When attempting to copy blu ray disc message reads disc not detected.(emachine e525)


Although the same shape and size, Blue Ray disks are a completely different format to DVD's and CD's. You drive won't recognise them

You'll need to get a Blue ray RW drive, and it doesn't stop there. Because there a great deal more information on a blueray disk, you'll need several dvd disks to copy the info to a DVD.

Bluerays hold about 25Gb of data, DVD's hold 4.7 GB and CD's hold 700Mb data.

NEED TO READ AND WRITE TO SAME CD WITH 2 DIFFERENT COMPUTERS.


You can't. You have to install Excel onto your computers. You can then use that programme to create files, which in turn you save to your computer hard drive.

Once done you can write CD's , DVD's or more popular for file transfer a USB flash drive.

Should you wish to continue with CD's, then I suggest you use CD-RW (Re-writeable CD's)

Can not locate dvd rw drive


Either:
* the "power" cable from the computer's power-supply is not connected to the CD/DVD hardware;
* the "data" cable from the motherboard is not connected to the CD/DVD hardware -- check both ends of the cable.
* electronics inside the CD/DVD drive itself have failed.
* you have entered BIOS SETUP, and have "disabled" access to the drive.

I have a HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4040N drive in stalled in an emachine Laptop, the drive will read data,cds music and dvd movies, but can not burn either cds or dvd...Depending on which program i use for...


well there could be a few things you can try
1) update the firmware and see if it works any better
2) try brand name DVD-R disks and CD-R disks
3) try an updated hack firmware such as these http://tdb.rpc1.org/#GWA4040N
4) try Nero Lite. it is free and it supports almost any drive. http://www.nero.com/eng/downloads-nero9-free.php

I would not worry about the driver as they normmally would not need any.

Emachine EL1200 won't burn dvd's.


I researched the Emachine EL1200 and it IS equipped with a DVD burner so there is no reason it shouldn't work. Return it while it is still under warranty. There is a 1 year warranty.

If it is out of warranty (system is older than 1 year), the drive can be replaced.

How to instal a cd rom/cd rw


Hello,

The easiest thing to do is transfer the setup files for you CD-R/RW onto flash media and install from that media inserted into your EEE notebook or copy it off and onto a folder on your EEE's hard drive.

If you do not have any flash media you will need to get some as this is the way to move files on and off your subNotebook until you're on your home network and can access shared folders or drives.

If you have a SSD, then I'd install from the flash media and save the space on your SSD.

After you have installed the external drive, attach the USB cable, or when prompted to do so. Then allow Windows to add new hardware and point it to your installation files on the hard drive or flash media.

This is a basic technique with subNotebooks that don't have a DVD/CD bay or floppy for that mattter.

The trend now is to establish flash media as the defacto storage media. When I was at Office Depot the other day, they had a fish bowl at the checkout filled with 1GB SD cards for pretty cheap, under 10 bucks. I have three 2GB cards I use just for this purpose.

Once you have your subNotebook on the Internet, you can add external devices and let Windows search the Internet for installation files. MS has a huge repository of installation files it can access too, those can be slightly out of date depending on just how new your external device is.

If you get stuck let me know with the details of what failed you and how. I'll help you get through this so you can get onto your wireless router. Then it will be a cake walk to access the external drive. Or you can enable Sharing on your PC's DVD drive and add that in your Network Places. Once you've done this you can access and install the media or any program from your Shared PC DVD drive.

Any questions? just use the comment box below to ask away.

Regards,
Worldvet
