Stalled Backup Burn Onto Disc


Yesterday, i tried to burn my weekly back-up disc. It stalled , so i canceled it. Today i tried again, was told to put in the old disc. I did and it stalled again when it came time to take out the first disc. I had to shut down and use the paper clip. I tried again with a new disc (the other one had finished). The process got to 63% and hung there for more than 1/2 hour. It never told me to insert another disc, although, after 2 hours or so it must be done. I will have to paper clip it again to get the disc out. I'm assuming i'm 2/3rds done with my back-up (i have a lot of photos).
Why does the program not say anything when it's hung up?

Message - No Disc In Drive - Can't Burn Picture Cd

I selected about 40 pictures from a gallery folder to burn to disc. I get a window that opens and says "files waiting to be burned to disc" followed by a list of the selected image files. I click 'burn to disc', and am prompted to put an empty disc into the cd-rom drive. After i do, and after closing the drive door, i get a 'checking disc' msg. In the window. In a few seconds the drive door opens, and i see this message: "there is no disc in the cd or dvd burner".

"Please insert a writable disc into the d drive". This drive plays discs fine, and i had no problems burning when i used vista, but after a hd crash, i upgraded to win7 and this is my first attempt at making a disc. Is there some compatibility issue here?. Device mgr. Says the device is working. The driver is up to date.

Upgrade From Backup Disc

Upgrade from backup disc not possible? I bought an upgrade to windows 7 home premium (from vista 64) via the store, downloaded the upgrade file - geez thats a big one. But could not install it kept coming up "crc error". Tried a couple of times to download again, but always ended up with crc error when running the file. So i thought, ok, wait for the backup disc in the post. The latter arrived today (took two weeks).

Put that in the dvd drive, an up comes an error message (contained in a txt file) claiming it cant install from dvd unless the op sys supports iso13346 udf file system spec.

I am assuming that translates to the fact that the back up disc will only work (in terms of op sys install) if windows 7 is installed. If i am correct, and i am posting this to check my assumption, then it looks like i must go back and fight the good fight on clean download of the original upgrade file (i've tried many ways including download managers).

The catch 22 of a op sys install backup disc that will only allow install if the op sys is installed is worthy of monty python, you couldn't make it up. Anyway, having allowed myself a mini-winge.grateful for advice as to whether or not i need to hit the download route again, or if in fact i am making a basic error somewhere.

Phenom2 8gb  1tb disc (currently has vista 64), checks out ok on upgrade advisor, all "green"

Error When Trying To Burn Cd - Windows Media Player Cannot Burn Files

Windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish. If necessary, verify that the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the latest device driver. I just burned a cd with absolutely no problems at all. Using the same type of cd, brand new, i attempted to burn another cd and got this error message: windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish.

If necessary, verify that the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the latest device driver. I've shut down all programs running, restarted my computer, changed the burn speed under the devices tab, everything i knew to do and all the things i've read through these forums, no such luck, still getting the exact same message. Any clue why my cd burner has decided to just stop working for me?

Backup And Restore - Win 7 Will Not Load Recovery From Disc

So yesterday i was on the computer and it just quit. Shut down and restarted without warning and flashed a blue screen with a sunshine ray type screen. Then i got a windows error recovery and i choose to start windows normally as this has never happened to me. When i choose that i got a blue screen that a problem was detected quoted stop: 0x0000007e. I managed to get into the advanced boot options but no option would work. It would only just recycle a restart. Then i would get the error in windows boot manager about 0xc0000428. Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. I have put in a recovery disc that was made and a genuine windows 7 disc and i get the option to boot from disc but it just takes me to the digital signature error.

I have pulled the hard drive out and put into an external case and hooked up to my laptop. Everything is still on my hard drive. I have ran the smart tests in the bios menu and they all passed. I have taken out the ram and put it back in. I do not get any beep codes or anything. I read on here to try the windows defender offline disc. I burned a disc off my laptop which is just a few weeks old and clean of malware and viruses. When i put disc in all i got was a the blue symbol (4 squares in a square) and it just sits and goes no where. Thinking there might be something wrong with the dvd drive itself i tried an external usb dvd with same results. I even made a copy on a flash drive with the same results except shortly after loading i now get an all blue screen that says recovery your pc needs to be repaired. An unexpected error has occured. Error code 0xc0000229 and so on with the f8 for startup settings or enter to try again. Well nothing happens when i choose f8 or press enter. I have to restart the system with a hard reboot to get anything to happen again.

I have also went into the bios and reloaded defaults. Not sure what else to do. I am not 100% tech savvy but i would say i have about 75% knowledge on the systems. Any help and guidance would be much appreciated. I have searched out the problem but cannot find anything else that repeats my problem. A lot of people are able to load from a disc but i cannot. Hp pavillion p6000 series, windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

Installation Stalled At Transferring Files Settings And Programs

I am doing an upgrade from vista to win 7. The installation got stuck on the last step in the list: "transferring files, settings and programs". The progress indicator show 62% for that step. At the bottom it says: "transferring files, settings, and programs (520258 of 688330 transferred)" . It has been like that for the last 3 hours or so. What are my options other than just resetting and hoping for the best?

