Hi. DVD drive will depend on the disc you inserted to that drive. There is no way to clear DVD drive unless the disc is re-writable media. The D drive that you are seeing must be your harddrive that have been partitioned.

This model of computer does not have a blu-ray drive unless you got a third party upgrade. In this case, you will need to track down special drivers, which can best be done by whomever sold you the drive.

Memorex DVD-RW (4X 4.7GB) disks keep closing record sessions and cuts off at about 1:39 minutes.

Hi. Sounds like you are maxing out your recording space on your disc.1:39 sounds like the capacity of a single layer DVD-RW. You can confirm this by putting the disc into a computer and checking the "properties" of the DVD. Go into "My computer" [ldouble click], highlight DVD drive [rightclick] then select "properties"[left click]. the pie chart will show you graphically space remainig on the disc

I have installed an extra 1G memory but it has not

Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse-click on the 'C:' drive.
Click 'Properties'.
A pie-chart will display, showing how much disk-space is "used"
and how much is "available".
Probably, the "available" pie-slice is less than 5% of the whole pie.

What Windows did was to "expand" the "paging" file, making it 1GB larger than it was before you added the RAM. So, the amount of "used" space on your C: drive is now 1GB _more_ than before.

So, burn some CD/DVD disks with some of your files,
and then delete the files, after checking that the disks are readable, to make more "free" space on your 'C:' drive.

My drive c is full and drive d is empty on acer aspire 5633 wlmi what can i do

If your recycle bin holds any unnecessory files deleted previously, clean it. A file deleted normally goes to the recycle bin and doesn't give you back the space it holds. Thus to free that space you need to clear the recycle bin.

If the above method is not helpful open my computer right click your C: drive and click properties. You will find a disk Clean up button near the usage pie chart graph click it. It will calculate space to be cleaned and a disk clean up window appears in the files to delete list box select your choices. At this stage if you don't need your previos restore points except for the last one, it would free more space. To do that click on the more options tab at the top of the form and at the bottom you will see system restore. Click the Clean up button and confirm your action. Wait a while the buttons might not be responive at most for a minute depending on your computer's speed. Now move your mouse over the Ok button if it is active click Ok. This will give you some space back.

Otherwise Back up your files to the D drive first. What you do is copy the files from where you stored them to the D drive first. When done copying Delete the files on the C drive using Shift Key + Delete. ( I prefer copying than moving the through the cut command, because if in case the operation aborts in the middle of the process of moving, you will find it very hard to keep yor folder organizations as they were.

My disk will not allow me to add doc. It says there is not enough free space. But I've only got a few docs on it.

Insert it in a USB 2.0 port. Wait until computer recognizes it. Open the computer explorer (Click on My computer icon on desktop). Right click the SanDisk drive icon and select Properties. You should be able to see a pie chart of the contents of the drive (free space/used space). You will also see the total capacity.
It is not the number of documents that counts, but the total weight (number of MB of the lot). A single movie may occupy 4 GB of disk space.

Hope it helps.

Chances are you have chosen 'stroke' color as 'blank/empty' in the first pie chart, and 'stroke' color as 'black' in subsequent charts, by mistake. So as a result the charts are having a black outline. You simply have to select 'stroke' or 'outline' color as blank as you did in the first chart. Colors can be chosen in the 'swatches' palette, either for 'fill' or 'stroke' or both. Hope this solves the problem.
