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.

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?

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?

What can be done to fix this problem?  What new drives exist that allow gapless burn using wmp 12?

Code 32 - Disc Drive Problem

I just entered a cd into my disc drive and noticed nothing was happening. So i went to manually click on the disc drive itself, and saw that it was completely gone. When going through the troubleshooting process in windows 7, this note came up:

A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32). Obviously i need to re-enable this service, but i am clueless as to which one or how to do so.

Recover Disc Image From Sata Drive

I just purchased a new laptop. Spent all last weekend upgrading the os to win7 pro; reinstalling all my apps; and transferring all my data. Done! I then discovered one of the usb ports didn't work.
When i return to the store, i found they had the same laptop, but with a larger hd at the same price. So. I need to transfer all my "stuff" to the new machine.

I used the windows disk image utility. I successfully created the images on an external esata drive.
When i tried to run the windows restore utility on the new machine, it didn't recognize any available images. (The esata drive appears ok in windows explorer.

Error - Insert A Recordable Disc - Dvd Drive Does Not Work

Op: dvd drive does not work right with windows 7 with digital photos i have taken, i want to be able to do a slide show on a dvd that can be watched on tv. Any dvd that i put in, i get the message, "insert a recordable disc". All i can figure out is that maybe it has to do with the cd/dvd drive. I have a hp computer with a atapi dvd a dh16aal ata. The computer came new with windows vista already installed, then we were able to upgrade to 7 which we did.

Asus G73 Drive Does Not Recognize Blu Ray Disc

Recently got a new laptop - asus g73 with blu ray/windows 7 64 bit pro/comes with powerdvd 9
When i put a dvd in the drive, everything works fine.

When i put a blu ray disc in the drive - windows does not recognize that there is a disc in the drive (i.e. No auto-play, no disc recognized in windows explorer). Also, the powerdvd9 software also does not recognize there is a disc inserted. When i first opened the powerdvd program, it asked me to setup the correct region codes, and i've also setup the correct country in windows. The model of my blu ray drive is "matshita bd-cmb uj141as".

No Disk In The Drive Message

I use quickbooks and backup to their server. I can do so just fine with no problem until i insert a memory stick into the usb drive. The next time i try to backup to quickbooks server i get the message, there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drivedeviceharddisk2dr2. I hit return several times and then the backup will begin.

I'm not even trying to back up onto the memory stick. If i reboot the computer then i don't get the message until the next time i insert a memory stick. Any suggestions? I have called quickbooks and they don't help because after i reboot i am successful so they say it is a computer issue. I called zt systems tech support and they are no help.

Bitlocker Message - Do You Want To Scan And Fix Drive

I'm using windows 7 ultimate 32 bit on a 3 drive desktop pc, using bitlocker to encrypt drives d and e. After several weeks without any issues i'm now finding that every time i unlock drive d after booting up i get a message saying there are disk errors and asking me whether i want to scan and fix drive d. Or continue without doing so. If i confirm a scan and fix, the pc will take about 90 minutes to complete the task but then report that no errors are to be found, yet the next time i reboot the machine, exactly the same message appears.

If i continue but ignore the 'error' there's no problem until a scheduled backup to drive e is due, which then fails, telling me it can't backup drive d because there are errors on it:( i've run registry mechanic to fix any registry errors but this hasn't eliminated the problem, and i'm now at a loss to know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions what steps to take to resolve this?

Error Message - Access Denied - After Transferring Hard Drive To New Pc

"access denied" error message after transferring hard drive to new computer. I have changed laptops. The monitor went out on one it was going to be $200+ to fix so i bought a new one. For the purpose of information recovery i took the hard drive out of the old laptop, vista os, and put it in my desktop plugged up sata to move the information over to my external hard drive.

I go to the users folder on the hard drive and see the owner profile and the public profile. Unfortunately none of my information is saved in the public profile. When i try to access the owner profile is says: "access is denied. " I feel that this is probably in part to the fact that i had a password on the profile. Is there a way that the password can be deleted from this file through the registry?

Trying the drive as the primary and not a secondary was a failed attempt. The drive would not boot all the way through the startup because of hardware on the desktop. I am at a loss, i have looked on google for a resolution but with no prevail.

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?

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

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.
