Go to your CD-R icon under my computer and right click and select properties. This should give you disk information if you are using Windows operating system.

If it shows you that the disk is full its either the disk is really fully or it was finalised to avoid further writng on disk

If it show that the disk has nothing on it it means the disk is either a blank CD or its information was corrupted and youcant burn anything on it nor read as well

If the disk shows free space then you can burn on it.

Want to copy files


With Windows OS you can open two Explorer windows, side-by-side, (The one you can direct to the source folder, the other to the destination drive or folder.) press Ctrl/A to select all files in the "source" window, then right-click/drag the files to the "destination" window. When you release the right mouse button, you'll be offered a selection of options: copy, create shortcuts, etc. You can also right-click all the highlighted files, and select "Copy", click within the folder you want to copy to, right-click the folder, click Paste.

Instead of a right-click, you can press the keyboard button on the lower right that looks like a list to open the same Context Menu with the Copy/Paste and other options. Af ter selecting all, you can deselect some files or folders you don't want copied.. hold down the Ctrl key while you select the items you want to remove from the highlighted list.

There are programs that will copy for you; there are batch files you can write that will do the same.

How do I download voice recordings from my Panasonic RR-US551 voice recorder to my desktop computer?


The RRUS551should come with a short USB cable that you can plug into your PC at one end and the RRUS551 at the other. Windows should detect your device automatically and present you with a menu of choices.You can select "Open containing folder and view files."
This will open an Explorer type window where you can just select the files you want and copy and paste them to somewhere else on your PC.

It is better to shut down your PC completely before disconnecting the cable.
Else you may corrupt files on your device.

Hope this helps.

How do i download pics from comp to disk


Hi,
  1. Insert a writeable CD or DVD into your computer's CD or DVD recorder.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to data disc.
  3. In the Burn a Disc dialog box, type a name for this disc, and then click Next.
    It might take several minutes for the disc to be formatted in the default Live File System format. When the formatting is complete, an empty disc folder opens.
  4. Open the folder that contains the files you want to burn, and then drag the files into the empty disc folder.

    cdb4d559-8825-47a1-8175-79020965d91c.pngYou can copy files to the disc folder by dragging them to the disc icon or to an open disc folder As you drag files into the disc folder, they are copied automatically to the disc.

But I recommend you to use any CD or DVD burning software like Nero, BurnAware etc. There are lots of free burning tools available on Internet too.

Why I recommend third party software is because you can select burn speed plus minimum disc burning error.

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.

Voice Recorder-Files to CD?


Please follow the below solutions to create either an audio CD-ROM of .wav files or back-up
.wav files to a CD-ROM.
Problem: .Wav files downloaded to PC computer from the DW-90, VN Series, and DSS Files
created with DS Series recorders cannot be copied to a rewritable CD-ROM using Windows
Media Player to create an audio CD-ROM.
Explanation: These digital voice recorders create .wav files at 8kHZ, 12kHZ, or 22kHz
depending on the Quality setting. Digital Wave player software is used to download Wav files to
a PC computer from the DW or VN Series of recorders. DSS Player is used to download DSS
files from the DS Series recorders and convert them to Wav files. If Windows Media Player is
then used to copy the files to a rewritable CD-ROM to create an audio CD-ROM, the files will
not copy properly or an error message may appear. Windows Media Player can only create an
audio CD-ROM if the .wav file is 44.1kHZ, 16 bit stereo.
Solution: Follow the procedure below to convert the .wav files to 44.1 kHZ, 16 bit stereo. Then
use Windows Media Player to copy the files to a rewritable CD-ROM.
1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click Entertainment, and then click Sound Recorder.
2. On the File menu, click Open.
3. In the Open dialog box, specify the name of the audio file that you want to convert, and
then click OK. Files are usually located at C:\Program Files\Olympus\Digital Wave
Player\Message\Folder A.
4. On the File menu, click Save As.
In the Save As dialog box, click Change.
In the Attributes box, click 44.100 kHz, 16 Bit, Stereo, and then click OK.
Click Save. After you convert your files, try to copy them to a CD-ROM again.

Dowloading audio files onto my computer..


I have an Olympus recorder. I don't know if the software is similar but their software has a way of copying the files to folders in the software. These files can then be used in other audio programs such as ITunes if you want to transfer it to your Ipod or audio recording software so that you can drag and drop them into one file.

If you look in the folder where your voice manage software is, is there a folder where the audio files are being stored within the program?
