Hello bluepixie

if you are using cd-r when burning the files you cant delete the files as they will be read only , i would suggest using the cd-rw which you can re write over when need to .

Most cd's are read only, that is u can only write on them but can't delete anything from them, unless u use the rewritable cd's if u want to delete a file.

How to delete songs


You cant delete anything once files are burnt to a disk.
you will have to copy the music to a folder then delete the music files that you don't want then you can add more music files then burn them to another cd/dvd
Click start click on computer to open you should see your drives C: and your other drives cd dvd and your phone E: or F:

Right click on the the music disk to open you should see your music

from there you select the music files right click on the music file/s select copy navigate back to the drive right click select paste or hold the mouse cursor the music file/s drag them to your
computer and paste them in usually in my documents my music.

When I started my pc i got the message " bad bios checksum. starting bios recovery. as I no longer have my Asus P4V8X-X support cd. I went to the asus website and downloaded the latest bios for this...


Instead of updating your bios try removing the bios battery and then wait for about 5 mins then plug it back in to reset it. Most often that fixes the problem faster and easier.

CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning


I may add alot of times older equipment has a hard time reading burned cd's because when ever burning cd's the pits that are burnt into the cd are shallow. The faster the cd burns the more shallow it is... one thing you can try to do is burn at 2x in the WAV format cause it most diffenately will not read mp3 format being that old equipment. You may get lucky burning at 2x because the pits that it burns in the cdrom will be deeper. As the clarification said do use CD-R's. If this doesn't work at 2x chances are that equipment is just not going to be able to read a burnt cd period. Good Luck!!! I hope this works for you!!!

1.Try using a CD-ReWriter Drive instaed of simple CD Rom drive.Some CD's can be read on CD-RW drives which are unaccessable on CD ROMs.
2.Use the CD burning program "NERO" (or anyother) to read files on your CD through its menu just before burning.Then copy those files to your HDD if you want to save your data.
