    Hello OZ,

    Thank you for the prompt reply. It was very simple and digestable.:):))

    I did follow your advise and realized the Maxell CD's open in another comp.But my laptop opens all other brand CD's with pic and music other than Maxell.Weird isn't it?.More weird is that the Maxell CD's have a mind of its own it does open randomly on my laptop.(There goes another one for you to solve)

    Do you think I should still work on the OS as what u suggested earlier?

    I am trying to back up the Marell CD stuff and reburn them in another CD.I am thinking the Maxell CD is gone bad.Correct me if I am wrong.

    Thanks again

Dear aggie07 (Seeja)

Righteo, heres another strange one for me to solve.....

Firstly, what you should try to do is open the disc on another computer to make sure you dont have a drive fault/ read error on your machine.

If you re like me and ou have noticed that one drive only reads, and the other one only writes, then you need to consider going out and buying a 2.5" external hard drive caddy and laptop drive and backing eberything up onto that, then re-installing your operating system. This might b your best bet, just in case your machine has gone waffty and it wont burn files properly, so yep, thats my answer to it, back it up, clear it out, then burn it off again. If it still is not working, then either you have a defective writer drive or drives, or the media you are using is ****. Having said that, maxell are not generally too bad disks, so i wouldnt have thought that that would be an issue.

Th last one to try is save them in the correct format. Either JPEG, or JPG will do, or other formats such as BITMAP. here possible, avoid compressing files with things like winzip/ winrar, and dont overburn your discs. Ensure that windows can open it too, do this by going to microsofts site and checking theri file compatability list.

|Right, well I hope this is to your satisfaction, and wish to hear from you soon in order to find out how you got on with this one,

in the mean time, please take care, and hope to hear from you soon

yous sincerely


P.S. Im her every day 24hrs 7/365 days a year, so if you do have other issues relating to a technical problem/ geeky matter, please do feel free to collar me over and i will help you with these and any other electronics friendly and wont bite, and my advice, is simple and digestable.......

good luck Seeja

    Dear seeja

    Right, well this is strange, and if one machine is reading these discs randomly, and your other machine is not, then either it could be down to either the layering of the discs (how far the information is burnt into the disc) or even how the laser head is anticipating the data.

    My other guess is Operating system corruption, I would suggest bcking up everything onto seperate media and then re-installing the operating system.

    Once this is done, I would also suggest that you discontinue using this brand of disks and even send them back to the manufacurer/ vendor as possibly faulty. It is possible that you have a bad batch of disks, so certainly query this too.

    Lastly, viruses, spyware, worms, trojans and other malware can affect the way your system is reading and writing to disks and disk packs (hard drives), so if you notice any slowing up or pooling of data on your system, then its a good chance you have infections, so get rid of these by formatting your hard drive and re-install your operating system.

    Ri-disc, tevion and tuffdisc are three very good brands of disk to use, and its unlikely you will encounter any burning issues/ read-write problems with and sony are also good makes, and if you are using DVD, then only consider using dual layer +- discs.

    I hope this resolves your situation for the moment, and please do let me know how you are getting on,

    yours sincerely

How many pictures can be put on a 700md disc

It depends on the size in MB or KB of each picture. Seven for a 100MB pictures! But many are only 500KB, two will make 1MB. So you would be talking about 1400 pictures at 500KB.

Some disk can be manufactured bad. Simply try another disc & check. If that too fails, then most probably the lens in the CD ROM has failed - better buy a new one.
