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.

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.

I already wrote disc but how to overwrite a disc


On a CD-R, if you don't finalize or write protect the disk, can you overwrite a file?

Or in overwriting are you simply creating a second file of the same name in the TOC/directory and deleting the name, only, of the first file


You can add more data if there is space on the DVD+R, but you can't overwrite it.

You see, when a disc is burned, little microscopic ridges are put onto the disc. This is your data.

You cannot overwrite this data.

It's kind of like trying to use a permanent marker on the same spot of paper twice.

Remove read only from cd


The only way to change a file on a CD is to copy it to your hard drive, modify it there, after you change the attributes of the file from read only. Then re-burn the file(s) to a new CD.

Hello i have sony AD-7240S cd/dvd drive it can read all cd/dvds but it cant read my burnt cd/dvds plz give me suggestion


there is something wrong with the format of the files that you burnt. its either the format is not recognized by your dvd player or the format is not supposed to be burnt.try reading every details whenever you're burning a file to a cd/dvd. at the same time, check the specifications of your dvd player and find out the formats that it can read or recognize so that you'd know what format should you burn a file into.

No real problem just trying to figure out what kind of cd and dvd to burn with rw rw+ ect ect


R means write (yeah...) once the data has been burnt you cannot delete or change the files
RW means re-writable, the data can be burnt and then copied over again.

R+ and R- are specific for different types of copying, for burning data either disc format is fine

How to download mp3 music into the dvd disc


You can burn the mp3 music files to a DVD disc. Just burn the mp2 files as normal data files.
Some CD players can play mp3 music files but they need to be burnt onto a CD disc NOT a DVD disc.

Cannot delete read only audio file from cd


You cannot delete a file from a CD-R or CD+R which is why it is a read only file. If you left the session open when you wrote to the disk you can add files to the CD. If you closed the session with your burning software it will fill the disk with blanks not allowing you to write any more files to the CD. You can Erase and Write to a CD-RW, but you will have to erase the entire disk and rewrite to it. You can copy the files to your hard drive and insert a new disk or erase the CD-RW and reburn the files excluding the one you do not want on the CD. Bottom line the CD has optical information physically burned on the CD unlike magnetic media it cannot be erased by rearranging the metal oxide making the file unreadable. Magnetic media works similar to an Etch-a-sketch where you can easily erase the image by shaking it. CD's and DVD's work like a canvas where you can paint easily, but you have to paint over the image or strip the paint to delete the image.

Dvd drive WILL NOT read burnt dvd's or CD's


The problem occurs mostly when your drive is dying. I had the same problem with my laptop writer recently after which it completely stopped writing discs. Contact your support. Sometimes they would ask you to remove the upper and lower filters of an entry in the registry which would sometimes resolve the problem.
