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...

Softwear wont install im trying to add a printer


Try to copy the software disk on the Hard Disk and run the setup. If this procedure won't continue to copy the software disc then try to copy another CD/DVD Drive to make sure it run and work with your printer.
Good luck!

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.

Hello here! i have tried to install my lexmark x5150 to my compacq laptop, and cant get it to print, i have installed the disc countless times wiyh out any progress can you help?


Try this:
first uninstall the disc's software
than restart the laptop
if correct it will automaticly detect your printer and ask for the disk.
cancel the installation.
Insert the disk and cancel the automatic running program for installation.
go to start, printers, add new printer and follow the steps from there untill it says "have disk" click on have disc and brose to your CD drive. It will automatically indicate which program it requires, search on the disc that program and click OK and continue the steps.

Reason: automatic installations from manufacturers sometimes do not install all files needed by windows, installing via windows itself it will automaticcaly pick the correct files from the disc.
