Files on this CD-ROM drive are read only. You cannot copy or move files over to this CD-ROM drive.


This sounds like that CD is already written on. CDs do not work like a thumb drive or floppy disk.

No all cds/dvd work in all cd/dvd drives. I suspect your drive cannot read that make of cd although anothers cd rom can. Try making a copy of the disk on someone elses pc and try that in yours and you will probably find it works. You could always copy the cd to a pen drive and install it on yours from that.

My cd rom won't detect blank cds


Hi,

try re-installing your burning software ( nero-Roxio et,c )
Does it play a standard Music/Audio CD.
if not un-install and re-install the drive.
Are the cables to the drive connected correctly ?
Does the drive support CD+ And CD- media ?
Are the cds definately Blank, any small amount of data written to them, after failed burn attempts will not show the disk as being empty.

CD changer will not play reads "player error" .


Most new car-stereo's don't have an "oldschool" CD-drive, but really a CD-ROM drive; meaning that they won't (properly) read and/or play copy-protected CDs.

Most CD protections are specially designed not to work in CD-ROM drives to prevent copying. As a side-effect most of those protected CDs won't work in car-stereo's.

Try a CD without copy-protection (like an homemade audio CD using burning software on your computer) and see it that works ?

In case that doesn't work either, your car's CD-drive is probably broken ...

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
