Trouble using zoombrowser EX with windows vista ultimate

Every time I try to burn photos to disc my PC tells me I don't have a CD/DVD dive capable of performing this task. I know I do! Is there some sort of incompatibility between Vista & Zoom browser EX? Help please, I need to back up my photos.

    my OS is Vista Home Premium and I have the latest version of zoombrowser ex(v.6.0.c) but the zb module after installation displays an error message that says " closing zb module".

    In the Zoom Browser there i possibility to backup photos on CD-R only. DVD media type is not supported ? Impossible !

    I have the same problem as Invictus. When I first try to open the program I get this: "An unidentifed program wants acces to your computer." I believe this is a Vista Security message. After clicking on "Allow", The Zoombrowser openning panel is displayed for a few seconds and then the windows message "Zb module stopped working" It also says that Windows is trying to find a solution, which of course it never can. The only button available is "Close Program". Also the initial sign says version 6.1.1, no "c".

    I have come to the just conclusion that the program itself is flawed/has bugs. because i so desperately needed this program to work i ran my restoration disk, restoring my computer back to its factory condition, so that NO programs could conflict with ZoomBrowser and when i installed it again, it STILL DID NOT WORK, i kept getting the same problem and error message

I found the problem.
This is what I did to solve the problem:


1. stop ZB

2. Delete all the ZbThumbnail.info files under "my pictures" and "my documents"

3. Move out all photos and directories from under "my pictures". Move them to a temp directory. ex d:\temp.
4. Start ZB and download some pictures from memory card

5. Then start moving files from temp dir to "my pictures", testing ZB occasionally.

Thanks

    this fix was found after an extensive search and a lot of installing, reinstalling and messing with vista permissions etc. I copied here to help others from repr]eating my error -- the problem is very simple some existing photos in the pictures directory are incompatable with the zb module. Removing all photos to a temp file and then adding them and seeing which the zb module can read and which it can, isolates the incompatability and allows the program to run. Those files that are incompable can then be stored in another directory other than the default picture folder that zb uses.

My new PowerShot SD780 IS is totaly awsome but the ZoomBrowser software provided on the CD is completely nonfunctional. The only thing that works is PhotoStitch. Everything else needed to be sent to the trash bin.

My hp 630 cannot read a CD/DVD, when inserting a Disk it doesn't recognize it so what seem to be the problem because the Cd Rom tells me that it is OK but doesn't recognize a CD?


It is possible the lens is dusty and may need a cleaner inserted or if it is a blank disc you are trying to burn try another brand some cheaper brands do not have capability.

How do I format a dvd disc


You don't have to. DVD's and CD's are already formatted from factory. But if you are having problems to record on (burn) them probably your computer is not capable for DVD burn, just CD's. But if it is equipped for burning then try this:
See alsoFormat a CD or DVD


Before you can copy files to a CD or DVD, the disc must first be prepared using a process called formatting. There are several ways to format a CD or DVD disc. Your choice of format determines which computers and other devices will be able to read the disc.

  1. Insert a disc into your computer's CD or DVD drive.

  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to disc.

  3. In the Burn a disc dialog box, type a name for your new disc.

  4. Click Show formatting options, and then click one of the following formatting options:

    • Live File System

    • Mastered

  5. Click Next to prepare the disc.

    Now you can copy files to your disc using whichever method you selected.

I am new to the computer world & need some help ? How do i transfer my pictures from my computer to a disc ? Thanks


This is for windows 7:
Click the Burn button.
  1. Open your Pictures library from the Start menu and select your desired photos.
  2. Select the photos and folders you want to copy by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking their icons. Or, to select all the photos within a folder, press Ctrl+A.
  3. Need to select photos from multiple folders? Don't select any photos or folders in this step. Proceed with the rest of the burn process and Windows 7 will open an empty window showing the newly inserted disc's contents: nothing. Drag and drop the photos you want to burn into that window. When you're ready, go back to the Pictures Library and click Burn.

  4. Insert a blank CD or DVD into your writable disc drive.

  5. Decide how you want to use the disc:

    1. Like a USB flash drive:

    2. Choose this option when you intend for other PCs to read the disc. Windows 7 treats the disc much like a folder, letting you copy additional photos to the disc later.
    3. With a CD/DVD player: Choose this option to create discs that play on CD and DVD players attached to TVs. Don't choose this unless you plan to view the disc on a TV. You can't add any images to this disc later, so be sure to get them all selected the first time.

  6. Type a name for your disc and click Next.

  7. Click the Burn or Burn to Disc button again, if necessary.

Unable to Boot


I think you burn into CD\DVD is incorrect. Recopy any Software is OK using ISO, but to find out that your burn that into proper ISO also, It will not work. To burn is again is extracted from ISO back to Bootable Windows Vista DVD.
Here is a a tip, use another program like Nero to burn into image, the file is .NRG or .ISO...
Or for easy tip, try COPY DISC for assurance that it will run again as is.
Good luck!

CD drive doesnt recognize a dvd


Sorry to say, but a CD drive cannot read DVD's. You need a DVD reader. Thus, the CD drive will not recognize DVD media and tell you no valid disc is in the drive. I recommend buying a DVD RW (reader/writer), as they are inexpensive and enable you to burn DVDs as well as read them.
