Lenovo Y580 with a blu-ray reader/dvd burner. Running Windows 8.1. Read DVD's fine just doesn't want to burn them. I can't add data to a dvd, backup a movie, format a dvd. When trying to format a dvd I get the error, after the drive runs for awhile, "Cannot complete format".
My Lenovo y580 is connected to my wireless network but no other wireless ever show up in the Networks Charm. My wireless network that I am connected is not displayed either. This does not allow me to pick up any new networks when I leave my home. I have tried a lot of basic things but nothing seems to work.
How to hid all the partitions in the factory installed HDD for Lenovo Y580.
This is the scenario. Firstly, i successfully migrated all of the following partitions: OEM/Hidden partition, C partition: boot drive/ program files and data drive & D partition: containing drivers
from my Lenovo factory installed HDD to the SSD and to use the SSD as the primary boot drive . Now, i plan to use the factory installed HDD as my data drive. (I am using a caddy tray for this whereby i plan to swap out the optical drive and pluck in the Lenovo factory installed HDD). However, for "safety reasons" i do not plan to re-format the entire factory installed HDD but rather to keep those partitions just in case if my SSD fails.
Hence, how do i turn all the three partitions above (in the Lenovo factory installed HDD) to become dormant? I want the computer to boot up from the existing SSD but then to treat the factory installed HDD as the data drive and not to read from any of the three partitions in the factory installed HDD.
I am planning to use EASUS as my disk partition freeware.
Every time I try to play any DVD in Windows Media Center, I get this error:
"CANNOT PLAY DVD : The DVD may be in use by another application. If all other applications are closed, the video resolution may need to be lowered or the display connection type may not support playback of the DVD."
I know the issue is not with my physical DVD drive because of the following reasons: I am presently dual-booting XP Pro SP3 and Windows 8 Pro with Media Center. The former can play DVDs just fine. VLC Player on Windows 8 can also play DVDs just fine.
I'm curious if there's any way to get this to work on Windows Media Center on Windows 8, then, because I paid for the upgrade from Pro to Pro with Media Center, after all.
I have 2 DVDs that I just bought and work perfectly on my old Windows 7 laptop. They don't work on my new Dell Inspiron 3520. I'm not using Windows Media Player, I know that can't play DVDs in Windows 8. I'm using PowerDVD, it came for free with my laptop. When I play my DVD it stops responding. I tried using VLC too, but it seems as if it's stuck at loading for 1 hour. I don't think it's a codec problem because both of these are supposed to come with the codecs. The software isn't corrupted since they can run other DVDs. I have updated my drivers. My DVDs work in Windows 7, so what is my problem?
I have a game that was written into 2 DVDs and when i want to install this game and insert DVD1 and begin the installation , after for example 10 min it says you should insert DVD 2 for resuming the installation.
I have an 8gig install file of a game(with iso format) so how can i write this into 2 DVDs that will install like my above example.
I bought a new laptop asus q500l now i want to make recovey dvds and after looking on the internet in asus forums it seems my laptop has a recovery partiton but no option to create recovery dvds my question now is lets say i have a windows 8 dvd oem will i be able to use that to reinstall my os or is there a way for me to make a recovery dvd reason for asking is i want to install ssd in the laptop but i dont wanna doit without some kinda back up for my factory setup note i do use r-drive image for backing up hard drive.
I created DVD and USB backups to my new Windows 8 Inspiron laptop; I needed to recover the next day, and the Hard Disk recovery partition and the USB were reported as corrupt! On a brand new system with a brand new USB stick!
On attempting to recover with the DVDs, after using the first one the Dell recovery program said 100% complete, so didn't even read the next 2. The recovery showed a "restart" button, and of course nothing happened!
Trying to use Windows to burn files to a DVD. I go into the explorer window. Click share. Then burn to disc. Sometimes it gives me the error that the folder is in the same location of the source folder. And now it just the destination has the same names. And wants me to cancel or replace. If I replace it just hangs there. I used Nero and was able to write to the DVD fine so I know its not a DVD issue. It opens a duplicate window and at the bottom of the files it lists the new files ready to be written.
I haven't installed Windows Media Center yet but yes I got the free key etc. I'm in the process of getting a new PC and then I will install but in the meantime I would like to burn to a DVD. How can I do this?
I have an acer aspire desktop pc windows 8 its 6 months old. When i try to burn an audio cd it will only burn 99% and then it ejects the disc. I have tried to play the cd in my stereo which plays ordinary and mp3 but it reads but cannot play the tracks.
It will play in my computer.
I have tried burning with the same batch of cds on my laptop and it works fine.
I've never burnt an ISO to a DVD Rom. I have created a Windows ISO, and I have a DVD Rom ready in the optical drive. If I right-click on the ISO, I can "open with" Power2Go or with Windows Disk Image Burner. Should I choose one of those two programs and a Win 8 installation disk will be created?
My friend has a new laptop running MS 8. He can burn dvd's and cd's but when he tries to burn a cd+g it will not do it. The file that he is burning is a .bin file extension.also tried with a mpg3 format and it would not work either.He needs to burn it in a KARAOKE format. He has another laptop running MS 7 and there is no problem in burning a CD+G. He also purchased a external dvd/cd writer. He still is unable to burn in the cd+g format with the new laptop.
