Burning data to dvd

I think my pc has viruses so I'm trying to save my pictures, music, and documents to a dvd. I tried installing sonic to do that but it keeps saying that my drivers are disabled when there not. Will I be able to save all my stuff before I redo my whole OS?

Do not redo your OS/format your drive until you have all your data,photos & docs. There are several options open to you before you lose this info, and you can't replace those photos!

If you have access to a second PC, make sure it has a good AV solution installed and up to date.
Google the following "ATF cleaner" download this and run it on the infected PC, it will clear out all Temp files etc.
turn off system restore on the infected PC, empty the reycle bin
Remove the hard drive from the "infected PC". and fit it into the 2nd PC as a slave/second drive. Then run a AV scan on the drive. Finally, creat a folder on the hard drive of the 2nd PC and "copy" all you want to keep safe, remember don't move the data just copy.Then return the infected drive back to it's PC. If the AV scan was sucessful, you might find that all is well, worse case you will have all your info/data safe & you can do your reformat and reload.
You didn't mention email and contacts, it is possible to save them also but that is an even longer solution.

Please remeber to rate this if I was of any help

Hey,

I would recommend NERO http://www.nero.com/enu/downloads-nero8-trial.php You can use the free trial to burn your files.

Thanks,

Ok lets try to remove the virus instead of reinstalling the whole OS

first download malware bytes

www.malwwarebytes.org

update it and run it.

second reinstall the DVD driver by going to your computer manufacturer website.

third try to burn the DVD

if still not working follow these steps:

press the start button.
click on run
type: regedit
click ok
follow this path

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

now when you click on that subkey you will see in the right pane
upper filter and lower filter

back them up and then delete them

reboot the computer

that should fix it

cheers

I can't copy or download photos from my Dell Inspiron B130 hard drive to a DVD+R. Should I format the DVD+R disc first? I'm a senior citizen and I'm trying to learn how to do this. Thank you! Jane


If you have Sonic or Roxio burning software installed, you can use that application and it should be able to guide you in how to burn a DVD
Essentially open the program (Sonic and Roxio are now the same company so the tool works pretty much the same regardless of what it is called)
once open, you select the type of disk you want to make (Data) then select your the pictures in the right pane, then click burn, the tool should do the rest

I have a movie in windows media player. How do i burn to cd or dvd


Hi there..

Windows Media Player does not support burning movies to video DVD discs. It does support burning data DVD discs, which could contain music and video files. However, data DVDs are typically not compatible with most home DVD players. Check your DVD player documentation for details.

How can I burn pictures onto a DVD, so ot can be


If you have a DVD burner you can use the burning software that came with the unit. Maybe "Sonic" or "Nero".
Start the burning software and drag add drop your pictures into the "burn window".

Check your DVD front door to see if it says DVD Writer or DVD ROM.
If it says ROM, then it is not a burner.

Best DVD or CD discs is Verbatim brand (OfficeMAX, best price).

Dvd-audio cd burning issue


If you are burning a "Data Disc" (the burning software should tell you or have you select it) then music will NOT work on a CD-player. It will only work in another PC.

Data disc is for files, pictures, videos, music that you want other COMPUTERS to be able to read and play.

If you want a music CD to work in a car or something like that it NEEDS to be burned as a music disc, not data.

Hope that helps.

Drive does read audio cd but not dvd.writer also can't burn any.


If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.

Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:

Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...
