Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop
I need to have one final archiving of all my data dvds which I have created over the years I have about five hundred but many of them are no longer being recognized by my DVD reader. I mainly used ROXIO but as many of you know, ROXIO realy doesn't give a damm about there problems. They will respond to your letters but they never really have any solutions. Sometimes the disk will give me error mesages, ''D'' DRIVE INCORRERCT FUNTION> Sometimes the d drive will appear and disapper on the insertion of new dvds. I can sometmes see that the file type read RAW but can not get to the files. Especially my rewrittable dvds . They ask me to format them and state that the disks is full-- as the color part of the icon shows a full disk, but the numbers say 0 as though the disk can be used again. I don't want to erase over data. I reformatted my hardrve but I still get these poblems. when the weather turns cool i INTEND to have one last week of gettting everything right, but I need a program that can read all dvd files and then I will send them to my hardrive and re write them to a more stable external hardrive.ROXIO STATES THET MEMOREX DVDS ARE PRBLEMATIB BUT I HAVE OTHERS THAT I CAN NOT READ AS WELL I NEED A RAW FILE READER THAT CAN TRANSLATE ALL DATA FILES REGARDLESS OF THE DVD BURNING PROGRAM THAT CREATED THEM.
Is that the original version of Windows you made them with?Since I do not know,I am just looking through mine to see what I can come up with.If your current computer is the 1 you made them with,all the rest is probably just wasting time,however,desperate times call for desparate measures right?Try right clicking on your shortcut to your DVD drive,with a disc in.Click on properties.See if it allows you to change or even select a version of Windows to change to under previous versions or at least look around and see what that will let you do.This is really starting to grasp at straws but something has to be done or you will lose alot of info.If you don't mind me asking what is on those DVD's?Also on control panel,hardware and sound option,under autoplay there are some options to play with there.Under system and security option,click system,click device manager,and see what it says about your DVD player.Under system and security,click in administrative tools,click on create and format hard disk partitions,I guess without disc in yet so you do not accidentally overwrite,it opens up a window where you can selct C,D,or E(as I said I labeled mine that),and there are actions you can do from there.Action,all tasks,properties,customize may force it to read.uh uhuh I am out of breath.Like I said,grasping at straws here.Good luck!I would like to hear back from you too.
