Refer Acer m3970 Can not Install windows 7 of new hard drive


Factory back-up discs and recovery discs are intended to repair defective installations or to kick-start an installation that refuses to start so it is unsurprising they will only go so far.

Your system disc might be defective. This is a problem I have had with XP in the past. It is possible your CD/DVD drive has a dusty lens and is unable to read the disc properly or perhaps the new hard drive has a problem.

I suggest you instal the new hard drive as a slave in another computer and format it and run the chkdsk utility. If all is well reinstal in your computer.

Take a close look at your system disc checking for flaws and perhaps put a lens cleaning disc in your CD/DVD reader before trying again.

How to resolve Xbox 360 disc read errors. Xbox will not play disc.


Is your xbox360 having trouble reading disc? In this guide I will provide some common solutions to help you fix your disc read issues.

1)Remove any memory devices or usb flash drives.
2)If the disc you are using is excessively scratched, this can cause the xbox to have trouble reading the disc. You can use a damp soft cloth to try and clean the disc. Grab the disc by the edges and using a soft damp cloth lightly wipe the disc from the center going outward.

3)Try removing your Xbox hard drive and then play a disc. Turn off the console. Locate the hard drive on the top of your system(depending on how you have it positioned). Press the release button on the hard drive.

If your system can read disc without the hard drive attached then you may need to replace the drive.

4)Clear the Xbox360 cache. Clearing the cache may remove updates to certain games. Keep this in mind.
Go to System Settings in the My Xbox menu. Select Memory, highlight your storage device and select Clear System Cache. Try and play the disc.

If after the above steps you are still having trouble. You may want to contact Microsoft Xbox live support to have your system serviced. You can find the support information in the link below,

IMac won't read Imation 160GB Apollo 2.5


Mac's won't read windows format disc, even if it's capable of reading the files wich I believe Newer Mac Operating Systems CAN DO, it can not read the file SYSTEM used to place them on the disc. You need a third computer. Put the files on a nother computer or two if you need the room or on another media or pocket drive. Use a program that VERIFIES the were moved without errors while copying them, the use the Mac to format the now empty disc drive and download Mac Pooler, or File Stuffer, and copy the files back onto the disc. Now the Mac will be able to read the drive they're on.

You have a dirty laser or bad laser easy way to tell is to take your 360 apart and take the disc drive apart with the disc drive apart hook it back up to the 360 make sure to put the bottom shell back on the disc drive so you dont ground it out on the console. Look at your laser while it tries to read games. IF it produces a red beam try wiping it off with a qtip and rubbing alchol if that doesnt work you need a new laser which cost less then $10 on ebay. Hope this helps.

My PS3 won't read the games or DVD's. Is the hard drive frozen or broken? My Son is very diappointed that he will lose all his game history? Can anyone help?


if the ps3 wont read DISC games the BD drive in the ps3 is bad and needs to be replaced. I would suggest you call Sony and have them replace the drive if the ps3 is still under warranty.

since the BD discs are read only and nothing is stored on them like game saves, your son wont lose any saves he has becasue they are stored on the ps3 hard drive.

i would suggest if you do send the console to sony i would back up the contents of the drive just incase they decide to wipe it clean.

you can perform a backup from the setting menus on the ps3.

Unplayable disc support


Ive Answered A question Exactly Likethis..

So whats causing this problem eh?

Well this problem is down and due to your Xbox360 Because the Pressure magnet inside your Hard drive is Sticking to the game <-- basically the magnet is a holder inside your hard drive a little handy device that makes your game not fall so its Rumaging around in your Hard Drive Loose Thats why when people KNOCK down there Xbox360's when there up and ON with a DISC inside. Thats how they get SCRATCHED.

What tools do i need to fix this problem?? Read below.

You Need EITHER : A Credit Card
A Peice of strong Paper i.e thin card board
A Xboxlive Subscription Card

Either one of those things to do the job.

Step 1. Make sure THERE IS a disc inside your Hard Drive And Keep the DISC TRAY CLOSED.

Step 2. Point the Card Infront of your Disc Tray And Move it to the Left and Put it in the Gap. and Move it to the left and right abit. Basically Wiggle it about inside your Xbox. ** This Does Not Void Warrenty , Cause Disc Failure , Or Scratch Discs. **
Anything that does Break will be your own fault for not following Instructions.

Step 3. Once inside and you've wiggled it about for 2 - 3 minutes... It will Unloose the Magnet Causing your game to come undone and then you " EJECT THE GAME " I repeat " EJECT THE GAME " from the DISC Tray. and Place it back in. and start up the game and then it should get past Loading Screen etc. and Be fixed.

Now I cannot guarentie that this will stay like this for along time. so I suggest you get your Xbox Fixed VIA Warrenty If you still have 1year. if you Foolish People Brought yours off Ebay then I have a solution too.

Pop down to GAME and Sign up for there Unlimited Warrenty xbox360 for £50 - £60 a Month. or Year i carnt remember. It might be a year.
And Theyfix it for you.

And I suggest you ALL DO THE SAME! :)

Thanks For Reading this Solution. I do Very Hope this has helped you people.

Please Rate me Etc. :) Thanks
