Question about CD & DVD Burners

Acer cdrw 8x4x32

I can't use my ACER CDRW because the old software habgs up. So I tried to upgrade my disk Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4.02c / DirectCD 3.01c. My computer guru uninstalled these programs because of conflicts. I want to upgade but I can't because I don't have the old creator installed anymore.
What do I do to upgrade the software and maybe drivers? Do I have to junk the CDRW? ACER is impossible to talk to/write emails response.

Try calling them instead of sending emails. (408) 533-7700 – Phone
And you will probably need to update the drivers on your CD drives hardware. Hope this helps :)

My Iomega CDRW64001 keeps ejecting my blank CDs. The external LED blinks for several minutes and then ejects the CD with or without a burn program open. It plays recorded CDs and I'm able to install...

Your best solution (since your USB devices and your network-adapter are not working) is to remove the disk-drive from the old computer, and temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in the new computer, and then copy all your files from "old" to "new".

Or, try a different brand of "blank" CD-R disks -- the "firmware" (software inside the CD-writer) may not be recognizing "newly-manufactured" media). Unless you can update the firmware (by downloading the latest firmware on another computer, and burning a CD-R disk, and then taking that disk to your computer), it's easiest to "move" the disk-drive to the new computer.

The CD Burner drive is compatible with your Windows XP the software version is where the problem is. You need to get an updated version of the burner program, something like Nero burning ROM or Roxie EZ CD creator.

I have an external Acer CDRW 12 x 8 x 32. I've put a disc in but when I try to drag and drop from the computer I get the message insert disc into E: What am I doing wrong

Using drag and drop on a CD rewritable gives only a lot of headaches, and often does not work.

You need to use a software to copy cds, download and install from one of the following websites:

that is b/c you only have an CDRW/DVD ROM (from your title). You need a DVD+-R to be able to write to a dvd+ - R disk.

Some CD burners will only work with specific CD's.
CD+R (most common format)
CD-R (other format)
CDRW (Re-writeable)

Check manual for correct working type of disk that works with your machine.
