Trying to add a new printer but machine isn't picking it up or even reading the disc. At other times I can't backup onto CD as the screen keeps telling me that no CD is inserted. Can you help?

It sounds like your CD drive might be close to failing. If it cannot read the driver CD that came with your printer, that is the first sign...but if you are trying to burn to it (the backup you were talking about) and it fails to detect a blank CD, that is sign #2. A quick way to prove or disprove this is to put the CD into another computer. If it reads it - you have a bad CD drive on the original PC. Until you replace that drive, the only way to get that printer installed is via the web. Reply with the Make & Model of your printer and we will direct you to the right site. Hope this helps...

Radio works fine. cd player wont read discs in either of four slots. Message - Disc error.


This can often be solved by opening the cover and blowing on the optical head to displace dust and any debris that is fouling between the optics and the actuator that controls the head position. It isn't fool proof but will fix perhaps 40% of units. Take a can of air duster (aerosol blower) and blow the little pick-up form the distance of about 1 inch. It will bounce around in the wind but don't blow to hard. Give it a gentle blast and then try the player. If it doesn't work then try again this time but blow harder.

It looks like you'll have to either return it or perform a default factory recovery. These instructions are from their site but proceed knowing that this will erase any data that is stored on the primary partition (meaning if you have anything on it, it's gone...). Esentially it resets it to a point as if you just picked it up in the store (which you did.. :( )


How can I restore my computer with the backup discs I created?
With user created backups you are able to restore your computer to the factory default settings. If backup discs were created instead of factory restore discs, these can be used instead and will restore the system to a user backup point.
    If you have a recovery disk:

    With user created backups you are able to restore your computer to the factory default settings. If backup discs were created instead of factory restore discs, these can be used instead and will restore the system to a user backup point.
    1. Ensure that the computer is completely shutdown, then turn on the computer.
    2. When the eMachines splash screen appears, tap the Alt and F10 keys simultaneously. A screen stating "Starting eMachines eRecovery" should appear.
    3. From the recovery options, choose Restore system from CD/DVD.
    4. Insert either the first Recovery or Backup disc that you created.
    5. From the on-screen options, choose a backup.
    6. Click OK and the installation will begin.
    7. Change the disc as necessary when prompted.


      If you do not have a recovery disk:

    8. Restart the computer.
    9. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
    10. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
    11. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.

My disks are DVD-RW and want tp use them over gain and don't know how. Also when do I finalise then and what for


For RW discs, you need to reformat them to reuse them. For your laptop, you should see a format option if you right click on the DVD icon when you have the File Explorer open to Computer (My Computer). (This assumes that the computer has a DVD writer.)

Finalizing the disc enables the contents of the disc to be read on other DVD players. (This isn't always an issue. For example, a disc burned with WinXP should be readable for a computer with Windows 7 without finalizing. However, if the disc was burned by a DVD player, the contents will not be accessible on any other units without being finalized.)

If the disc has been finalized, you need to take another step before reformatting the RW disc. Put the disc in the unit that initially finalized it. Then look for an Unfinalize option. Then format the disc again. (I've never used this feature on my computer. It's easily accessed on my DVD recorder in the same section of the submenu as finalizing the disc.)

I hope this helps.

Trying to do a backup it says there is not enough disk space available when there is plenty


Probably need more info, such as what utility you're using and where you're trying to back up to. If you?re trying to back up to a CD, make sure it is a fully functional CD-R/W or other writable drive. In most cases folks will try to copy directly onto a CD that is not formatted or to a disc that has been finalized (made readable on other computers), with little or no data on it. Once finalized the "available" disc space is inaccessibly. If you think this is the case, format a new CD-R or CD-R/W disc and try your backup again. If you are trying to back up several directories, such as /My_Documents, you may indeed have too much data for a CD to handle; particularly if you have subdirectories you forgot you had. Try backing up smaller chunks of data to see if that helps. If it does, you can back up several times, or gradually increase the data amount to maximize the disc space usage.

Unabble to copy onto a CD-R disc


While you write on cd first time, there is a option, whether you mant to make it a multisession ( add files later ) or not.

you have to make it multisession on the first time of write.

If you did not do it, then, you can not add files after the first burning.

Hope it is clear to you. if not please comment with your question here or make a Rating if your problem is solved :D

When you place the CD, you need to close the CD tray by pressing the button below the CD tray. Click on Start on the screen and go to my computers and see if you are able to see the CD. if you are on the net, we can chat online and i can guide you.

Its possible that the disc has gotten too rough to be read right. Something you can try doing is making a copy of the disc if you have a CD burner. Sometimes the software that CD burners use are a little more sensitive than just the regular windows reading software. Make a copy of the disc then try using it like you did the orginal. Just be sure you keep the orginal copy, just in case.
