Question about Cpi (C1731) Burner

Dell latitude cpi-A series

I have an old but perfectly servicable latitude A-Series laptop currently running XP. I recently replaced the original cd player with a dvd/cd player. Problem appears that the processor, an intel pentium II running at 297mhz does not seem to be fast enough to play DVD's correctly. The sound is perfect but the picture is very jerky. Looking at the system performance, it is showing the cpu running at 100%. Is there anyway of increasing the processor speed or replacing it with one running at 400Mhz. I have tried using alternative media drivers in the hope of finding a more efficient one but no luck. I would certainly appreciate any assistance.

Re: Dell latitude cpi-A series

Your computer is only a 400 Mhz and your RAM is probably very low.
Download ISO of GeeXbox Linux. Google it. Make sure to burn it as an "image" on a Data CD at 4X speed (check Sonic, Nero or whatever burner you have before attempting it). Change instructions in the BIOS (go into set-up with F2) to boot from CD/DVD ROM first. Put your burned CD of GeeXbox and start your computer. It will load entirely into memory and eject the CD. Put your movie in it and enjoy.

My laptop dell d610 dont have a cd/dvd+RW it cannot burn cd or dvd, i want to download cd/dvd+Rw to enable to burn

It sounds like the problem is your hardware, the current optical drive you have installed cannot burn disks, not matter what software you download you will not be able to do this without the correct hardware. You will need to buy a new drive that is Read/Write capable from a local computer store.

System file corrupt and CD Drive doesn't work to run Install CD

First: Boot into safe mode on "bad" laptop...

Open a command window...
(start, run, "cmd.exe", <enter>)
At the command prompt, type:
It will probably say something about cannot lock the volume, do you want me to schedule a disk check at next startup? Say yes and reboot...


Does the other laptop work, and does it have a functioning CD drive?


Copy the I386 directory of the XP install CD to the USB Hard Drive using the working laptop.

Then, boot "bad" laptop into safe mode.
Plug USB HDD into "bad lapttop", hope it is recognized and copy the I386 directory to the c:\ drive.
After the copy is complete, run


Choose upgrade if you wish, but I'd have the program replace the existing windows installation. Leave the HDD as is if asked, do NOT format it. This way, you can navigate around and find your "old" data on the HDD after Windows has finished installing.

Have your installation Key/Serial No. at the ready.

Toshiba TEAC CD-224E BA - not playing CDs at all

Just replace the drive - the Teac CD-224E is housed in the SelectBay housing and any Teac CD-224E that came out of Toshiba will do. eBay would be your best bet. If you pay more than $10 then you must be a tourist...
