Won't read dvd

I changed hard drive, added memory and a new video card. My friend took my old hard drive to retrive the info and put it on a dvd. It now won't reconize the dvd or any dvd I put in. I changed cables uninstaled and re-started cd/dvd,but a message "insert disk in drive" whenever you put one in. It still plays and rips cd but the sound quality seems to have suffered and it just started when I changed the hardware. I have installed windows media 11 and all drivers. I know this isn't an easy one
Thanks

I'd say that this is caused by whatever program was used to do the DVD backup..you'll need same program, to most likely unencrypt that data, no?

While taking pictures my camera all of a sudden froze and said card error, tried putting memory card on computer but it won't read it have tried using recovery programs but it freezes them please help


If your memory card is 4GB or larger, AND if your computer is two or more years old, your computer's card reader might not be able to read the newer 4GB SDHC card. In that case, just purchase an inexpensive USB card reader from WMart, or Amazon (here's an example). Try a different card reader first to see if you can directly copy and paste the pictures from the card onto your hard drive. If the new card reader doesn't see the files, then try recovery software. Here's some freeware to try. If the software still doesn't see the card with the new card reader, you may next need to try the corrupted card procedures described at the bottom of this linked article.

Im having a problem with my Micro SD 4gb Memory card for my Samsung Intensity phone. I put it in my computer & it read just fine then I took it out & put it back in when the file for it wasnt...


simple rule....when a device / drive is reading a media (say CD disk, pen drive, memory card etc) never pull it out....

it spoils the media....

frequent changes to any media device will hamper it's quality and efficiency.....

the recent micro cards are so sensitive that even a small mis handling / hard handling will make it corrupt.....

the best option...buy another one...

Hi Tom,
I suggest that you use the one marked IDE1, unless you have your hard drive on that port. I assume it's one of the sata's. But, make sure that your DVD drive has it's pin's set right. If it's going to be the only DVD drive on the machine, and your hard drive is a sata, then make that DVD drive the master pin set, if your Hard drive is a ide drive, then make sure that your hard drive is set to master and then your dvd will be set to slace. If you place the hard drive on the white slot, and the dvd drive on the green or colored slot, then you can choose cable select on both drives. But when you make it Master and Slave it doesn't matter which IDE you use, the pin tell the computer what is what.

Good Luck,

mark

I had a Nokia Music Xpress phone on a t-Mobile plan. I took the mini SD Cars and put it in my new phone the LG Xenon, which is an AT&T phone but unlocked for T-mobile. I am trying to get the info off...


It wont. A memory card cant be switched from phone to phone. I had to put my memory card back in my old phone & put all the info (music & pics) onto my computer in a file. Then put the memory card into your new phone & go to that phones settings and it should ask you to format the card for that specific phone(which means ERASE) so a memory card cant back & forth keeping same info & reading info on different phones. So the only way to save your info is put in a file on comp then let your new phone reformat it so it can work then hook that phone up to your computer & put all the info BACK on there.

Computer video went out while in the middle of something. Tried to restart- hard drive makes proper sounds but still no signal. Checked to make sure all cables were still in, turned monitor on and off....


pull out the memory modules and power up the pc. It should make a series of beeping sound, indicating the motherboard as operational, and it could be a case of defective memory. Otherwise, I would say the board is defective.
