Click on start menu, click on "run" type in : ADD <device> select DRIVE as "autodetect" ON = 1. The device should be teleported to your computer without hasitation !

^ Just a little joke. Ok here's what you REALLY DO:
What you need: A DVD or CD or DVD/CD Combo Drive, screws that came with it. A 80pin ide cable (IF YOUR DRIVE IS IDE) an additional free power source from your Power supply. One of the thick plugs that come from your power supply that usually have like 4 openings at the end with a red,black,yellow wires attached to it. A phillips screwdriver. Make sure you

1.) Power off your machine
2.) Unplug the power cord.
3.) Open your computer case (watch out for waranty seals: if on, let the cd-rom be built in by the people who sold you the pc, otherwise your waranty will be GONE
4.) Remove one of your "Drive bay covers" @ the front of your machine.
5.) Check that the jumper configuration on your Drive is set to "cable" select. On the device self, it should tell you which jumper setting to use.
6.) Slide in your Drive into the drive bay where you have just removed the little approx 3cm x 20cm cover (Dont forget to put it out of the box or plastic though)
7.) Now take the screws (4) and fasten your new drive in the drive bay by using the Phillips. Check to the front so that the drive is neatly alligned with the front side or your PC (not needed but looks n1cer !)
7.) Connect your IDE cable to your motherboard, suppose to be on the secondary ide channel. IDE cables usually have three bus connectors on them. The ones that are very close to each other must come to the drives, the other one that is "alone" goes into your board. Standard cables can only go in one way. Other ide cables state which one goes to the "HOST" (Motherboard) or the "DRIVES" your Hard drive or CD-ROM DVD.
8) Connect the other side of the IDE cable to your Drive.
9) Connect your power plug to it (The little white one with the red, black and yellow wires attached to it. You should have a couple of free ones from your power supply.
10) Confirm that everyithing sits tightly and all cables are connected corretly
11) Close your PC casing again.
12) Plug back your power into the machine.
13) Start up and enjoy the pleasure of having a new drive :)

I already wrote disc but how to overwrite a disc


On a CD-R, if you don't finalize or write protect the disk, can you overwrite a file?

Or in overwriting are you simply creating a second file of the same name in the TOC/directory and deleting the name, only, of the first file


You can add more data if there is space on the DVD+R, but you can't overwrite it.

You see, when a disc is burned, little microscopic ridges are put onto the disc. This is your data.

You cannot overwrite this data.

It's kind of like trying to use a permanent marker on the same spot of paper twice.

Restarting Trouble


It is doing this as it is trying to install a Virtual CD/DVD, sometimes it mucks up. Boot into safe mode and uninstall from add/remove programs. Try another install in still no good, uninstall from add/remove programs again & try another burner.

Music dubbing into computer from CD


Problem seems to be solved, as I really search out how to use Cyberlink Power Director. Saved Music I wanted into the computer, then could attach the video already save to the program, then added the music where I wanted it, then burned a DVD. It actually plays on both our DVD players much to our delight and relief. If only I can remember next time around.

1 cd can hold 700mb of photos.
1 dvd. 4700 mb of photos.
depending on camera and the resolution of the pictures you are looking at about 350 pictures for a cd and 2500 for a dvd.

Dvd disk drive not showing in my computer


Hi!

The chances are that the drivers for them got corrupted and you can install them fron your motherboard cd. To install them go to Control panel-> add new hardware-> search for new hardware-> if it shows up then its good else add them from the list. It will then install the drivers from your motherboard cd (the cd you got with your system or from the cd you got with your disk drive).

If this doesn't help then check for the connectors(going into disk drive from power supply and motherboard) by opening your pc.

Please rate the solution.

Thanks
