'Problem Copying' when burning files to DVD-R

So here's the problem: I put my disk into the drive, go into the drive folder, try to copy a file to it, and then get told there's a problem copying the file. It doesn't seem to realize it's an open disk in the drive.

When using Freakyburn, it also doesn't recognize that there's a DVD-R in the drive, telling me I can upload a max of 700 megs.

I've tried 2 brands of DVD and a variety of each. Help?

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.

I'm trying to burn a music CD on my new HP computer and can't get the source disk to download to my hard drive. I'm an old dude and did print out the HP instruction sheet-still confused.

Hello rhughes612,

You may try burn by CD to CD burn but if you want to select files that you want to burn, you have to ripped the music from the Music CD by using Window Media Player 10 or higher. Or try using software that ripped music from CD.

This is the instruction of CD to CD:

1. Insert the source disk
2. Then hit burn or copy to CD on your HP CD & DVD burner software or application.
Then it will be temporarily copied to the hard drive.
3. after it finishes copying the source disk, you will be ask to insert a blank CD then hit continue or OK

Please reply or respond if this doesn't work so that I could provide you another solution and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

How do i copy a disk

Before you Begin Make sure there is no program runing that has opened any file on the original disk. You cannot run the Disk Copy procedure if any file on the original or destination disks is in use by any program. For example, if you were editing a document in MS Word, saving to the disk in Drive A, and now want to copy it to another disk: FIRST quit the MS Word program, then execute the Disk Copy procedure. Caveat LectorThis Disk Copy procedure will make an exact copy of the original disk on the copy disk. It will completely overwrite the copy disk, replacing anything on it with the contents of the original (source) disk. That means that if there are any files on the copy (destination) disk before you begin, those files will be destroyed. You might want to take a look at the destination disk before beginning to be sure there's nothing on it you want to save. -------- Copying a Disk
  1. Double-Click on the My Computer icon on the Desktop. The My Computer window will open.
  2. In the My Computer Window, click once (not the usual double-click!) to select the icon for 31/2 Floppy A:
  3. Click on the File menu and select Copy Disk. The Copy Disk window will open onscreen.
  4. In the Copy Disk window you will see the option:Copy from 3 1/2 Floppy (A:) to 3 1/2 Floppy (A:)Click on the Start button.
  5. A new window will open prompting you to Insert the disk you want to copy from (source disk). Insert the disk and then click on the OK button. The program will begin "reading" the files from this original (source) disk. You can watch the progress in the little "progress bar" in the Copy Disk window.
  6. Once the original disk has been read into memory you'll be prompted toInsert the disk you want to copy to (destination disk)Now remove the original (source) disk from the drive and insert the copy (destination) disk into the drive. The click the OKbutton. You can watch the progress as the computer "writes" to the copy (destination) disk in the Progress bar in the Copy Disk window.
  7. When the copy is completed you'll see a new, small window popup that will report:The copy completed successfullyNow remove that copy (destination) disk. You are finished!
------- This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

If your C: drive (primary storage drive) is to full, it can EXTREAMLY hamper all computer activities. Copying/Burning/Downloading being the most effected. Try deleting some unnecessary files.

I hope this helps!

DVD+RW Not recognized as a writable drive

There could be a few things going wrong here, firstly when you send a file using Windows poor inbuilt writing programme, i think you need to use a re writable disc, although i could be wrong, but thats worth a try. Also go to My computer, right click on your dvd drive and go to properties, then along the top row of tabs, the end one should say 'Recording', click on the tab and make sue that 'Enable CD recording on this drive' is ticked, and just below make sure that the dvd you use is showing in the drop down window. Finally if you still have trouble, my advice would be to use a dedicated programme for writing to cd and dvd for example Nero burning Rom or Nero 7 being the later version. In this nero you use your drive as a 'floppy type' drive, where you right click on file and send to and it writes straight to the disk and also enables you to change the file or delete, unlike windows programme.
