I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:How To Copy DVD music to MP3 ??

I can't personally vouch for this as I haven't used it to rip anything. There may be better alternatives - but it is free and supports the following formats:

*.vob , *.dat, *.mpeg, *.mpg

Free DVD MP3 Ripper - Freeware converts DVD to MP3, VCD to MP3, MPEG to MP3.

Just select your source file and set your output location and settings.

Hi I just had my computer upgraded and now I want to temporarily copy my mp3 music on a cd-rw. I have Nero I did have hot burn, I did get 2 songs on and now I keep getting a message that nero wants to format my cd-rw
What does that mean and how do I copy the rest.
thanks a bunch

A:trying to copy music on cd-rw

You copy MP3 files to CD-R/RW just like data files if you're just using it for backup. You'll first want to erase the CD-RW disk if you've started recording on it, then treat it just like a CD-R disk and drag-n-drop the files in a standard data file compilation.

A:DVD with pictures set to music - How to copy?

anyway I have a DVD (whats the difference between CD and DVD and how do I tell which it is)? that is very special.

The only difference is their capacity to handle media storage. Standard CD-R - 700 MB | DVD-R - 4.7 GB depending on the disc media manufacturers
I fumble my way through most everything but DVD playing/ripping, etc. is always a problem for me.

Most media burning programs have online tutorials and features that support different most media formats while some are dedicated to specific burning, converting and media file reading.

There are 2 files on the DVD one is called AUDIO_TS
and the other is called VIDEO_TS if that helps anything.
I have tried copying them but unsuccessfully.   I don't know what program created them and I'm sort of lost really.

The file is a VCD/DVD output file. The VIDEO_TS when using the (DVD/VCD) burning feature of a media software are the only files needed or recognized when a prompt location box opens assuming that the files are saved on your hard drive. To copy/backup your discs is also another option depending on what media software you are using. If the file is a DATA burned disc usually file contents mixed up with pictures, music, movies on folders are the same with how to copy/paste files on your hard drive on a different destination storage.

Relevancy 50.74%

When I began burning audio CDRs in 1999 I used a stand alone Phillips unit. Eventually I got the software and did virtually all of my CD burning on the computer. I am aware that CDR Music discs can be used on a computer or a stand alone unit whereas CDR data discs can only be used for copying music on a computer. I occasionally get out one of the old CDR Music discs to rip certain tracks to my hard drive to send to others or create new compilations.

I bought a box of CDR Music discs recently at a good price. I burned some of them for a friend. He just replied that his new Dell computer has two drives and neither will allow him to copy tracks to his hard drive. Any comments or suggestions? Thanks Dennis

While I have been using computers for many years I have never done anything with music, so I am a total dunce when it comes to that.
I have tried using Windows Media player but it gets all tied up with libraries etc.
All I want to do is select a few songs from CDs, then put them onto an SD memory card so I can put them onto a tablet.
Is there a simple way to do this?

A:Copy music fron CD to Memory card.

You can try CDex. Set up your codec in the option (aka set your MP3 quality or other format you desire), then set up the directory the music to be saved also in the options. Name and rip your CD. Then copy the files from the directory they were saved in to your memory card.

Hi, I am trying to copy from windows 8.1 music folder to a usb to use in my car. I had vista before 8.1 and could simply copy straight over. With 8.1 windows media will play one track then stop and I have to return to library to chose another track. In Vista it would simply move to the next track and start playing. When I copy from the Music folder to the usb I have found that tracks I have copied from different folders remain in the folders and I have to choose folders to get the tracks.
I am fairly new to all this so I hope someone can help as I have looked everywhere on the web for help.

I have always been able to copy my photos or music using the "copy all to CD" button, however this has now disappeared.
I have checked that the IMAPI CD burning service is set to automatic, and I have checked the Recording Tab in enabled on the Drive.
Oddly enough, I can back up my Itunes library to Cd with no problem, and also found I can back up my photos using the Canon software installed.
I just wondered if anyone else has lost the "copy all to CD" button, and what they did to get it back.
Many thanks.

