If the information in the HD is so important to you then give it to a company that restores data from erased HD.

I want to save my picture files on the cd or dvd tape but i cant transfer it.


You need a burning software to burn your picture files, music, or video.
You can use NERO Burning ROM. Download it from HERE. You can use the "Data Burning" Feature in it to transfer your files into CD or DVD.

HOW I DOWLOAD MY COMPUTER PICTURE TO A CD


  1. Check your computer to see that it has a CD or DVD drive that is capable of burning CDs. This drive may be built into your computer or an external drive. Either type should work equally well.
  2. Make sure you have a CD that can be burned. There are two types of CDs that you can use.
    1. A CD-R (Compact Disc-Recordable) is a Write Once Read Many (WORM) optical medium. This means that once the disk is burned it can not be erased. This type disk is usually used for permanent storage. For example; a music CD, a picture CD, or any other type of data that you want to keep permanently.
    2. A CD-RW (Compact Disc ReWritable) is a rewritable optical disc format. This type of disk can be burned, erase, and then burned again. This type disk is usually used for temporary data storage.
  3. Decide on the type of CD you plan to burn. There are many different types of CDs that can be burned and how you proceed depends on which type you are going to burn. The major types of CD that can be burned are:
    1. Music. This type of CD is the type of CD that is normaly burned for use in a home or automobile CD player.
    2. Data. This type of CD is most often used to store files that can be used by a computer. This type of CD can not be used in a standard home or automobile CD player. They are formatted using the "ISO9660" format, which cannot be read by a standard CD player.
    3. MP3. This is a data CD containing only mp3 compressed music files. Because it is actually an ISO9660 data CD, not all CD players will be able to play it. This type of CD can contain a much larger number of songs than a music CD but can only be played on a computer or CD player specifically designed to play MP3s.
    4. Disk image. A disk image file is a file that contains an exact copy of a disk. The most common type of Disk image is an .ISO image. Disk images are usually used for storing an exact copy of a CD on a computer. By using a computer, one can burn a CD from an .ISO image and create a usable CD.
    5. Ripping. Ripping a CD is the process of taking the audio off of one CD and either storing it on a computer or burning it to a second CD, thereby making a copy of the first CD.

  4. Decide on the software you want to burn your CD with. There are many different programs that are designed to burn CD's. Some are built into the computer's operating system, while others are individual programs. These programs range from very simple to very complex. Some of these are free, while others have to be purchased.

  5. Burn your CD. Burning your CD is as simple as running the software that you are going to burn your CD with, putting a CD into your CD burner, selecting the data to be burned, and then telling the program to burn the CD

How to reset my computer and keep my music at the same time?


"Resetting" will erase your drive.
Copy your music to another storage device...external hard drive or online backup storage...then wipe your computer drive, then run the resetting program or manually reinstall software, then copy your music back to the newly loaded drive.

Mp3 player freezing up when i try 2 play music player is stuck and I tried reseting doesn't fix the problem


Try reformatting the player by plugging it in your computer and when it's drive letter appears, right-click then format. It will erase all music files so you need to put the music back again and see if the problem persist. If it still persists, it might be the music source when copying. Try using direct drag and drop instead of syncing in music from a media player.

You cannot edit files *directly* on the CD/DVD. CD-RW and DVD-RW means you can "erase and re-burn" a cd or dvd, and reuse them like they were new.

You CAN however, just copy the files from the CD onto the hard drive and work from there. If you did that, sometimes files that are copied from a CD to the computer get copied with their "Read Only" flag set.

To undo that, in windows explorer, select the offending files that are on your HARD DRIVE, right click and go to Properties.

Uncheck "Read Only"

Click OK.

Now your files should be editable.

Again I emphasize that you cannot edit files directly on the CD or DVD. You can copy them to your computer, edit and change them as you see fit, and then re-burn the cd or dvd.
