Hi check the disks closely, you may have bought DVD disks by mistake.
A normal CD will not recognise a DVD disk.

Is the Hp Pavillion G series capable of burning disks? or how can i tell if it is.


It BETTER be capable!

Blank disk in optical drive right-click on the file you want to copy. Click on Copy in the fly-out list.

No burning software?
I suggest you use Infra Recorder then. It works great, and is FREE,

(Click on the Infra Recorder user interface shown at the top right, to enlarge)

Still no? Problem with the optical drive. The laser optical eye may be dirty. Use a disk cleaner, or a can of compressed air for computers.
(Remove ALL power before using compressed air. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Have just purchased a secondhand Philips 570 cd recorder and purchased TDK blanks for my first recording test.While the disc was still in the machine it recorded and played back ok.However,after removing...


Are you sure the TDK blank had either AUDIO/MUSIC somewhere written on the disc...if not, then that is the problem. On the other hand it it should not have recorded or played back as you said it did.
If it did have Audio/Music written on the disc, then first of all give the laser a clean by using either a disc cleaner or better still, take the cover off and gain access to the laser, using a cotton bud, diped in INDUSTRIAL METHALATED SPIRIT (usually coloured purple) do not use medical metholated spirit as oily additives could be added and smear the laser lens. Dry off the lens with the dry end of the cotton bud. Do not soak the cotton bud in the spirit, just a very small amount will do !!!
If it does not work now, try using other good named branded Audio/Music CD-R discs as there appears to be such a variation in the quality of CD discs which is well documented !
Did you FINALISE the TDK disc before you removed it from you recorder??
I have a feeling its the TDK disk.....I avoid TDK if I can...Try Sony or Philips Audio/Music discs, very few failures for me with those brands.
Hope this has ben of some help...good luck

You need to reinstall them, they will be on the communication disk that came with your machine or the 4D software cd if you purchased that.

Your CD drive has an internal failure which is usually the laser head. It would be cheaper to replace the drive or use your DVD drive to read CD's then to have the laser head replaced in the CD drive. The disk tray motor system is not connected with the read write system in the drive and the tray ejecting or loading a disk is not an indication of the health of the drives logic system or laser head.

Purchased 4480 Deskjet on or about 1/18/10 to go with HP 6250 Pavillion. Printer software would not install?? Please advise


1. Check the disk on another computer and see if you get response from the disk.
a. if you do then this may be your cd rom or DVD read/writer is not working properly.
b. If not, then the cd make be a corrupted copy.
2. Call the manufacturer and ask for a new copy since you have just purchased the printer. They should be happy to send you a new copy of the installing software.
3. Take the unit and all it's compnents back to the place of purchase and inform them of the issue and request a new printer with a new copy of the installing cd and get assurance from the store manager that if it doesn't work can you bring the unit back and get a refund.

Transfer data from a dead laptop to a new laptop


Do you have a usb to SATA connector? If so you can plug the old drive into the USB slot and it will act as a slave so you can pull the contents from the old drive to the new. The adapter is about 25.00 or If it was me I would invest into a pocket USB hard drive case that you can put your old drive into perminatly so you can always have a external hard drive for back up later after yo uhave moved the data over and reformatted it. The case is $25-$40.00.

I cannot find TDK XA80 CD-R Audio - Recordable Compact Discs


All you guys looking for AUDIO burner CDs' should try the MEMOREX CD-R MUSIC CDs. These are a new product, released to REPLACE the TDK XA80 AUDIO CDs.

Stocks are a bit low right now - but only because this is a new product - and people like me are buying up big.

'Tanya' at JB Hi Fi in Erina Fair on the NSW Central Coast, has promised me that she will be ordering plenty of these discs because she is aware of our dilema. Apparently Head Office of JB HiFi has also advised their numerous stores of this MEMOREX product and they should all be having them in stock shortly.

Product description:
Red cardboard box with 10 blank CDs in slim jewel cases. Marked "Memorex Music CD-R" 700MB (80min) Mine cost me $8.95c for this pack of ten.

These work fine on my stand alone, Hi-Fi LG dual tray burner and also on a mates' Pioneer CD burner. Good luck and thank God for Memorex!
