It depends upon what type of data you want to copy onto a CD or DVD.
If you want to copy and play music in a CD player then it needs to be on a CD disc.
If you want to copy and play movie DVDs in a DVD player then it needs to be on a DVD disc.
If you want to backup data files then it can be on either CD or DVD discs (depending upon the amount of data to be stored on the disc - CD holds 700 Mb, single layer DVD holds 4.7 Gb, and dual layer DVD holds 8.5 Gb of data).
A DVD player can read both CDs and DVDs, but a CD player cannot read DVD discs.
Hi saratrought, if Windows XP runs and you have read problems in CD/DVD drive try to read another disk, if any other disk work fine then you need to copy your CD/DVD info (or program) in another new disk.
Or just use Windows Explorer to try copy all data from CD/DVD disk to a New Folder in your Hard Drive and then from that location you can try to install your program, if your data don´t copy well then again i tell you that it´s your disk not your CD/DVD drive.
As from your question I can say that you are only using windows default copying service. First of all you must try copying the data using some third party softwares such as Ashampoo or Nero. You can try to burn a CD/DVD image with it or simply try to write data using these softwares. Dell has been suspected of having this problem in few cases, so DVD RW drive might also be faulty. Also, there is this microsoft page which can be useful: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=316529
Try choosing a different set of songs, if still your CD burning fails, try copying large chunk of data or a data cd to cd copy if possible. If this also fails, you have to give your cd burner for service / replacement based on the warranty entitled.
1.) Remove EVERY FILE from the memory card folder. There should be NO FILE in the memory card folder.(you haven't even booted 1 game yet so....yeah....that folder should be completely empty)
2.) Copying the files from the CD/DVD WILL NOT WORK. You have to create an ISO out of the game or run game from CD/DVD rom drive. However as I said before, I have had better luck with making an ISO out of the game and running it from hard drive then trying to run it from DVDROM. The choice is yours. PCSX2 will not play files just copied from the DVD you must make it an ISO in order to use that option.
When you open Nero select copy dvd. Select the dvd-rom as the read drive. Put the dvd to be copied in there. Select the dvd-rw as the write drive and place a blank dvd r or dvd rw in it the select copy.
alright. bubul78, your post is in no way shape or form a solution for the problems given by other users. I too have a acer laptop with the philips dvd drive in it, device manager detects the dvd reader and says it is running with no problems. i can hear the drive read the cd when inserted, tho when trying to access the drive through my computer the window hangs at the hourglass for a min or so, then says please insert a cd. only solution is that something is physically wrong with the drive. ok so solution found, replace the cd drive. but where is acers sight to order replacement parts? poor site navigation in my opinion.
Go to my computer on your desktop, then right click and down to properties,then hardware tab, then device manager.
Click on the '+' sign on the DVD/CDROM line, right click on your DVD Rom and click uninstal.
Restart your pc and let Windows find your DVDROM again.
Just double check that autoplay is set on the drive by right click on my computer, down to explore, right click on your 'D' drive (if this is your DVDROM) down to properties, then click on autoplay tab, and on the drop down box, highlight what files you want to autoplay.
If no joy there is an autorun fix programme on the Microsoft site here.
