Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have a new T420 laptop. I am trying to burn a CD from a file that is from a server. I put in a new CD-R cd but when I try to burn to the cd, I get a message stating "Please insert a blank or rewritable DVD into the MATSHITA DVD-RW (F:) drive. This is the first time I have tried to burn a CD on my new laptop. Should I be able to burn CDs in this type of drive?

SOURCE: Won't burn CD-r or DVD-R

Hi,
make sure that your program that is setup to record. i.e nero-img burn et,c. is set to look at the drive D:- Or E:- whichever letter your drive is assigned by the computer.
Also try using a different Blank-media. if any disk has failed a full write, without finalizing Or creating the Table Of Contents. It will read as Empty Or Blank. you can see This By looking carefully at the underside of the Disk, to see whether it has been burned by the laset. ( Towards The Centre ) if the Dye is darker on the inner-edge, then this is possible.
You can also try using a different Packet writing software, or re-install the program.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: pioneer dvd rw-dvr- k16RS ATA drive can't read any cds

I have the same drive, mine will read part of a cd/dvd until it gets to the outer edge of the disk. Then it complains of corrupt data, or no disk. Removing the disk didn't help.

After a little experimenting I found that the Mechanism that moves the laser radially to the disk has a problem. It seems to lock up when it gets to the outer sectors. I found that if I moved it (by hand) to the center and then reinserted the disk it would recognize the disk. I still didn't read the out edges all the time.

The solution is to replace the drive. Newegg has one

I have been informed by NERO that I should first insert the CD/DVD and then click on Make a Data Disk. This I have been following religously and the problem has overcome. But Still with each burning the size as well as the free space in the disk gets reduced substantially

SOURCE: philips DVD+RW SDVD8820 does not recognise burned CD or DVDs

it could be upper and lower filters in registry and system files, use a removal tool called filtercheck 4.6 in CDR-zone.com (goto the forums and search for filtercheck)
after you downoad, run it, click yes to all filters found to remove. close program.

reinstall your preferred burning app (1 prog installed at a time and test burn)
this is to replace the filter entry that was corrupt

Plays CD but want let me put photo on CD


Hello,

You cannot burn images or files using a CD-ROM drive, you must have a CD-ROM Writer drive to be able to burn any files on a CD and a burner software installed to your Desktop or Laptop.

Hope I was able to help.

Error code:0xeb020ba0 appears when i tried to burn files to a dvd using power to go on my laptop. help pls....


reason fro this could be bad media (disc) or the file that you are trying to copy is truncated. heres how to test which one ha a problem. try using another blank cd. if same thing happens then there is a problem with the file that you are trying to burn. now, burn a different file to a blank cd and check if you can successfully burn that file.

I am trying to burn a cd on my Acer Aspire 5536-5255 using WMP and it isn't working?


In Windows Media Player, click Library and then, in the List pane, click <List Name> List, and then click Burn List, as shown in the following screen shot.
  1. If you need to clear the list before beginning, click Burn List, and then click Clear List.
  2. Drag a folder from the Contents pane or songs from the Details pane to the List pane to create a list of songs to burn.
  3. In the burn list, drag songs up or down to arrange them in the order you want them to appear on the CD.
  4. Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW disc in the CD drive.
  5. In the List pane, verify that the songs you have selected to burn will all fit on the disc. If necessary, remove songs from the list by right-clicking a song and then clicking Remove from List, as shown in the following screen shot.

It is possible that a song will not fit even if the total time exactly matches the CD length, because the Player inserts two seconds between songs when burning. Click the Start Burn arrow and verify that Audio CD is selected, as shown in the following screen shot.
lick Start Burn.As the CD is burned, you can check its progress in the burn list. Burning a CD will take some time.Notes It is recommended that you do not try to perform any other actions while burning a CD. For example, playback may be affected if you try to play a music CD while burning a CD.

You cannot burn additional files to a CD after burning is completed. If you are using a CD-RW, you can erase the entire CD before using the Player to burn files to the CD again.

How to record from a website to cd on laptop


To burn cd/dvd you have to check :

1. Your laptop cd/dvd drive have what capability:
- cd writer = only burn cd
- cd writer/dvd reader(combo) = still only burn cd
- dvd writer = can burn cd, dvd single layer(4GB)
- dvd DL writer = can burn cd and dvd single 4GB and dual layer 8GB.
Other than those, is not possible.

2. Must have burn apps named:
- Nero
- Alcohol 120%
- other. search internet.

If you have them then using the apps to burn, just read the manual.

Koam114 is in Korean. I don't understand :)
But If you want songs from website, you should download it first.
Unless the site is giving you a step by step how to burn songs directly to your cd/dvd.
Once downloaded, would be easier to burn to cd/dvd.

Cd burn


Either the drive is bad or your using the wrong type of blank dvds.Try using DVD-R or DVD-RW for betters chances of success.Sometimes some of the new DVDs are bad.Make sure you try a couple different ones even from a new pack of DVDs.

Cd burner


You may want to double-check the "error" message. Normally, when you insert a blank CD-R or CD-R/W you'll see a pop-up message that says something like, "you've inserted a blank CD. What program do you want to use to put something on it?" And then it will give a list of programs like Windows Media Player, Nero Burning ROM, Roxio, MyDVD, etc. The last two choices are "Open a writeable folder" and "Do nothing." The next to last, the open folder, option is the CD recording option for Windows. Once you've put copies of that data into the new window click on the "burn these files to disc" link on the left side or located under the File menu at the top of the window.

Now, if it truly is telling you that you have to insert a blank CD, then you may have one of two problems. Either the CD you're putting in is NOT actually blank or the drive is having problems recognizing the media. To test the first scenario, try the disc on another computer. If it's truly blank, then try uninstalling the CD burner from your Device Manager located in the Windows control panel. Double-click on the System icon > Hardware tab > Device Manager > click on the (+) symbol next to DVD/CD-ROM drives and then highlight your Sony CD burner > right-click and in the menu choose Uninstall. Reboot your system and let Windows redetect the drive and reinstall the drivers (You may want to have any install discs handy, just in case Windows asks for them, but not likely).

I hope that helps!

Having problem installing office 2007 on Microsoft office Vista


Hi Noglao, I have experienced similar problem with my Office 2007 installation, I believe its a problem with the CD itself, there might be a scratch or something that is blocking this file from being read. Maybe even a manufacture error since I had the exact same problem with the same file. In the end I had to copy the disk to my hard drive and I moved it to a share folder on my file server. I mapped this share folder to a root(z:) on my workstation. I ran it from there and it worked just fine. If you don't have a server or can't map a folder for some reason I suggest trying another installation CD, or copy the files to your computer, burn a new CD and try it again with that CD. Good luck Daniel
