Question about Dell Dimension C521 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a Dell Dimension C521 computer with a LG DVD drive. Trying to send a file to this drive using either a new writable cd or a cd-rw and I get a message that the cd is full and the file cannot be copied. Checking the properties shows the cd full with no space. Whats the problem? System is Windows XP.

Try to check your cd-rw or cd-r that are new and did not use anymore or maybe it was damage. And maybe the files that you copied are exceed the capacity of the cd-r or cd-rw so that they could not write the files. If your using the Nero Burning ROM you just see the capacity of your cd-r or cd-rw before you going to write it to the cd. Just make sure that the files you want to copy are not exceed the capacity of the cd.

Why cant I write onto my blank DVD disk I have windows XP and DVD R in my DELL writable drive.Im trying to copy about 1 gig of JPEGS onto the disk. The disc is MAXELL 4.75 GB DVD R. Im using windows XP....


It doesn't matter what name or brand the disc is. All it matters that it is a writable disc. If you had aldready written previous files on that DVD disc and then it was compiled, it wont write again. When the computer requests to compile a disc, say no, otherwise you wont be able to write more data on the same disc. The same goes if you have selected a CD to burn. There are 3 ways to do so. Try copy and paste, drag and drop the file to the DVD icon or CD icon, or right click on the file to be burned and select 'Send to...' choose the DVD drive, (D:), see what happens.

New CD R/RW drive will not let XP Boot


hi,
on the back of the new drive usually is a set of tiny pin jumpers, and a diagram for it on the drive, you might have to switch the pin jumper to "cs" cable select or "slave" usually master is for the hard drive. If that didnt do it then while the computer is booting hit f-8 or maybe f-9 and get into your bios area, search for boot sequence and study the area in there and see if your drives listed, try and change the config there so your hard drive(c) boots first, then usually your new drive. hopefully one of those ideas gets ya going, good luck

Dimension E510 dvd burner will not burn


Go to this link and click on the Fixit box. Microsoft has an issue with CD/DVD recognition and created a patch. This happens a lot when Windows Update runs and installs SP3. Hope this solves your problem. If it doesn't, right click on your DVD drive and ensure that recording is enabled. Hope this solves your recording issue.

DVD-RW IBM A31 Thinkpad problem


I take it you are trying to "send to" files to the DVD-RW?You can't burn a DVD just with windows XP . It only supports CDRW drives.

Get commercial software like Roxio or Nero, or download a free CD burning program like this one:

DVD+RW Not recognized as a writable drive


There could be a few things going wrong here, firstly when you send a file using Windows poor inbuilt writing programme, i think you need to use a re writable disc, although i could be wrong, but thats worth a try. Also go to My computer, right click on your dvd drive and go to properties, then along the top row of tabs, the end one should say 'Recording', click on the tab and make sue that 'Enable CD recording on this drive' is ticked, and just below make sure that the dvd you use is showing in the drop down window. Finally if you still have trouble, my advice would be to use a dedicated programme for writing to cd and dvd for example Nero burning Rom or Nero 7 being the later version. In this nero you use your drive as a 'floppy type' drive, where you right click on file and send to and it writes straight to the disk and also enables you to change the file or delete, unlike windows programme.
