I have a dell 755 that the CD drive won't play certain CD's. It is not the CD because it plays on other machines. Some CD's will play just fine. Get's the error message Unable to Access Drive D tr


it depends on the files on the cd ...they might require a certain software to be installed in order to be read..for example the player may not be able to read mp4 without a codec installed ..or vcd (video cd ) to need a dvd player installed or a player that supports video cd and dvd-es..Same way for other file types...or ...certain speeds being imposed on writing ..and your cd drive to be unable to read them on those speeds..

When I try to defrag my pc I get a message that says "Disk Defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume (C:). Please run CHKDSK/f. Don't know how to do this


above statements are right you may also run disc defrag to your system
click start/controlpanel/Administrative Tools/computer management/storage/disk defragmenter
then select or highlight the drive where your operating system is installed
click defragment

Packard bell imedia S1710 memory problem


No it is not normal for Win7... it should be the opposite... Win7 Memory Management is better than any other systems. I would do maintenance... clean out temp files and clean and defrag the registry. Glary Utilities works great for that or CCleaner. Then Defrag. Maybe just a false message caused by a bad temp file. If it continues I would have issues with the Hardware and seek a warranty replacement. Side note: turn off or uninstall products on the system you won't use.

Hp Pavilion a1620n, XP Edition. I Can't defrag my recovery drive.


Unfortunately you will need to do exactly what it states, which is free up some space. Defragging a drive requires there to be an ample amount of "swap space" available so that it can move files into that 15% of space while it rearragnes the placement of other files and puts them back in an order which will provide faster access to the files after the defrag is complete. being that it is your D: drive, can't you just move some files to your C: drive to make enough space for the defrag??

Please be sure to rate this solution.

Regards,

Joe

How can i change the format that my "magix Photostory CD & DVD" program burns my pictures/music to a DVD that WILL play on a home DVD player and not just a computer? I have a Windows XP


There are three ways to create a Video CD (VCD) that contains your photo stories:
You can obtain Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in Photo Story 2 by going to Play your story or create a video CD of your story and then create a VCD.using the Photo Story 2 Video CD-burning feature.
• You can obtain Microsoft Digital Image Suite 10 or above and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in the Photo Story that comes with the Digital Image Library and save and burn to VCD.
• You can obtain VCD-authoring products that work with Photo Story files, such as MyDVD by Sonic Solutions or InstantCD\DVD by Pinnacle Systems. You can use these software to convert the Windows Media video (WMV) files into files that can be copied to a DVD and played in a DVD player.
Note: VCD and DVD-authoring software is not included with Photo Story 3.

Computer wont download files, wont let AVG upload new files, redirects me to sites I am not looking for will not let me restore, defrag, play dvds or games. I think i've been high jacked! HELP!!!!


Sounds like you have a MAJOR spyware and or virus infestation. You can try using Spybot to clean the spyware, but usually when it's bad as you're explaining, your best bet is to backup your files to an external or flash drive and wipe the computer, reinstalling a clean copy of Windows (or system restore / system recovery, depending on what software came with the computer).

Remember, even if you get rid of all the spyware, which is doubtful at this point - you still don't undo the damage that the spyware has done, so you may not be any better off after cleaning.

Hope this helps - good luck and remember to rate!
