's codec is not installed. This website is pretty informational. Try to verify the audio control of your DVD player if it's on mute or not.

I had the computer reset to factory settings and cannot play CD's now. I get a message that says "You don't have a disc drive capable of playing DVD's or CD's. See less

Do you see the CDrom drive from the Device Manager? Right click on My Computer and click Manage. Click Device Manager and on the right panel, expand the DVD/CDROM drives. Check if your cdrom is on the list. If you can see it, try to right click that and Update the driver. You will need to have the installation disk for your cdrom.

If you dont have an installation disk, try to right click it and choose uninstall the drive. Next, you reboot the computer. The system should rediscover the drive.

If this does not work, please let me know.

Firstly make sure that the print is within the printable area of the disc. Any ink on the hub or outside edge will never dry. Check the inner/outer diameter setting in the print CD program.

Epson recommend that he discs are left to dry for 24 hours before use but in my experience they are dry in an hour or so although I am in Spain & it's 33C right now!!

What is the source of the images you are printing, perhaps lower the resolution of the image?

You can try changing the default printer settings "media type" from "CD/DVD" to "CD/DVD Premium Surface".

You can try playing with the brightness setting under the printer options advanced menu.

Lastly Epson advise trying different brands of disc until you find one that works!!

Let me know how it works out.

Best regards.
