I will bet anything the computer you have is an Acer Laptop.

Try this:
1. Go to www.driverstock.com and download from the site 'elock'.
2. Install and run the program.
3. It will ask you for a password, type one in. (any - just write what you wrote down)
4. Then click on the items and lock them. (Yes I said lock them)
5. Then click on site you want to unlock and enter the password again.
6. All the sites that acer elock had locked will be unlock.

Front panel on machine just reads ..disc not finalised.what does this mean please?


Are the discs ones that you created (burned), someone else burned, or commercial discs? The message of disc not finalized usually appears when you put a CD or DVD from one unit into anther without closing (finalizing) the disc. The finalization step doesn't matter if the disc is being moved between computers with compatible OS versions (for example: XP through Windows 7). However, any other device will need this procedure completed.

Take the disc back to the unit (computer or other burner) where the disc was burned. If the computer uses Windows, put the disc in the optical drive. Open My Computer (Computer) depending on the OS by double left-clicking on the icon on the desktop. Right click on the optical drive and select Close Session.

If you created the CD on another machine, check the details for that device.

Note: you should double-check that the format that you burned to disc is compatible with this CD player. Not all models support MP3 files. On my own older CD player, I had to burn WAV files without gaps in a Disc At Once format to get the discs to play without skips.

I hope this helps.

(if the discs were commercial discs or have been finalized, I would expect a different error. In that case, I'd suspect a tracking problem and a "No Disc" error.)

Hiya. how come certain files dont copy to my san disk cruzer slice? there comes a message saying 'type of file error' and it tells me to skip.please help me out as i need to back up some files.thaks


If you KNOW what file types these are (eg: .doc or .jpg) try making a copy of one, rename it to the appropriate file and see if that works

(example, you have a word file that is say.. me.doc. make a copy, call it me2.doc, delete the file extension (.doc) then rename it with the file extension again before saving it.. Sometimes this works.

If that does not work, try copying to a different usb disc or device, if it does work, you should reformat and check the san disc for potential future failing

Computer does not recognize it as a CD RW drive


When you try to write data to an optical disc, you may experience any of the following symptoms:

* You receive various disc write error messages.
* You experience issues with the drive and the built-in recording feature of Windows XP.
* You experience issues with third-party programs that you use to write data to the disc.
* You cannot read the disc in all versions of Windows.
* You cannot read the disc, or some files on the disk, by using an MP3 player.
* When you add files or folders to a disc that already contains data, some files are lost.
* Recording files to the disc is inconsistent.
* The disc recording operation is consistently unsuccessful.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Troubleshooting specific errors
If you experience one of the following errors, follow the appropriate steps to resolve the error.

* There is no disc in the drive. Please insert a writable CD into drive.
This error can occur if the CD-R drive or CD-RW drive is not recognized as a recordable device. This error can also occur if the device driver has been corrupted. To resolve this issue, see Method 3 in the "General troubleshooting" section and Method 1 in the "Advanced troubleshooting" section.

* Drive not accessible, incorrect function
This error message typically occurs when you try to write to a CD-R or a CD-RW, and the Windows XP built-in disc recording feature does not recognize the CD drive as a recordable drive. This error message may also occur if specific third-party programs are installed. For more information about how to troubleshoot this error,

when you access the CD-ROM drive, the DVD-ROM drive, or the CD-RW drive
* Error Deleting File or Folder.
Cannot delete file name. Files on this CD-ROM drive are read-only. You cannot copy or move files over to this CD-ROM drive.

This error message can occur because individual files cannot be deleted from the CD-RW. You cannot use the CD disc recording feature of Windows XP for random-access storage while you are writing to disc.

To set the service to Automatic, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc /s, and then click OK.
2. Double-click IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service.
3. Under Service Status, click Start.
4. Try to write data to a CD.

'bad disc' error message comes up every time I


Your optical pickup drive lens is dirty or needs to be replaced.  Run a DVD disc cleaning kit through it and see if that helps.  If not, then you have to open this thing up and clean the lens with a bit of rubbing alcohol and then try.  If that don't work you can either kick it to the curb or replace the optical lens.
