My Vista Home Premium Disc comes up as a blank DvD

I've been having this problem, that when I insert my Vista Home Premium CD, it comes up in the finder as a blank DvD. Anyone have any solution or thoughts about this? I've been wanting to run Boot Camp for some time now.

Try using any other DVD disc in the drive, if other DVD discs are working normally then the issue may be with the reading speed supported by the drive.

If the Vista DVD disc is burnt at higher speed than that supported by the DVD drive then drive reads as blank disc.

So, you may check the maximum read speed supported by the drive and the speed the disc is written.

Furthermore, check if the disc doesn't have any smudges or scratches.

If your CD-writer previously work, and now does not work, i.e., cannot "read" a "blank" disk, it's time to spend $40 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer drive.

Instaling windows 7 in vaio laptop have vista orginal windows how solving the problem in instaling windows 7?


if your system came with vista originally the issue would be is you would need to know what version of vista you have on your system, the version makes the difference if you have vista home premium then your windows 7 should be a win7 Home premium as well, because if you are upgrading vista using your win7 disc and your windows version are different for example you have vista Home premium and your win7 is win7 ultimate and you do an upgrade the problem will be your product key,

but if you have a retail version of win7 and you are installing it on your laptop Vaio insert the disc in the DVD-drive win7 needs a DVD reader to be able to install win7 if you have a cd-rom it wont work, then turn the laptop off power it back up keep on tapping f12 it should bring you a boot menu, select ODD or which ever is your dvd drive then press enter then enter again if it says on the screen press any key to boot to CD, this should begin win7 installation on the screen saying windows is loading files the so on ans so fort ^_^ this will over write everything in vista but in win7 it will still create a windows.old folder from vista only from the my documents folder my picture and my music and my video and desktop Items but remember application icons will not work on win7 you may need to reinstall the program again for it to work on win7 and yeah make sure that you choose custom/advance in the selection screen do no select upgrade unless you vista and win7 are the same version eg. Vista Home premium / Win7 Home premium ^_^

Every time I need to do a back up, I'm told to insert blank disc, then I'm told "Disc needs formatting" but the formatting always fails, why?


Go to Start-->Control Panel-->Backup & Restore

Check Backup Destination. it should be CD Drive here. If it is CD Drive, then it will ask for inserting "Bannk Cd". I suggest you to insert new Bank CD/DVD to avoid formatting message. Also, if data is huge, it can not be write on CD/DVD.

I would suggest you to buy any external USB hardrive and set it as a BACKUP Path.

CD and DVD use different lasers. You appear to have a bad or out of adjustment laser. Replace the drive.

Transfering my video tapes to DVD


A couple of quick observations: -If you have two or more optical drives you could be inserting the disk in the wrong one. -You may have just misspoke when you said *insert into the DVD/CD burner drive a CD-R disc* but just to make sure you need to be inserting a blank DVD disk and not a blank CD. No offence intended, especially since I?ve made both of these mistakes in the past myself :)
