No, you cannot reformat CD-R (CD rom) nor you cannot modify the contents of a CD-Rom. The File system of a CD-R is Read Only Memory (ROM).
And you can Reformat a CD-R/W (Re-writeable).

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to reformat my acer netbook ZA3, when the time i started to perform the reformating... the "BOOTMGR is missing" appered on the sceen.


Usually that isnt an issue with the computer but what you are reformatting it with, if you are using a live usb CD or a CD to reformat try making a new copy, I constantly run into that error when im trying to get my Acer Aspire to boot to a linux build on my USB. Most of the time it can be fixed by re-doing the process or using a diffrent tool to burn the iso onto the CD/USB

What does FS error 050 mean?


It's a File System error on the Hard Disk. I think the only solution may be to reformat the disk. If you're only getting this on one track on one playlist, you may be able to access the other playlists to burn all other tracks to CD so you don't lose them

ASUS desktop help!


Three possibilities:

1. when you start your computer, there could be a message "press BLAH to start SYSTEM RECOVERY". If so, then do so, and you may be able to reinstall Windows.

2. before you reformatted, there could have been a program on your computer that allowed you to burn your own "System Recovery" sets of CD/DVD disks.
Too late now to run that software!

3. Contact ASUS. Since your computer was factory-loaded with a Microsoft OS, they may be able to provide you with a replacement set of CD/DVD disks.

Hi Johnson, I think the best bet would be to reformat your disk and that you need a windows cd or download it from the internet. Are you using Windows XP? This normally happens when you remove a disk from one pc and put it into another pc, it tells you you have a disk error, only with windows XP! Best of luck , Sir John

How do i reformat?


You are accessing the DOS command via your OS so of course your drive is in use.

Use the original install disc to reformat.

Computer- reformat


In order for the computer to work, and for you to reformat the harddrive, you will need a bootable disk, either one which has a drive utility on it in order to reformat and partition the harddrive or an operating installation disk which includes a drive utility (any windows installation disk has it) - without one you will neither be able to properly reformat the harddrive nor install an operating system on it in order to use the computer.

As you have stated, this is obvious, and your problem is that you do not have an installation disk. A restore disk would not help if you reformatted the harddrive.

You can either purchase a Windows operating system disk, find one (no, not anything illegal - I have spare copies of windows and all of my geek friends have spare copies, because frankly of issues like this),

or download a copy of Linux and burn it to a cd - Ubuntu is a decent choice for a starting Linux user, and is very easy to use (works alot like windows, has tutorials, etc) and is completely free - you can do a search for Ubuntu Linux on google and you will be able to download a copy which can be burnt to disk or request a disk be sent to you, though I cannot remember if they still send free Ubuntu disks out.

Linux typically runs very well on limited resource computers such as the one you are in possession of. Did I mention it was free? If nothing else, you can use it to reformat the harddrive using their Live Boot disk - it allows you to use the Ubuntu operating system without installing it. You boot from the cd and can use their harddrive utility, or install Linux to the harddrive, or just check it out to see how it works.

Tascam 788


Hi,

Sorry to hear about your problem. A number of things could cause this error to appear including bad sectors on the hard drive (which will require a reformat).

Two things you can check though before getting into replacing or reformatting the drive (which will erase all of your data) are 1) Make sure the power adapter hasn't failed. A bad or incompatible adapter won't provide enough power to the drive when it tries to spin up and could cause this error. You can try a replacement after-market adapter but you'll have to match the specs in the manual. 2) You can open up the 788 and inspect the two wires connecting the disk drive to the motherboard. One is power and the other will be an IDE ribbon cable. If either is loose that could be the cause of your problem.

If you do determine that the drive is bad you'll need to remove the drive, hook it up to a PC and reformat it there. Then reinstall it in the 788 which will upon bootup automatically reformat it again with Tascam's proprietary disk format. You can optionally replace the drive. I believe Tascam's site has a list of drives which are compatible with the 788. Reformatting (or replacing) the drive will obviously cause all of your data to be lost, but should get your 788 working again (if a bad format was the problem).

One thing of note if the drive format being bad turns out to be the problem is that Firmware versions 1.07 and below have a bug which can cause bad sectors to corrupt the drive after delete operations. If you have a firmware version which is 1.07 or below you should upgrade to a newer revision or you'll risk corrupting the drive again in the future. You can get the upgrade and instructions on how to apply it here: http://www.tascam.com/products/788;9,16,132,19.html

Best of luck and hopefully it's just a loose connection or a bad power adapter.

bd.

I get a black screen that says a disk read error occured press ctrl alt del to restart


The problems is with your hard driver

First check the hard drive data cable and power cable are plug in well
Is that is ok

So you have to try to reformat the hard drive and reinstall a opertaing system (using a Operating system CD Or Boot able Disk)

IF it is not working you have to replace a new hard disk

Lacie 250GB external HD (Error Code - 1309),


For systems prior to OS X; error -1309 fileBoundsErr: file's EOF offset mark or size is too big If your disk is formated as HFS rather than HFS+, you can get this error. For OS X; Error 1309 is a file bounds error. In other words there is some discrepancy with the file's size or end-of-file marker, or some variation on this. This sounds like a read error not a write one i.e the problem lies with the original file. Now, you may ask, "How do I make it HFS+?"... You would have to reformat the drive to change the formatting to HFS+ (Extended). Backup anything you can't replace on that disk, then use Disk Utility in your Utility folder to reformat the disk. Use Extended formating option.
