CD rom drive is dead!

Time to go out and buy a new one. Rough cost is anywhere for a DVD BURNER is $25 - $40.

DVD burner are now the mainstream drives replacing CD roms.
But if you can still get a replacement CD rom from a computer in town should be cheaper than a DVD burner.

DVD burner can read and write DVD's and CD's.

You computer probably has Autoplay turned off for security.
-Click the start button on the lower left and click Computer when it appears near the middle of the right column. -Look for one of the drives labeled CD or DVD, probably the D drive. Righ-click it's icon. -From the list choose Autoplay.
If Autoplay is not an option double-click on the CD or DVD drive. Look for an application called Setup and double-click it to begin setup.

Can not connect to internet on my laptop with belkin router f7d3302vi


The Setup CD does not automatically start.
  • If Belkin Setup does not run when you insert the CD-ROM, your computer may not be configured to open CDs automatically.
  • If Belkin Setup does not appear within 15 seconds, browse to your CD-ROM drive and open the "Belkin Setup" icon.
  • Alternatively, you may visit HYPERLINK "http://router/" or "192.168.2.1" and perform the setup manually. Belkin Setup cannot find my Router.
If Belkin Setup is not able to communicate with your router during the installation process, please check the following items.
  • Make sure that the wireless hardware on your computer is turned on, if available.
  • Try connecting your computer to one of the four "wired" ports on the Router with an Ethernet cable.
  • Ensure that the Router is on. The front panel LED should be lit.
  • Unplug the Router's power supply for 10 seconds, then plug it back in. There may be firewall software on your computer preventing an outgoing connection. You may choose to temporarily disable this software before attempting setup.
once you login to router page by 192.168.2.1
under wireless click channel & ssid ->change a diffent name in ssid
under wireless click- >security ->use 64 bit wep and disablw wifi protected set uo would work fine

No dvd/cd rom icon


From what I read, Acer Empowering software is no big deal. Some say it's fine, others say nothing worthwhile. If you aren't thrilled with it, you might consider uninstalling it and seeing if it brings your CD-rom back. If you want to keep it or uninstall of Empowering software doesn't work, uninstall the CD-rom and then let Windows rediscover and install it again.

Go into Device Manager, right click on CD-rom and choose uninstall. Close out and restart.

CD html presentation-hyperlinks don't work with other pc's


To create an Autorun-enabled CD-ROM, proceed as follows:
  • Create an Autorun.inf File
    Autorun.inf is a text file that is located in the root folder of your application CD-ROM. It provides to the computer the name and the location of the startup program for your application that is installed when the CD-ROM is inserted. The Autorun.inf file can also contain optional information including the following:
  • The name of a file that contains an icon that represents your application's CD-ROM drive. This icon appears in Windows Explorer instead of the standard drive icon.
  • Additional commands for the shortcut menu that appears when the user right-clicks the CD-ROM icon. You can also specify the default command that runs when the user double-clicks the icon. Autorun.inf files are similar to .ini files.
  • The [autorun] section contains the default Autorun commands. All Autorun.inf files must have an [autorun] section.
  • icon: Specifies the path and the file name of an application-specific icon for the CD-ROM drive.
  • open: Specifies the path and the file name of the startup application.

Autorun.infThe following is an example of a simple Autorun.inf file. It specifies Filename.exe as the startup application. The second icon represents the CD-ROM drive instead of the standard drive icon.
[autorun]
open=Filename.exe
icon=Filename.ico
