Do I need cdrw or dvd to burn a slideshow?


You need a blank CD or DVD to burn any time onto disc. Just depends on size of data. 700MB for CD and 4.7 GB on DVD. The WR is for rewritable disks.

I have several files on the computer which I would like to move to a CD....i.e. pictures, or documents. I am doing something wrong because it does not allow me to copy a file to a CD???? probably my lack...


You have to burn the files to a CD, if you have Windows XP or Vista it should do this for you, the reason you are getting the error is because unlike the hard drive, the CD is not a read / write device (ie once you copy files there they are there forever, unless you are using a re-recordable cd)
You must have a CD drive that is capable of recording data, this will be a CDRW or a DVDRW drive, most computers now have these, but if yours is only a DVDRom or a CDROM, you will not be able to copy.

To burn files to disc, Put a CD in the drive
Then get all the files you want to copy and put them in a folder (saves time)
Now click on the CD drive icon in MY computer (right click and open)
Drag the contents of the folder you created onto the cd drive which you have opened
You may get asked to format the disc, this is normal (prepare the disc)
You will then see the files you have added (says "files ready to be burned to disc")
Right mouse click on the empty space in the area where the files have been added and a menu will come up, with the command "burn to disc"
Once complete the disc will eject and you need to press finish

You can add about 700MB of files onto each CD

I have a memorex 700MB dvd/cd , i made a video for my family for christmas and ever type i press burn it says disc type mismatch... i need help! please.


You need to use a DVD+R disc or a DVD-R disc to burn a video. It sounds as if you have made a DVD type video and put a CD-R in the slot and your burning software is detecting that and refusing to put the data on the disc, knowing that it wouldn't play on a DVD player.
Look at the front of your dvd drive - if it has a "DVD" symbol with an oblong disc below it and says "-R -RW" then you need to use a DVD-R disc. If it has a symbol of a big "RW" then you need a DVD+R disc. If it has both, then you should be able to use either one.

80004003 error failed to burn roxio keeps poping up when I try to burn a dvd in Roxio 10 How can I fix this?


What ever computer you have, you need to update your BIOS to the latest version. Then reboot the computer and try burning another disc and see if the same message come up.

Also try a different brand of blank discs as well. That would cause that message to come up as well.

I,downloaded films got to the last stages of burning on 2 disc and it says ive got enough for temp files but the recording proc will need more


Hi,

You need to clear space on the hard drive as your burning software is unable to allocate the space needed to create a the temporary files.

Go through your hard drives and delete all the movies and stuff that you don't need or have backed up to a DVD or external hard drive.

Once you have cleared enough space your DVD software should be able to create the temp files for burning.



Regards.

Only burns the first song and stops


You need to look at how much RAM and SWAP space you have on the PC. Buffer errors are most times because you don't have enough temp space on the drive or RAM memory to complete the project.

one thing you can do is turn off all the unecessary programs that are running in the background. Also, go to CONTROL PANEL, MY COMPUTER, then choose SYSTEM. Click on ADVANCED and choose PERFORMANCE/SETTINGS. under the ADVANCED tab check VIRTUAL MEMORY to see how much temp space is allocated on the drive and increase it if necessary, or just choose to let windows manage it. Save and close it,then reboot and see if that helps.

I have a tsstcorp ts-l462d dvd/cdw combo drive factory installed in my compaq presario c501nr notebook. i cannot properly format cdrw media. only 5544mb of 700mb cdrw formatted. i used both STAPLES AND...


You will never be able to format the entire 700MB of any RW media. This is because the formatting requires a file allocation table be created and this takes up a lot of room. The data stored in this table is for addressing file segments by cylinder, track and sector. If you have a floppy disk you will notice on the diskette drawer slide it states it is a 2MB diskette but when formatted you only have 1.44MB of usable addressable space. The same is true for any formatted RW CD.

Just how much space is available after formatting a RW disc on your system depends in part on your software. It is possible to have as much as 645MB of usable space on a RW CD. Every software program is a bit different.

I hope this helps you to understand why you see this downsizing of your RW CD's usable space after formatting.

You can also bypass proprietary software and just use Windows. You paste your files to the CD drive and you'll notice a new top section in the file window pane that is titled "Files Waiting to be Written". You have to right click the right hand side of the Explorer view of your drive and then select the command, "write these files to disk". You'll probably end up with more usable space by letting Windows format it for you in this manner. However, it does depend in part on your drive's maker.
