How to open the disk drive


Open the Computer folder in Start Menu, select the DVD Rom Icon, right click, select Eject. If a DVD or CD has exploded inside remove DVD Rom and open the DVD case. Sometimes if you open the front case door cover and access the DVD/CD drive door you will see a tiny hole to insert a open paper clip that will open the tray.

The computer is detecting the CD rom but the cd rom is not detecting or reading any CDs


The laser is probably burned out or the spindle motor isn't turning.
With the price of these units, I'd just replace it.
There's not much you can do to fix either problem anyway.
A CD ROM (hard to find, but some places still carry them) can be had for $5 or $10.
For just a bit more, you could get a DVD burner.

How do I get a cd rom to download to my computer from my GR-D290 camcord


Remove the CD disc from the camcorder and put in the CD drive on the computer. A windows may open automatically to show you the conmtents of the CD.

If it does not open automatically:
1. Use Windows explorer ... open "My Computer"
2. The CD will probably be listed as Drive D:"
3. Double-click (open) the Drive and each folder that appears on the drive.
4. The viseos will be listed...
5. you can copy (or "drag") these to a folder or your desktop.

Please reply with a comment if you need more information about this...

Brand new computer and i did not install the adobe it came with the computer Vista basic and i get the 1311 error message when i try to run adobe computer 1 day old !


no big problm if u comp is new r old...

When you try to install Adobe Acrobat 6, 7, 8, or 3D on Windows, the installer returns the error message "Error [1311, 1335 or 2350]. Source file not found: [drive name]:\ Adobe Acrobat [version]\data1.cab. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it." If you click Retry, the installer returns the error message "Cannot find the file Adobe Acrobat [version]\data1.cab."
Solution Perform one or more of the following solutions:
Solution 1: Check the Acrobat CD-ROM.

Make sure that the CD-ROM from which you are installing is free of dirt and debris. If necessary, clean the CD-ROM with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Solution 2: Temporarily disable anti-virus software, and then install Acrobat.

For instructions, see the documentation for the anti-virus software or contact the manufacturer.
Solution 3: Extract the compressed installation files, and then install Acrobat.

  1. Right-click the folder and choose Extract All.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions.
  3. To install Acrobat, double-click the Setup.exe file located in the folder that contains the extracted files.
Solution 4: Uninstall the CD-ROM drive and let Windows redetect it, and then install Acrobat.

  1. Right-click My Computer and choose Properties.
  2. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
  3. Expand the DVD/CD-ROM drives section.
  4. Right-click each device listed under DVD/CD-ROM drives and choose Uninstall. Click OK to confirm.
  5. Close Device Manager and restart the computer.
  6. After Windows redetects the DVD/CD-ROM drive(s), insert the Acrobat CD into the CD-ROM drive and install Acrobat.
Solution 5: Install Acrobat from the desktop.

  1. Insert the Acrobat CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  2. Copy the Acrobat folder from the Acrobat CD to the Desktop.
  3. Double-click setup.exe in the Acrobat folder on the Desktop, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete installation.
Additional Information Errors 1311, 1335, and 2350 occur when the Acrobat installer is unable to access the necessary files from the CD-ROM drive. These same errors may also occur if antivirus software interferes with an installation or if the installation files are compressed.
