Question about HP PC Laptops

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.

Jeff

      Access the Internet from another computer that has a CD burner installed. If you have other user accounts on the main computer, you can attempt to log in to those accounts just to get to the Internet.

      Download Ophcrack, a highly rated free password cracker for Windows. The website has been included in the References section at the end of this article. For easy access, download the file to the computer's Desktop. You will be downloading the ISO image of the program which can be burned onto a blank CD-R.


    • Proceed according. God bless you

      Insert the blank CD-R CD. Select the ISO image of Ophcrack that you just downloaded, and right click on the item. Select 'Burn' from the drop down menu. If a burn program opens, click Burn Disc to burn the program to the CD-R.

    • 4
      Remove the burned disc, and go back to the original computer that you are locked out of. Turn on the computer, and immediately insert the disc into the CD-ROM drive.
      This will allow the computer to boot from the CD-ROM. You may be prompted in DOS to boot from the CD-ROM, select "Yes."

    • 5
      Allow Ophcrack to run; it will run automatically and display the administrator and user password on the screen as it recovers them. Write down the passwords, and wait for the program to finish.

    • 6
      Remove the burned disc, and restart the computer. Allow the computer to load to the sign in screen, and enter the newly recovered password. You should have full access to your Administrator account once again.

How to download mp3 music into the dvd disc


You can burn the mp3 music files to a DVD disc. Just burn the mp2 files as normal data files.
Some CD players can play mp3 music files but they need to be burnt onto a CD disc NOT a DVD disc.

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.

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.

Boot Disc's Not reading, Dvd rom help? or Xp/vista help?


How did you made it boot to the disc? if you used keystrokes to do so, it would be better if you go into your BIOS and set the boot priority making the dvd drive as priority and see if it is gonna work that way. If it does'nt you need to be concerned about the drive itself, it might be having problems as well.
