Computer shuts down when VCR is set to

Using HP computer with XP Home software and the Dazzle DVD recorder. When the selections are made via menu to prepare for the recording and the VCR is turned to "Play" the computer will shut down either immediateky or it has recorder up to 15 minutes and then shut down.
Shut down refers to the blue screen stating that the system automatically shut down to avoid problems. On restart all else works OK. Norton shows no viruses and Spyware shows no threats and Registry Sweep has cleared out unnessary lines. Any ideas?

Drivers for hp laserjet 1020


You want to install the "full solution" or "HP LaserJet Full Feature Software and Driver". Their "Plug and Play Basic Driver " installs do not work. Just google "hp 1020 driver" and then select your OS from the drop-down menu item. If you have XP x64 then use the XP 32-bit driver but they are still making driver for newer OSes like Win 8.1 unlike some of their printers and it was built long enough ago that you can even use it on Windows 2000.

How can i make write protected content in my CD so that the data cannot be copied to any machine without permission. Which version of Nero supports for it and how to achieve it?? If any other software...


there are many solutions for ur issue...but the solution is based on what kind of CD u plan to create...as the solutions differ....
google and look for a solution that u need...
also there are many softwares than can RIP any kind of CD even though they may be created using a copy protect...many of the movies CD/DVD are copy protect(it's difficult to make a disk copy of that CD/DVD)....but the same can be played on any DVD player...the movie signal from the DVD player that is received by the TV can be recorded using any recording equip...(VCR, Camcorder, digital recorder, computer using special digital recording equip etc) and the same when is available in a PC as a E-file the same can be just copied on to a blank DVD...it's a known fact that crackers/pirates are more smarter than the ones who create a new tech....
so even though u may be able to create a copy protected CD, it I am sure can be pirated/ripped by many means...

Home dvd player won't play a burned dvd


Not all burned DVDs are compatible with all home DVD players.

Some things to do to help compatibility:

1. Use only DVD+Rs.
2. Burn at a slower speed (4x or below).
3. Make sure the software you are using to burn the DVD creates a menu. Most DVD players won't be able to play a DVD unless there is a menu; usually you can tell the software to skip the menu if you want but it still must be encoded onto the DVD.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution with a fixya rating. :c)

EZCD 5.0 and EZCD 6.0


I don't think that 6 and 5 are compatible 6 is an upgrade from 5. I have just 5 on one of my old XP computers and it works fine, but that's all I have. I went to the website and they are not giving any support for Roxio 6 anymore.
I will tell you that Roxio Easy Media Creator is fantastic. The things you can do with that are unbelieveable. I got it at Sam's Club for about $70. But I know that does not solve your problem.

Roxio 5
To burn data files, Open project selector, make a data cd, click data cd project. WhenEasy CD Creator 5 opens and you choose your files to burn, try this: Select Disc at Once Radio button, click okay and click burn.

ID Number: 000008GN Products: General Information
OS: Issue When burning a CD or DVD, you receive an error, burning does not complete, or your media is rejected. Resolution Burning errors can happen for a variety of reasons. Roxio has found that doing the following steps resolves about 80% of all burning issues. Please give all these steps a try and see if it fixes your writing problems.

  1. Update your drive's firmware/drivers. Most companies regularly update their firmware and drivers. If you are unsure what model your burner is and its firmware, click here to find out.

  2. Enable DMA. Direct Memory Access enables better efficiency of data. For more info, check how to enable DMA.
  3. The media. Check the following:
    • The disc is clean and unused.
    • The media is recommended by your burner's manufacturer or try a different brand, preferably a name brand, if you continue to have problems.
    • Make sure that media (-R/+R, -/+RW, dual-layer compatibility) is supported by the burner by checking burner's manual or manufacturer's website. This is especially true for some Blu-Ray burners which do not support CD-R/RW media.


  4. If your burner is external, make sure it is connected directly to the computer via USB/Firewire and not a hub or other other device like a sound card.
  5. Update to the latest PX Engine. The PX Engine improves compatibility with newer burners on the market.
  6. A reinstall of the burner's drivers may also help.
    • Windows XP: Go to My Computer and choose Properties.
    • Windows Vista: Go to Start --> Control Panel --> System and Maintenance --> Device Manager.
    • Click on the Hardware tab.
    • Select Device Manager
    • Expand DVD/CD-ROM Drives, then select your burner and uninstall it by right -licking on it.
    • Reboot.

I do know if you have Roxio5 you cannot installed Nero 6 InCD, not compatible. Other than all of the above, I have no more suggestions. I am really sorry, wish I could work on your computer to figure out the problem. This is my specialty. Reloading computer and figuring out problems. It is so much easier hands on.
Good Luck
