Try uninstalling any Virgin Media software that may have been installed when you initially put in the disc. Most of the time the computer will get an IP address directly from the modem without needing any of the ISP software.

Try using a CD cleaner disc. dust can build up on the laser inside and they sometimes need a good clean. Just remember that computers and their components do wear out through use.

Will not recognize a blank cd or dvd inserted into the e drive. will read a data disc inserted into the same drive.


Hello
Are you using windows media player or roxio or any burning software?
You will need burning software for blank disc to be recognized.

Hope this helps.

Nothing happens when I insert the recovery disc


when it tells you to take out every disc, leave the recovery disc as it contains the files needed for it to recover your system to factory specs

How good is virgin pc total security compaired to other types.


Either of two approaches:

* enable the Windows Firewall, and use any anti-virus (free or subscription) and delete all "phishing" E-mail messages;

* install *ANY* of the "Total Security" packages, which includes firewall & anti-virus & anti-phishing components.

is *MILES* ahead of "none of the above".

So, pay your money for a "total security" package, if you are paranoid.

I purchased a pack of Memorex CD-R rrecordable 52X 700MB 80 min. discs from Staples and I was told I could use these to transfer pictures from my drive c. When I put the CD in to the drive D it asks me to...


Cd-R does not need formatting. They are ready to burn. There is probably a problem with your cdr drive.

A cd-rom drive is not a burner.

Are you sure you have a burner and not a cd-rom?

If you do have a burner, try another few disks. If it still says insert disk then your burner has crapped out.
