I have an old e machine Tower Mod.667IR S/N QA309-108-O2995 no manual on hand. Please advise correct drawer ID. Top drawer C or D ? Mid drawer C or D ? Which drawer is the Burn drawer? Bottom...


Your master hard drive will be C, slave hard drive or top media drive will be D, and so on unless you have reconfigured them from the factory setup. Floppy disks only have 1.44 megabytes on them, so easiest way to copy data from them is just to drag and drop all the files into a folder on your desktop. Insert a blank CD-R into your writeable drive...win 2000 will open a blank cd window. drag and drop the files you wish to copy into the blank cd window and click "burn these files to disc". A CD-R has 700 megabytes on it, so roughly 675 floppy discs can be copied to a single CD-R.

Sony VGC RB53 wont recognize blank writeable cd/dvd's


Insert a blank CD, try to burn something on to the disk, if that is successfully done than the CD drive is fine, unless you have a problem. Sometimes blank discs don't show up with direct click.

VGC-RB30 DVD/CDR DRIVE


You actually perhaps using a non blank disc at that time. Burners don't really accept non writeable Discs. Check your CD first before burning. If you are using a rewriteable disc (CD-rw) that has files, it can burn and files will be overwritten but if you're just using a CD-r with files in it, the burner will eject and will tell you to insert a blank disc.

Cd burner


You may want to double-check the "error" message. Normally, when you insert a blank CD-R or CD-R/W you'll see a pop-up message that says something like, "you've inserted a blank CD. What program do you want to use to put something on it?" And then it will give a list of programs like Windows Media Player, Nero Burning ROM, Roxio, MyDVD, etc. The last two choices are "Open a writeable folder" and "Do nothing." The next to last, the open folder, option is the CD recording option for Windows. Once you've put copies of that data into the new window click on the "burn these files to disc" link on the left side or located under the File menu at the top of the window.

Now, if it truly is telling you that you have to insert a blank CD, then you may have one of two problems. Either the CD you're putting in is NOT actually blank or the drive is having problems recognizing the media. To test the first scenario, try the disc on another computer. If it's truly blank, then try uninstalling the CD burner from your Device Manager located in the Windows control panel. Double-click on the System icon > Hardware tab > Device Manager > click on the (+) symbol next to DVD/CD-ROM drives and then highlight your Sony CD burner > right-click and in the menu choose Uninstall. Reboot your system and let Windows redetect the drive and reinstall the drivers (You may want to have any install discs handy, just in case Windows asks for them, but not likely).

I hope that helps!

HOW DO YOU CREATE A CD OR COPY A CD


Click on my computer, then insert a blank disc into the writer hard drive. Then put things you want to burn on the disc. Then burn the things on the disc. And if you have a disc copying program, Insert a blank disc into the writer drive and insert the disc you want to copy and then copy the cd.
