I recently purchased a laptop with Windows 8 after the sudden death of my desktop. I have been having problems burning an mp3 cd. It won't play in the cd player in my truck. I get "bad cd/disc error" messages. At first, I thought it may have been a bad cd-r. Five cd-rs later, I am having the same problem. Not the cd player in my truck, either. Plays an mp3 cd I burned in XP just fine
I used WMP and EZ CD Audio Converter to burn the cds both with the same result. I'm stumped. The only difference I can see between the mp3s burned in XP and Windows 8 is the bitrate. And how do I change it if it is?
I've got windows 8 and I think it's the home edition. now, will this thing burn DVDs on it? I know I can record CDs with it, but I can't find information about burning DVDs, even in this windows 8 for dummies book.
Whenever I try to burn a video dvd or an ISO file through Nero burning ROM or Nero Express, at the time of giving burn command it shows cancelled by the user where as burning data DVD or CD through the same procedure is no problem at all. This problem had started with Nero 2014 Platinum v15.0.03400 Final & is still persisting with Nero 2014 Platinum v15.0.03500 Final, Nero 2014 Platinum v15.0.02500 Final shows no such behaviour.
Also some patches to make some apps work do not open properly but if I try the same one in safe mode they run smoothly I've tried to run them by putting the anti virus & smart screen off but all in vain.The rest of the apps in the Nero suite are working absolutely fine. I'm using windows 8 Pro 64 bit version with i7 3rd generation processor & 16 gb Ram.
When I burn a disc it with nero it burns over the data ring to the end when i burn with imgburn it burns deep up to the data ring then shallow over the top of it. my disc's are dvd-r I have'nt changed them.the pc burned ok before.Iv done every thing i know cleaned, sent it back to factory settings. did asfc scan which was normal.
So recently bought a new PSU, Motherboard and 8GB of more RAM. I thought the BSOD's in the past were caused by a crap PSU however I bought an 80+ Corsair one and upgraded to a Z77 MPOWER motherboard. Have 4 crash dumps and only turned it on yesterday!
I burned about 400kb's worth of favorites onto new blank cd. But when I then check to see just how much of the cd was used up, it says 29mb's. How can that be if the 400kb's of favorites is less than one-half of one mb? I wrongly put this question in the browsers and mail forum. Had one answer, sounded like they meant a certain minimum amount is always used up before you burn your stuff...I think. Or does it indicate I burned them incorrectly?
I am trying to create a recovery media for my Inspiron 15R laptop. I have followed the steps as per the instructions given in manual.I want to create the recovery media on DVD disc. I am selecting disc as the option but every time i m getting the error as " The burning engine was not able to start, please restart the application. I have wasted my whole day trying to create the recovery media...
I have a Dell Inspiron 3521 with a DVD RW drive listed as "HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GU70N" and I use Ashampoo Burning Studio 14. When I tried to burn a Video DVD after DVD authoring I get a warning saying "The inserted CD/DVD could not be detected". I tried other software too. They don't seem to detect the DVD too.
where is spell check in windows 8? or what ever you call it now. how do I correct my spelling in email or anywhere for that manner? and does windows 8 have copy and paste? but it's the spelling thing I can't find and need.
My PC just BSOD while playing games but this was only after it crashed to black screen unresponsiveness. A couple hours after the first crash (maybe after 1.5 hrs of gaming once again) it BSOD with the "Kernel Security Check Failure" error.
I am having trouble with a message in Action Center in Windows 8.1. It is saying "Check Backup Disk Space" and I cannot hide the message. I had Windows 7 File Recovery setup with Windows 8.1, but now after the upgrade, the message is "stuck." Can this be fixed? These two links explain it perfectly:
Windows 8.1 Update - Check backup disk space - Microsoft Community
Windows 8.1, can't remove "Check backup disk space" error in action center -
After upgrading from 4gb OEM RAM to 8gb Corsair CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9 I get BSOD with kernel_security_check_failure message just as Windows attempts to load. This happens with memory sticks in either slot. Testing memory with Memtest continually hangs on test #2. Memory was tested with Memtest in another computer and no errors were found. Incompatible memory or something else?
I have a couple of files that I am trying to download on my new PC. My new PC has Windows 8.1. The files appear to be downloading but get to 98-99% and then stop. I eventually get an error message. I am not a home posting so I don't have the exact error. It is either oxo or oco 000005. I have Norton 360 and it says the file is safe. The one file I have tried to download multiple times is the Garmin Lifetime Updater. This is an exe. file.
Follow these steps to download the Windows 8.1 ISO from microsoft.
1 • Go here Upgrade Windows with only a product key - Microsoft Windows Support scroll down and click on both 'Install Windows 8' and 'Install Windows 8.1' 2 • Run the Windows 8 setup and enter your retail Windows 8 key, click next and when it begins downloading, STOP it! Exit setup. 3 • Now run the the Windows 8.1 setup. It will produce and error. Exit and then run Windows 8.1 setup again. It should now be downloading the Windows 8.1 ISO. Afterwards you can save it as an ISO or create the USB media immediately. 4 • After its downloaded Select Install by creating media, and click/tap on Next. 5 • Select ISO file, and click/tap on Save.
My son bought the Windows 8 upgrade on offer $24.99 from MS. But it will not download no matter what option he selects - install now, create media or install from desktop later.Just keeps failing saying there is an error and try later.
I am dual booting Windows 7 with Windows 8.1, and I went to reboot to go into Windows 7 and it gave me a BSOD. This is NOT the first time this has happened I had to leave Windows 8 in the past because of constant crashing. I am tired of this and I want an explanation.

I made a partition of 250GB for Windows 8. I don't know what else to say here. Windows 8 seems to just crash a lot, it happened on an OLDER computer of mine, but this is a brand new custom build. I can't even comprehend why it's crashing.
Also I guess it's worth noting I installed this today and installed windows updates today as well.
I forgot to mention I was using COMODO Anti-Virus, I saw in a previous post about my exact error that it had something to do with Comodo. I have since uninstalled that.
Also here is a preview of the error:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0xc0000018 (0xffffc0000019c5d0, 0xffffc000009ea9f0, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000). A dump was saved in: C:WindowsMEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 101113-34796-01.
So I have recently switch over to 5ghz wifi, I look up how to check the 5ghz wifi compatibility, it state that if my computer have 802.11a or 802.11n network modes it's compatible to 5ghz wifi. My Windows 8 computer have 802.11n. That should be mean my 5ghz wifi should be showing up, but its not. My Iphone 5S is able to connect to my 5ghz wifi. But my computer is not.
The way I check is type "netsh wlan show drivers" In Cmd, then i look at Radio types supported, it listed as 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n.
