Question about Xpressions Media High Achiever Study Skills

1 Answer

Because I wanted to check my purchase of 5 of your CD_ROMS as to what I was buying for friends working in Zambia, I downloaded the Composition CD-ROM in my computer & liked it. Will they be able to use it after my partial use of it? I don't want them to have problems with their computer as help is hard to come by in that area. Also can these be downloaded on a memory stick to avoid using up memory space on their computer?

    Thank you. This is a partial answer. The most important is whether having downloaded the CD-ROM on my computer to test it, will that prevent the use of that particular CD-ROM program by some one else on another computer? I want the young man in Zambia to be able to use all the programs as that is why I purchased them.

Memory sticks are the new DVD. DVD's can be real problematical. Some PC only have CD anyway. Memory sticks are also light small and not easily damaged.

Acer aspire wont recognise cd roms but plays dvds

Have you checked your CD roms? Maybe they are already defective. Try running them in a CD player to see if they run smoothly.
Sometimes, the onboard driver update mechanism isn't that consistent with its result. I suggest that you use RadarSync to scan your computer to see if your drivers are updated.
RadarSync is a specialized PC Driver Update Software. You can scan your computer using the free version but if you want it to update the drivers then you can buy a year or two years subscription of the software to keep your drivers updated.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I required CD-ROM cable . That is a ribbon cable which connects CD-ROM and mother board. Plz tell me how i can buy it and estimated cost? Thanks

The ribbon cable you speak of is also called an IDE cable or ATA parallel cable. They are the "older" types of connectors used for Hard-drives and CD-ROMs on Desktop PCs.. Based on the age of your Pc, you can either get a 40wire (older) or 80wire(newer) cable..but both will fit your CD ROM drive & motherboard just fine, as they both have 19pin connectors. You should be able to find 1 at a computer repair shop or retailer, or purchase one online for around $3

Acer Aspire 1642z dvd decoder not installed error message

Your friend probably reinstalled a "generic" version of Windows,
and did NOT use the CD-ROMs that were supplied by ACER with your computer.

If you still have those disks, maybe one of them is an "Applications" disk, and you can reinstall the "missing" applications from that CD-ROM.

Or, if you don't have that set of CD-ROMs, contact ACER, and order a replacement set. Usually, the fee is $20, plus the cost of courier-shipping.

Or, look at ACER's web-site -- they may make those applications available for free download.

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?

CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

Hi 1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER. 2. Locate and click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom 3. To disable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 0 (zero). To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1. 4. Restart your computer. NOTE: This method disables automatically running CD-ROMs. If you want to disable automatically running CD-ROMs depending on the CD-ROM that you insert in the CD-ROM drive, you can press and hold down one of the SHIFT key while you insert the CD-ROM. This may help. Good Luck
