Stop the autoplay on that cd drive. All our eMachines experience extreme slowdown or BSOD when trying to read anything over 500MB from that dvd/cd drive. I've personally replaced 3 differend cd/dvd drives in 2007 on the D6405's because of the horrible quality.

Luckily this is the last time our company will ever buy anything with the word "Gateway" on it.

Good Luck

On these matter i have identified two possible cause of your problems.

1. You CD/DVD (discs) maybe damage.
2. Your CD/DVD rom was not able to read.


1. to sure that the DVD/CD rom is functional try other discs (Any discs that that is clean and no traces of damage.(if work on another discs so DVD/CD rom is good if don't work your discs is good)

if not solve the problem maybe your system had a problem. update me in case.

Camera says file error when trying to look at pics

Question; Have you tried plugging the camera in to the computer with the usb cord?...If not, leave your memory card in the camera and connect the camera via usb cord into the computer, after a few seconds orso a window will come up asking you"what do you want to do with this device" orso, just close (x) that and click on "start" on the desktop. When that opens, click on " my computer". A window named"my computer" will open up showing several devices (depending how many device you have on your computer). For instance, the hardrive is usually marked (c) disk..Look for a "device" with a name that sounds like your camera and open (double click) that. If you don't recognize any devices, then open them all, one by one, (except the hardrive (c) ) and see if there are any folders in there that seems to represent your picture file orso (mine says 100dcism or something like that, I dont know why lol), double click such file and it will open up. If you then see files named (jpg) etc then those are your pictures. If you are still not sure then double click one and it will open up, if it is a picture then your picture will come up in full view, voila,you found your pics (they are in the file you openend before yopu actually saw the picture come up)...If you still dont see your picture, just close all windows and repeat process on different "discs" ( (c), (f), (g) and any others, except (c) thats the harddrive usually....Once you've located your pictures copy or cut (hover the mouse pointer over the picture you want and right-click then select cut (this removes the file, picture in thid case, from wherever you cut it, or you can copy it(same right-click procedure) and select"copy" this will leave the pic where it was while making a copy you can "paste" anywhere you want them from the place you found them and paste them in to the folder you want ( I sometimes create a new folder on the desktop and put all my files I take from the camera in there, then later I can sort them to seperate the video's from the picture files....For your problem in particular, I would follow these procedures till I found the new files you are trying to load into your computer, when you find those then cut or copy those to wherever you like (ie "my pictures" folder. Once you have them safe there, I would go back to "my computer" and find the disc ( (e), (f), (g) where you found your missing files (pics) and then delete everything on that disc, this will delete and clean your disc, and most likey remove the straggling deleted pics of times past lol...If you know how to defrag then go to the defrag menu, but this time, while camera plugged in via usb, chose the 2 disc visible (unless you have 2 harddrives your camera will be the second one(it will have the same disc letter ( (f) or (e ) for instance as the disc you found your pics on (the disc here is actually the memory card in your camera

Why cant I write onto my blank DVD disk I have windows XP and DVD R in my DELL writable drive.Im trying to copy about 1 gig of JPEGS onto the disk. The disc is MAXELL 4.75 GB DVD R. Im using windows XP....

It doesn't matter what name or brand the disc is. All it matters that it is a writable disc. If you had aldready written previous files on that DVD disc and then it was compiled, it wont write again. When the computer requests to compile a disc, say no, otherwise you wont be able to write more data on the same disc. The same goes if you have selected a CD to burn. There are 3 ways to do so. Try copy and paste, drag and drop the file to the DVD icon or CD icon, or right click on the file to be burned and select 'Send to...' choose the DVD drive, (D:), see what happens.

Cant install windows vista getting error message in installation

The only thing I can think of for an error of this kind would be faulty media. I would suggest getting ahold of another copy of the Windows Vista Install disc. Note that it matters not what Version the Install disc is, you have the Windows Key you need to use, it will install the correct version on its own.

Copying Files unto a Disc

It depends, did they put the files on CD or DVD? as they really wont have much space on a CD to put ALL of your music files on if you have alot of songs.

Maxell cd-r 700mb- where have my pictures gone??!

use cdr's and allow multisession in your settings. Get rid of roxio and use nero 7.5 or above. Roxio tries to format cd-rws all the time if you have all features installed. bakup program keeps wanting to format cdrw. so use cdr's instead..Use the data disk option. That will copy your pics fine.