""It's CD+g. It is a karaoke recording of video the "g" is the graphics flashing on the screen, and the CD is the music of the song that plays as the words move along the display. I tried to burn an mpg3 which is also a karaoke format and it didn't work either.""
I always get stuck on a couple of steps...things on my screen are not the way it says, or I don't get what is meant, or it sounds like it is assuming the reader knows how to "then, just follow the steps"...but I don't get what is meant by some terminology.
Feel really dumb after having read so many articles and still can't do it. Lots of the articles say to do different things. Not even sure what type of cd to use, I have some on hand I think are okay. Guess I really need a step-by-step walk thru for EACH step.
Comp got really fouled up, and even the built-in refresh or reset made no difference, in fact, made things worse. I want to save the favorites because I'll be reinstalling everything to the way it was new via the recovery discs I had to buy from manufacturer, then I want to be able to put the favorites back on, and hope things are fixed.
here's a link to follow. But I get stuck. Or they will type out the process for doing it, but there's always a few spots where it assumes the reader knows certain stuff.
I was just wondering if I could "Burn" a Virtual XP machine into a ROM -- I only need to run it to access some legacy hardware that I'll be keeping around for a good few years yet -- the ROM would ensure the XP system itself doesn't get altered in any way - I don't need Internet etc on it. I could have the ROM as a keyring FOB which would then be able to be connected to any PC I want. It would boot and operate a lot faster than by running it from a HDD or even an SSD. Only the OS and the hardware drivers / applications need to be installed. I'd use VMware on the HOST systems.
I have some 80 minutes CD-medias, that I want to fill with music for my car. But Windows media Player will only accept up to 74 minutes on each CD. How do I get Media player to split my music-lists in 80 minutes instead of 74 minutes?
I have a 32-bit version of XP on my system, so when I do an upgrade within the XP OS. It automatically upgrades me to the 32-bit Windows 8. The actual installation went fine, without a hitch actually.
I have a 64-bit version of Vista that I may go ahead and do a clean install of first, just so I can upgrade to the 64-bit of Windows 8. But when I was going through the upgrade program, I never saw the option to create the ISO DVD or Flash drive. The only options were, "Install now, or install from desktop later". I chose "install from Desktop later" and found that all it did was suspend the installation until I clicked the desktop icon, which then just loaded the upgrade without giving me the option to create the DVD or Flash disk. Is there somewhere I can download the ISO so that I can create a disk?
I installed Windows 8 Pro on a Dell Studio 1537 laptop that used to run Vista. Win 8 Pro was installed in Dec 2012 and has all Microsoft Windows 8 updates installed.
When I try to burn files on a blank DVD disc using Windows 8's Explorer, I get a message that says:
"Insert a disc Please insert a writable disc into drive M:"
The blank disc is then ejected. Even if I reinsert a different blank DVD disc and try again, the same thing happens.
However, if I open ImgBurn and use the "same" blank DVD disc, ImgBurn recognizes the blank DVD disc and is ready to burn.
It should be noted that I never tried to burn DVDs using Vista's Explorer so I don't know if that ever worked. I just used ImgBurn while I was running Vista. I know I can just use ImgBurn with Windows 8 but I would like to know why Win 8's Explorer won't recognize blank DVD discs. Is this a known problem that has a fix?
I've been backing up "My Documents" with CDBurnerXP because
1. I consider Windows Backups to be opaque and I prefer to keep them simple and to know what is going on 2. Windows Backups does some things I believe are risky so I will not use it 3. Windows 7 had a deep directory structure problem and I presume Windows 8 continues to 4. It's ridiculous to backup "Windows" when I really only care about the safety of my data and since I am a slow typist who can't type at 3 Gigahertz it seems unlikely that I will ever have produced enough data that won't fit in one piece of optical media 5. I prefer to use a backup medium that has no moving parts and no firmware and humidity and mechanical shock resistant and contains no software and nothing vendor specific and blank DVDs are one such medium 6. I don't understand how a "backup DVD" can get scratched if there are never children and animals in the building (movie DVDs are a different matter)
Unfortunately, I can't continue down this route because my Windows 8 is now inside VirtualBox and I can't seem to make CDBurnerXP and Windows 8 recognize a blank DVD as a suitable target for a backup.
I am looking for DVD burning software that is free and is known to work inside VirtualBox.
I have bought lenovo g50-70 just 20days back, it came with inbuilt windows 8.1, they did not give any recoverable disks with it rather they said to take back up of the OS into a usb stick but I forgot to take the backup and tried to partition the hard disk using EASEUS Partition manager then I got this error "0XC0000225"
I recently bought Lenovo B590 laptop, installed Windows 8.1 Pro on it, downloaded/installed latest drivers from Lenovo from my laptop. I see a quite a lot blue screen errors. Most likely these started to appear after I installed and played "return to ravenhearst" game. But even I have uninstalled the game I still get the errors.
