    No drive detected in EMC9

    I have used the software since I bought my comp. in late 2007, and it worked fine until now (I haven;'t burned any cds in awhile, so I just noticed it now.) I went to the device manager, and there's a yellow triangle with an exclamation point shown under cd/DVD devices...and nope, there's no CD?DVD drive shown when I click on my computer. I'm not sure of the model number The audio and data applications say it can't detect a drive I did that, then I opened eas media creator 9, and it still says there's no drive detected

    Hello, I have Easy Media Creator 9. I'm trying to burn a data disc, but I can't, because it says there's no drive detected. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? thanks.

    Error About Blank Disc

    I'm trying to burn a data cd, and I insterted a blank disc, and it's telling me there's an error and to please insert a blank disc...I click ok again and again, but it's still giving me the same message...what can I do? it was working for me before with no problems. The only thing I can think of is, my brother installed 2 other DVD-type programs a couple days ago, and it worked before he installed those, and now it's not, so could that be the problem? I'm not sure...help!

    Trying to backup

    Do you think refurbished computers are ok to get? ummm...almost as/or the next best thing as a new one? I know Dell sells refurbished computers...my computer is a Dell, so I'd like to stick with a Dell. Not that I'm getting a new/refurbished comp. right now, but later on...whenever. Another thing...I've heard bad things about Vista...is it really as bad as I've heard? I mean, it can't be that impossible to learn can it? lol...I have XP on my comp...and I've also heard XP is still better/easier than Vista...true?

    Trying to backup

    Thanks for the info. See, I asked the question about the fan(s) noise at my local computer place...they said to replace the fan (didn't say which fan) and it would cost $80...but the thing is, my computer is 6 years old, and they advised not even to bother sticking money into a computer that's only probably worth $50-75. If this computer goes shot (which, I hope it doesn't yet!!!) then I think i'm better off buying a brand new computer (wouldn't you? j/w.) I'd rather have a computer with a flat panel monitor (instead of a big clunky CRT) and one with much larger RAM and HD (this computer only has 128 MB of RAM and 40 GB HD lmao...well, it is 6 years old ) But for now, (and until I can afford a new computer) I hope this one lasts for a while. *crosses fingers*

    Trying to backup

    Hello, I'm trying to backup stuff on my computer using the data cd project described in this article: http://www.udel.edu/topics/backups/roxio.html I have all the stuff ready I want to backup, and I click record, and a box pops up saying something about a compatibility issue and some filepaths not being large enough, and do you want to continue or cancel, so I clicked cancel...now what? oh yeah, and the other day I tried making another data cd (it would have had both pictures and videos on it) and the same thing happened, except that time I clicked continue. It burned the cd, but nothing works on it...pictures don't show up, and videos don't play. What do I do now? I asked some questions at the Dell Forums (my computer's a Dell) because the fan/or harddrive on my computer sometimes makes a loud buzzing/humming noise and was told to start backing up things cause it could be going shot. I was given a few links to check out on how to backup your harddrive ect. and I chose to use the Roxio data cd way instead of formatting a cd and doing a backup the Windows way. I really need to do a backup on my computer. What can I do to fix this?!