Cannot Burn A Cd From Library

I have windows 7 and when i try to burn audio from my library it starts to burner and then i get an error message saying that my burner is not connected or something to that effect. I have tried slowing down the burn speed but to no avail. I am using a sony cd-r disc and the music that i trying to burn is not protected. When i go into the fix mode it says that the disc is not recognized but that it has been fixed.

I have checked to see that i have the latest drivers and i have. I was actually able to burn the three audio selections that came with the computer. The only other music i currently have is a classical album that i bought and downloaded from amazon and, that is the one i can't burn to a cd.

How To Burn Files To Cd/dvd?

How do i burn files to cd/dvd? I've spent the past hour trying to burn files to my cd/dvd. Even after i erase the disc and tell windows 7 what files to burn it tells me the files already exist on the destination disc or there isn't enough disc space on the destination even after i erase the darn thing.

Then when i finally get it start burning and even during what i perceive as the burning process that balloon keeps popping up telling me i have files ready to burn even though they were burned (at least that was the case the last time) i'm attempting to burn the same updated files that i burned a week ago. Apparently erasing the disc does no good. Am i missing something or is there an easy way to do this? Maybe some third party software would make things a bit easier.

Not Able To Burn Files To Dvd

Problems burning dvds i'm new to windows 7. I have read the instructions for wmp 12 and i cannot burn dvds. I had no problem in vista but this is a trial just getting the files into the player. Drop and drag doesn't work. I finally got the avi files into it but on one dvd player i have a pic and no sound and on the other sound and no pic. I used a dvd-wr, which didn't work at all and a dvd -r, which gave me the results i just stated. At one point, i got a list up of settings but i can't find it again. Both dvd players support divx. Can anyone suggest a solution?

Media Player Cd Burn Error

It starts burning and then stops when it gets to 99%. This error message pops up on the screen: windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish. If necessary, verify that the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the latest device driver. I'm using a laptop with windows 7 that already has a burner inside. Also, when i play the cd in a cd player it seems to work fine. So i'm wondering why it's displaying that message.

Unable To Burn Audio Cds

Unable to burn audio since loading win 7 but can burn dvd'si have 2 lite-on dh-20a4p combo's which will not burn audio cd's with a number of different burning programs tried in windows 7 ultimate. The funny thing is they both worked to their full capacity in vista ultimate burning both dvd's and cd's with no problems. With different types of media i'll get to the final stage of burning and the programs either won't give me the green light or they just hang. I am thinking that this is an issue with the driver in windows 7 and that perhaps there may be a way to load the vista driver.

When i use wmp 12 to burn i get the following message no matter what media i use.
"Windows media player could not complete burning because the disc is not compatible with your drive. Try inserting a different kind of recordable media or use a disc that supports a write speed that is compatible with your drive. "

The disc has by then ejected. I have tried removing upper and lower filters in the registry to no avail. I can't remember if it worked whilst trialling windows 7 rc1. My hardware is as follows:

Operating system: ms windows 7 ultimate 32-bit
Cpu: intel pentium d 805
Smithfield 90nm technology
Ram: 2. 0gb dual-channel ddr2 @ 267mhz 4-4-4-11
Motherboard: gigabyte technology co. , Ltd. 8vt880p combo (socket 775)
Graphics: generic pnp monitor @ 1680x1050
256mb geforce 7300 gs (undefined) 48 °c
Hard drives: 195. 36gb seagate st320082 scsi disk device (scsi)
Optical drives: atapi dvd a dh20a4p ata device
Atapi dvd a dh20a4p ata device

Audio: realtek ac'97 audio for via (r) audio controlleri've tried many different things, eg: rolling back firmware, attempting to uninstall wmp 12 and replace with wmp 11 but i'm stumped. Worked perfectly with xp then vista unless something in the registry has changed in win 7. All diagnostics say both rom's are fine. What do you guy's reckon?  Ideas:programs you are having problems with error messages recent changes you made to your computer what you have already tried to fix the problem

Win 7 Virtual Xp Backup By Microsoft Backup & Restore

Backup Failed, Backup Drive No Longer Detected

Windows 7 kept bugging me about creating a backup, so i finally decided to. I chose to backup the default items onto my d: drive. I let it run, left for a bit and came back. It failed at 70ish%. Tried again. Same thing. I didn't have a whole lot of time left so i decided to just forget it.

I deleted the incomplete backup files on my d: drive (there was a c: backup file and mediaid. Bin) since there seemed to be no use for incomplete backup files.

