Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Unwanted disc finalization.

Dear Sir/Madam,
I want to be able to back up my music downloads onto a blank disc as I go along, but after a short burn has finished, (with plenty of space still left on the disc), the disc finalizes and so I can't add any more files to it.
I have tried cancelling 'eject disc after burn has finished' and also 'close session after burn' but this hasn't solved the problem.
I would greatly appreciate your help with this.
Yours faithfully,
James O'Neill.

Hey Jim - what program are you using to burn your disks? There is an option depending on how your burning them that you can check that allows you to add more data,files,etc. after each burn. Let me know which program you're using and which ones you have and I'll tell you how to do it. Thanks.

How do I dowload music onto my computer and then burn it onto a cd?


You'll need to purchase music from an online site such as Itunes. You will also need a blank CDR. Once your music is loaded into Itunes it is as simple as clicking the burn to cd icon.

You can also use any CD burning software to burn any music files to dvd. Online Virus Removal and PC Help Contest

How to burn a dvd from an acer laptop


The laptop should have come with CD/DVD burning software preloaded. Acer's specs page for your model says it comes with NTI Media Maker. The program will have help information available to guide you through, and you can find more help online. If you just want to write data files onto a DVD, the process typically is not much more than dragging files to a layout window and telling the program to burn the disc. This gives you a way to back up data, or to store movies in formats you can view on a computer (AVI, MPG, etc.).

On the other hand, if you're asking how to make a video DVD that will play in a regular DVD player like a commercial movie, maybe with features like menus or scene selection and such, the process for making that kind of DVD is more involved. You need some DVD authoring software. NTI may offer that capability, but I'll admit I have never looked.

In most cases, the software that comes preloaded on computers is a limited version of some commercial product. The computer manufacturers get paid to include the program, and the software company hopes you'll buy the full version when you discover the limitations. If you don't want to pay for software, there are free, more full-featured programs available for downloading.

For general CD and DVD burning, I use CDBurnerXP. To make video DVDs, I use a program called DVDStyler. Both are open-source, meaning they are 100% free to download and use, and they both offer a lot of features.

I have an HP Pavilion mx704 desktop PC 2005 model, and I can not burn music onto a CD. This computer has a CD burner, and when I start burn of the downloaded song, it says insert disk, I put a blank CD-R...


What OS and burn software are you using? Can you see the music files when you look at the file explorer on the computer (My Computer or Computer in Windows and double click on the optical drive)? Check if the disc has any scratches.

If you see the music listed on the optical disc, check if the disc was finalized. (Again in Windows Computer, right click on the optical drive and it should be an option if the disc hasn't been finalized.)

If there are no files on the CD-R, make certain that the disc isn't being formatted before you try the burn. (Formatting should only be done on R/W discs.)

If the music files are on the optical disc and the disc was finalized, your CD player is not tracking across the disc properly. Try a lens cleaner. It may need repair and I've never successfully repaired a CD drive (the only ones I've had fail were in computers and were cheaper to replace). The mirror and the belt are the most likely places to have issues.

I hope this helps.

There is a chance that your program automatically closed the session on the disc. If it does this there is no further burning allowed. Your best bet is to copy the image from the disc onto the computer, then using your program erase your re-writable disc. When burning the images onto your disc be sure the option is not checked to close the disc.

DVD will not finalize


Bad Disk batch is the most common problem if it is occuring with the same batch of dvds. Other problems could include that you need to get a firmware upgrade for higher speed discs. If you are using a disc that burns faster than the current speed of the machine you need to download the upgrade (follow the directions that are given in most dvd blank packs) and insert the CD that you downlaoded the program onto into the DVD player/recorder.
