My cd drive does not recognise cds


Okay. First of all is it a cd drive in your computer as opposed to a DVD drive? If you put a dvd into a cd drive it cannot recognize the dvd. A dvd drive can recognize a cd, but a cd drive cannot recognise a dvd.

Does your computer actually recognize the drive as being present?
If the drive isn't recognized by the computer try:

power off the laptop
Physically remove the cd or dvd drive
power -up the laptop without the cd/dvd drive
power off the latop and refit the dvd/cd drive
power it up again and see if the drive is
recognized

If the drive IS recognized by the laptop but won't play any disk it's probably the drive itself at fault. You can try gently cleaning the inside of the drive - the optic that reads the disk. However, the usual cause is failure of that optic which read the disk information. It cannot be repaired.

The alternative to fitting a new drive is to buy a portable dvd drive. They connect via a usb cable. Have a look on Ebay

Tip

Disk drive may be failing or my disk won't boot


Many times before a hard drive goes completely bad there are tell tale signs. If you can recognize them, there is a good chance that the data on the drive can be saved. The window of time in which action will be useful is quite small. Other than trying to fix the problem do not use the failing computer disk as you can just make the problem worse. <br /> What are the signs to look out for? While there are few surefire signs of impending disk failure there are some warning signals that give us the hint. Watch out for: disappearing files, very long wait while accessing files, files/folders whose contents appear to be strangely scrambled, reoccurring error messages while moving/copying/deleting/creating files, and strange but frequent crashes of your OS. If your computer will not boot saying that it cannot find the boot disk or other messages similar, the boot sector may be corrupt. <br /> Another telltale sign is any loud, low, irregular, clicking, or grinding sound which is emitted from the drive. This is the worst problem as your data and the disk are almost gone. <br /> What to do? Download on a friends computer and create a bootable CD from one of these manufactures:<a href="http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=seatooldreg&vgnextoid=480bd20cacdec010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD"> Seatools</a> from Seagate,<span> the <span><a href="http://support.wdc.com/download/dlg/Diag504fCD.iso">Data Lifeguard tools</a></span> from Western Digital or <a href="http://www.hitachigst.com/support/downloads/">Drive Fitness Tool</a> from Hitachi.</span> <br /> <ul> <li>You must use a CD burning program (such as Nero Burning Rom or EZ-CD Creator) to burn a CD from the .ISO image.</li></ul> <br /> Using the CD, boot the problem system. Make sure the BIOS is set to boot from the CD drive first, not the hard disk. Follow the manufactures instructions to test your disk. Do not let the program write all zeros to the disk or format the disk as you will loose all your data. <br /> With luck, the program will repair any corrupt indexes. <br /> Remove the CD and attempt to do a normal boot. If you can then boot into your desktop, immediately backup any data as the fix may be short lived. <br /> If you don't have a CD drive, then you'll need to try using a bootable USB which is another topic.

How to download a cd from a portable device into mac


Do you mean "how to burn files from a portable device to the mac" instead? You will need burning software like Nero or other software that is compatible with your mac. The process includes copying the files from the portable device to your mac hard drive then use burning software to burn the files to a dvd or cd disk. I don't know about mac but with a pc, you simple drag and drop the files from the portable device to your hard drive using Windows Explorer.

My Windows 7 cannot recognize my Sata/usb connector


USB hard drive is a portable external storage device that works just like a conventional hard drive. The device is simply plugged into a USB port on your computer as you would connect a flash drive. Unlike a flash drive, however, a USB hard drive can store a much larger amount of data. If your computer will not recognize your USB hard drive, you can try troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.

Plug one end of the USB cable into the port on your hard drive and plug the other end into the USB port of your computer. Ensure that both ends of the cable are connected securely. Open "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (Windows Vista/7). The USB device should be listed as "removable disk" once it is plugged into the computer. If it is not listed among the available drives on your computer, proceed to the next step. Ensure that the data cable is working properly. Try another USB cable if you have one available. Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer as they may interfere with the operating system detecting the external hard drive. Reboot the computer if the USB hard drive is still not recognized. Plug the USB cable into another USB port and check to see if the device is detected. If you are using a USB hub, remove the device and plug the external hard drive directly into a USB port. If the computer still fails to recognize the device, the external hard drive itself may be experiencing a hardware problem. Check the status of the hard drive in the "Device Manager" window. Under Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and select "Device Manager." For Windows Vista and Windows 7, click the "Windows" button in the lower left corner of the screen, then type "Computer Management" in the search bar and press "Enter." Select "Device Manager" in the "Computer Management" window. In the Device Manager window, click the "+" sign that appears beside "Disk Drives." If the external drive is not listed, click "Other Devices" in the Device Manager window and see if an "Unknown Device" appears. The external hard drive may have been detected but the device is not working properly. If it is still under warranty, take the device to the computer store where it was purchased to have it repaired or replaced. Hope this helps.

My pen 4gb pendrive is working very slow it works 800kbps


When you plug in your USB pendrive into your computer and you get a message "This device can perform faster if connected to a high speed USB2 port".
This means your computer supports USB1 which is much slower than USB2 and the latest USB3.
There may be a BIOS upgrade to configure your computer to support USB2.

How to retrieve a file ? (shift delete)


If your motherboard or computer has crashed and you need to retrieve data you can remove the hard drive and hook it up to a portable USB hard drive adapter. Available most computer stores. Set the hard drive to Primary if it is ATA. Hook it up to the hard drive and plug the USB into a working computer. Open "MY Computer" and you will see the new drive on the list. You can now access the files on the drive just they were on a floppy or CD.

What is the best way to transfer data from my old computer to this one?


The most popular way to transfer files is to burn them to a cd. For this you would need a cd burner and a couple of blank cds. Not only are you moving the files but by burning them to a cd, you are also archiving them. You'll be thankful that you did when something goes wrong with your computer. If you have a cd burner that is compatible with cd-rw media, then you would be able to just use one cd to transfer. A cd-rw disk offers the option to erase the cd and then rewrite something else to it. Depending on the speed of your cd burner, this could be a quick or a timely process. It may be very repetitive if you have a lot of data to transfer An excellent way to transfer a couple of files from computer to computer is to transfer with a thumb drive. A thumb drive is a small hard drive that can hold anywhere between 16mb to 1 full gig. It is normally a plug and play device that you would plug into a USB port. It would show up as a removable drive in My Computer on Windows or if you a Mac user, it would show up on your desktop. If you have an older computer, you may have to install drivers for your USB ports or software for the device to be recognized. Please check your thumb drive manual for more information on the setup for different systems. If you're not afraid to open the computer up, you could just take your old hard drive and hook it up as a secondary or slave drive. This would allow you to transfer the files from hard drive to hard drive, within your computer. Before doing anything to your computer, please consult your computer manual
or an experienced computer professional . Never open your computer up while it is still plugged in.

Won't function


Firstly it sounds as if the drivers aren't loading properly, right click on your drive (right click my computer> properties> hardware> device manager). Look for your external drive, rightclick and click update driver and force it to look in your cd for driver files. Secondly make sure you are connecting to a USB2 port, as it may not recognise the hardrive.
