In case "silly girl" instruction will not solve your problem - right click my computer>properties>hardware>device manager>right click on your burner drive>properties>driver>uninstall. GO back to the device managger window, click 0n "action" and then on "Scan for hardware changes". The OS should find your burner and install back its drivers properly. Good luck.

It could be that it needs a lens cleaner or realigning, but try this and see if it cures it, sometimes it works. If it still persists go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall. restart the notebook and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically.

Mp4 touchscreen is froze what will i do?


The problem with your MP4 Touchscreen is the storage (memory card). There could be some bad sectors in the storage that's why it was not detected by the computer everytime you're plugging it.

If the device is still under the warranty, you need to contact the manufacturer and have them repair it. Aside from replacing the storage, they also need to upgrade the firmware of your device.

That should work again.

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Zen vision m firmware problem


Dear All this problem is caused if the computer has windows media player 11 installed. I googled this for days trying to fix it - & was relieved when i finally sorted it - it's very easy. Just do the following.
Use a computer that has XP (either pro or home edition) (forget about vista....). go to add/remove programs - uninstall windows medi player - on my PC it does a roll back to WMP version 9. There's also a program called "Windows media format runtime 11" which comes with WMP11 & you need to uninstall this too - otherwise it still won't recognise the player.

Then restart your PC. Then make sure you have downloaded the lastest firmware version - just google it - trying to find the right one on the creative website is not easy - their website is poor - there are quite a few other places you can download it from.

Then I clicked the "reload firmware" option in the recovery mode (I had already deleted it 4 days ago). Then when your PC has restarted plug in your Zen, it should come up something like "MTP device recognised". Now when you double click on the firmware downloaded to install - it it will recognise the player & you can click the upgrade button. It does the upgrade & puts the firmware back on the ZEN. I got a message saying "firmware upgrade failed" at the end although when I started the player - it booted up as normal & I was able to reload & play my music.

This sure beats the "send it back to John Lewis, pay 60 quid & wait 6 weeks for it to come back " option - if like mine it's out of warranty

Blue Screen and Computer freeze after using Memorex CD-R & DVD RW


Is it possible to try this drive in another PC? My recommendatoin, if the drive performs to specs in the other PC, would be to perform a System Restore (not the XP one, but rather the one that uses the HP disks). If you do decide to do the restore, be sure to backup anything that is irreplacable as the restore will put your system back to factory settings. Good luck!

Driver won't work


Are you saying the bios detects the drive, but when you go to My Computer you cant see the drive listed? If so, Right click on My computer and in the menu select 'manage', In the Computer management window select removable media and activate the drive. It will then show in My computer, and be able to read/write cd's/dvd/s. If this does NOT work, then update the firmware for the drive. A lot of times when you buy a new drive, the firmware on it is out of date and the manufacturer has a new firmware out for it to fix computability issues with the collage of hardware thats out there.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Jukebox Zen Xtra 40 gig


You probably have Winders Media Player 11. If you can find another computer that has WMP 10, you can use that computer to do the firmware upgrade, then go back to the original computer. Thingsa should work fine. Otherwise, you need to unistall WMP 11 and WMP11 runtime. Another case of Billy messing us up. And don't even get me started about vista....

Firmware upgrade


first, try to uninstall the frimware from the add remove programs (Control panel). If it wont help, uninstall the driver and remoe the device (right click on 'my computer' - properties - hardware - device manager)restart the machine and let Windows redetect it. It should have retained the driver and will reload it. Good luck!
