Unable to create back up due no disc burner


You need an external drive of some sort. You can get an external optical drive/burner. For USB connected DVD burners, these are $30-50 (depending on if they need an AC adapter or not). You can also get an external Blu-ray burner but those are more expensive. Most backup programs may also allow you to create a backup to a USB hard drive or large flash drive. (My backups require at least 32 GB storage.) If you get a Blu-ray burner, you may still be limited to backing up to DL DVDs. (We have an HP with an internal Blu-ray burner that couldn't make the initial backup to Blu-ray.)

If you have any version of Windows 7 (above the Starter version), you can make a backup to a USB drive easily. (I'm not sure about Macs or Unix.) In WIndows 7, click Start > All Programs > Maintenance. Then follow the directions to save a backup.

Follow the directions for the initial backup for HP, Dell, Gateway and other brands after connecting the external drive. Make sure that the laptop is on AC power before burning any backup.

I hope this helps.

We want to wacth movie on d laptop,but we need dvd player to put inside,what will we do.


Since you've left out the make/model of the laptop, I'm going to assume it's a NetBook type that does not include a CD/DVD Drive internally, and has no space for one.
With this in mind, the only real choices you have are to watch the movies Streamed to your laptop via a service such as netflix, Copying the movie to a USB drive and viewing it from there, or getting an external DVD drive.

Windows should recognise it without a specific driver as Windows has them. Try it in another PC / laptop to eliminate faulty unit. If it doesn't work then its faulty. If it does work then your Windows may be corrupted.
You could Google the driver / install and retry.

My gateway laptop's dvd/cd drive stopped working, all of a sudden, but it plays music cds, it is just the DVDs that don't play them or even explore... what could it be the problem? how do i solve it? it...


Are you sure yours is a DVD player? It could only be a CD-CD writer, which will NOT play DVDs.
Open your control panel ->system->hardware->device manager and click on the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon. The listed devices will tell you if you really have a dvd player or not. If you do really have a dvd player, try a different dvd

Sony Walkman NWZ-A826 will not conect to laptop via usb cable


I experienced exactly the same problem on my laptop (Vista Home Premium) after upgrading to NIS 2009.

From Control Panel, I went to Device Manager. Under Portable Devices there was a yellow exclamation mark aginst my walkman (Micosoft Code 19 error). I read around a bit before deciding to click Uninstall. Once that was complete, I clicked on Scan for hardware changes, and hey presto my walkman was recognised again.

This is almost certainly connected with NIS 2009 installation as my walkman was recognised by another laptop (XP) which is NIS 2009-free.

How can I boot from USB in a Thinkpad T22?


I assume with "boot menu" you mean the BIOS boot menu (the one you get to if you press F12 during start up, before the Windows screen appears.)
  1. Go to "Enter Setup"
  2. Go to "Config", click "Enter"
  3. Go down to "USB", click "Enter"
  4. Make sure that "USB Bios Support" is enabled.
  5. (Hit "Enter" again and choose between "enabled" and "disabled")
  6. Hit "Esc" twice to go back to the main page.
  7. Go down to "Startup", click "Enter"
  8. Choose "Boot"
  9. Check if "USB CD" is in the list of boot options or excluded form booting.
  10. Hit F10, confirm any changes you made (click "Enter" for 'yes') and reboot.
  11. Tap or hold down F12 again and you should see the boot option menu again.

Note: I am not 100% sure if you can boot from a DVD externally.
I booted from the internal DVD drive fine with a Linux LiveCD. It is possible that the T22 BIOS does not support external booting. Check you version - the latest release from IBM is version 16ET32WW (1.12), release date 06/03/2004. You find that info here.

I would really appreciate if you could come back here and leave a comment, so I (and maybe others?) can learn form this ;-)

Good luck!

External memory - sd card recognition on pc??


if it doesn't even appear on windows explorer either the sd card, usb link or iriver is defective. if all else fails try getting a memory card reader. this allows you to store files on the card through the computer and still be able to insert the card as external storage on the iriver x20. the only trouble with that is that its hard to get the card in and out of the iriver