When i got home and turned on my computer, post took longer than usual. My sata 2 drive was undetected. Sata 2 = my d drive. When windows starts to boot, it freezes when the windows animation is doing it's thing. I tried repairing and restoring from previously known good configuration and still nothing. I used my win7 disk to check for problems, and i even used that to restore to a point prior to my failed backups.

What else could i try? Why would my d: drive suddenly be undetected in bios, and why would a failed backup cause my windows installation to freeze? Edit: i unplugged the data cable from my d: drive and now windows boots. So deleting backup files royally screwed up my d: drive?

Dell Datasafe Local Backup Vs Windows Backup

I recently purchased a dell desktop with windows 7. One of the first things i did was configure all of my back-upsettings / schedule in windows. I used the recommended windows default settings in regards to what data is being backed up and set my back-up location to an attached external wd drive. All seems to be working fine. That said this machine also has dell factory installed back up software (dell datasafe local back-up) that does it's thing and backs up data to a partition on the "c" drive. My question is if i've set up windows to back up my data to an external drive do i even need the dell datasafe local back up program at all? The concern is this program is using space on my c drive and if the c drive were to crash having the back up info on it seems kind of pointless to me anyway.

Windows Media Player Cannot Burn The Files

Windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish. If necessary verify the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the last device driver.

If you guys tell me check and make sure the cd burner is connected;been there done that.
If you guy tell me to uninstall the device and reinstall;been there done that
If you guys tell me to try brand new disks;been there done that as well.
I have lowered the burn speed ect.

I have done everything possible. I can burn a disk one time or a few then next disk i get that error. I have yet to burn the system restore disk and i am afraid to for fear of getting that error. I am thinking of getting external burner since no one things its a good idea test things out before putting them out.

Dvd Maker Problem During The Burn Process

I have a sony dvd camcorder (mini disc)and sony vegas movie studio 6 software. Since getting a new laptop with windows 7 i've been having problems with vegas movie studio (i think it may not be fully compatible with windows 7). But it does manage to render my videos to a recognizable format (mpg) so i turned to windows dvd maker, which looks like a great and simple program to use initially. But like many messages on this forum i too had a problem during the burn process - mine only gets to approx. 4% and then comes up with an error message (but the error message displays no detail). What can i do? Is there an alternative? Can i burn a mini disc onto a dvd-r for example? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Error - Windows Media Player Cannot Burn The Files

Windows media player-error: windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish.

When trying to burn a cd wmp goes through the motions but only burns a some of the music and not others then ejects the cd with the message above. Some songs on the burn list have audio codec info some do not. I believe this makes a difference but am not sure.

Disc Replacement

When windows 7 first released, i purchased a digital copy from company called digital river through microsoft which was made for college students for $29. 99 (after providing my college information to verify i was a student). It was an upgrade version and i upgraded from windows vista business 64-bit to windows 7 professional 64-bit.

Well i would like to do a fresh install for windows 7, but i don't have a disc. I am posting here to ask if i qualify to purchase a disc replacement purchase or something of that sort or if i can even do a fresh install with my version of windows 7 because 1) i don't even know if it is possible with the version of windows 7 i purchased, or 2) if i am even able to get a disc for it.

In the past, my windows vista was also a digital purchase through my it class in high school. I was directed from the microsoft forums to a microsoft site where i could order a replacement windows vista disc for $10. I was just wondering if such a place existed for windows 7 discs. ?

Also if i am not allowed to purchase a new disc or even do a fresh install with the upgrade version of windows 7, can you recommend what i should do if i want a fresh install of windows 7?

Just as a note, the reason i am asking this is because my computer is performing very slowly and i am guessing it has to do with the upgrade since most of the time when installing an os, you are supposed to do it from scratch with a clean hdd and when i did my upgrade, it was on a half full probably fragmented hdd (since at the time of installation i hadn't run my weekly defragment yet). I know it isn't my computer itself because i exceed the requirements by a longshot (q9550, 4gb of ddr2 1000, gtx 260).

Recovery Of Disc Image

My desktop pc had a hard drive failure. Windows 7 home premium had been installed as an upgrade from win xp a couple of months ago. Here is my question - i have replaced the bad drive with the original drive still containing win xp. I can re-install win 7  home premium, but i also have a new and unused upgrade package of win 7 professional. Also, i have a disc image of my pre-crash win 7 home premium on an external hard drive. Which win 7 should i install (home premium or professional) and can i then recover the disc image, thereby saving the re-install of every program i had pre-crash?

Stick On Disc Labels

Are they really not a good thing? Do they add so much thickness to the disc that some players just can't handle the added thickness to make it work/play well in a car disc player or for that matter a home dvd/cd player? The labeled discs i speak of are completely without lumps/bubbles/and are perfectly centered/no overhang/etc. I do have and occasionally use lightscribe - but find they are hard to read. Overall. Are they not recommended because of the added thickness?
