Why i can't burn dvd or cd on my computer


you will need software like NERO to burn cd or dvd select the option (burn image to disc) for mp3 cd to play on all cd players or if you try this go to your downloaded file and clik once left then once right clik then you see the option (send to) put cursor on that option then then another menu will come up then select your dvd drive if you cannot play that dvd after its burned you might need either dvd creator software or you might need a dvd player with Divx capability...you might already have dvd and cd burning software already on your pc like power producer im sure you'll get it on piratebay.org if you download utorrent first<(FREE) hope this helps be carefull of viruses on pirate bay

Dvd/CD RW+- not recognizing Dvd disk. CD is fine. Gateway GM5407E only DH16W1P161C on player. Vista Premium 32 OS


open the control panel and click on the system folder, then the hardware tab, then the device manager (you are looking for the cd/dvd rom drives).
When you find it right click on it and check all the tabs to make sure everything is working properly.

Let me know how it turns out and we can take it further if we need too.

I need a restore disk for gateway computer


From Gateway website:

Q: What if my Gateway System Recovery CD/DVD is lost, missing or damaged? A:
  • For computers shipped after November 1, 2004 and until January 2005, a patch needs to be installed. Download the patch through our FTP site at ftp://esupport:vImvF88@ftp.gateway.com/pub/hardware_support/drivers/apps/medialess/Create_DRV_APPS_CD_Update.exe. After the installation of this patch, the option to create the drivers and applications CD is available from the Start menu under Programs. However the operating system (OS) CD\DVD must be requested by e-mailing customer service.
    Note: Replacement of the operating system CD may be at a cost according to your warranty status.

  • For computers shipped between January 2005 and June 2005, the option to Create my Drivers-Applications CD(s) is already available under Programs. The operating system CD\DVD must be requested by e-mailing customer service, and may be at a cost according to your warranty status.
  • For computers shipped after June 2005, an operating system CD\DVD is included and the option to Create my Drivers-Applications CD(s) is in System Recovery. Access the program from the Start menu under Programs. This backup process through System Recovery allows you to create the applications and drivers CD\DVD as many times as needed. If the operating system CD\DVD is lost, missing, or damaged, e-mail customer service to inquire about a replacement. Please note that replacement may be at a cost according to your warranty status. If all CD\DVD's are needed, e-mail customer service to inquire about a replacement. Please note that replacement may be at a cost according to your warranty status.
Send them an email with model number from tag at the back of the computer and ask for recovery CD.

I have had this happen to me! What you are going to want to do is: Go to My Computer Right click your dvd drive (mine is "D") Left click Properties Click the tab on the top that says Hardware *It should show you all of the disk drives on your computer* Locate your DVD drive depending on the manufacturer--click on it Now that it is highlited, click Properties Click the Properties tab at the top of the box Make sure that the volume level all the way to the right If there is a check box saying "Enable sound" or something similar to that, check it If there is a check box saying something like "enable sound for DVDs" check it This should work, if not, respond again to this message! -Mster714-