Normally, you would just drag them (copy, not move) with the mouse--from the external drive to F:Music and Videos. Can't you do that? But I may be misunderstanding you.


First I would decide how many partitions you ultimately want to end up with on your internal drive.

You need the one named system

You need C

You don't need the others.

Plan 1: put all of your personal files on C and subdivide C with a folder structure: Music, Pictures, Video, Work, whatever suits you. 2 total partitions.

Plan 2: put only Windows and programs on C, and put all data on D. Subdivide D with a similar folder structure. 3 total partitions.

Plan 3: Put Windows on C. Use several different data partitions D, E, F, and so on. One for each data type (music, video, pictures, etc). 4 or more total partitions.

I would lean toward plan 2. You seem to have chosen plan 3.

There are advantages and disadvantages to each of those 3 plans. Plan 3 works, but having a bunch of partitions can be wasteful because you can never anticipate the proper size and growth rate of the data type on a partition.

Your pictures partition is already 80% full.

If you know for sure that you want to stay with those particular partitions, you should be able to use that tool to resize them.

Or you could delete all but system and C, then shrink C to maybe 80, then make new D, E, F, etc.

So you have a lot of control.

If you have everything backed up to the external, I would disconnect it temporarily. That way you can't make an error and foul that drive up accidentally with the tool.

You had best confirm what is on H:backups.

What is supposedly on E:C&E Conn and why that peculiar name?

Report back with your ideas and results of moving those files with a mouse.

I apologize if this has already been addressed. I honestly don't know what I'm doing. My Vista's not playing any of the music files on my computer or my iPod on any music player I use (iTunes, WinAmp, the Rhapsody that came with it), though it plays anything else that's online. Other sounds on the computer are also playing (MSN, AIM, system sounds). What it does exactly is, upon clicking any song in the media library, it shows intention to play it but then stays at 0:00, while recognizing the length of song, name of artist, etc. Did I miss something?

Not being that experienced, I'm a little confused w/ the way the Library sorts CDs into genres vs the way I could sort the Music Folders. They don't seem to relate. For example, the Library lists an album under "Rock" that I would like to move to another genre but I cannot figure a way to do this. On the other hand, I know I could play around w/ the folders so that this particular CD is in the right place. However, I'm not sure that if I take the time to organize my Music folders whether this will have any impact on how the Library sorts them.
If you can shed some light on this I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks, Nick.

A:Solved: Windows media music library vs music folders

Mp3 music files have tags that are kept inside the files themselves. The most common ones are Artist, Album, Track Title, Track Number, Release Year and Genre. When you put a file into the WMP library, the tags are read and stored, along with the file location.

So the tag data is what shows up in the WMP library and you can sort on various fields depending on which version you have. But the files can be put anywhere and named anyway you like. Most people use a certain naming convention like Artist-TrackNumber-Title.

If you want to sort the folders by genre you could do that, but you'll have to do it manually. You can do some manipulating of folders and filenames with tag editors. If you want to give that a try get Mp3Tag.

Are you close to a radio station's transmitter site and antenna? That sounds like "RFI" (Radio Frequency Interference" getting into your speaker system.

When you get it, unplug the speakers from the PC but leave them powered on and the volume up and see if you still get it. If you do it's RFI and the speaker system is picking it up or it's coming through the AC power line to the speakers. If this just started I would suspect either a bad cable ground or just a dirty plug connection somewhere in the system.

Hi there
Goede Morgen !!

Remember that W8 is still technically in BETA so there is more to come out.
Since multi-media and connectivity is very important this I'm sure will be fixed in the final builds of W8.

I shouldn't base your purchasing requirements against what's in a BETA build of an OS. -- Wait till the Final before making that decision -- and meantime use something like Winamp or plenty of other free music playing apps most of which can also stream to and from smart phones etc.

Cheers (Tot Ziens)

First, I wanted to listen to a clip on Amazon and I clicked "listen" for Windows Media Player and then another time for Real Player, since I have BOTH. All it would do was save it to my computer (entitled "hurl") and then I couldn't open it. It didn't even give the option of opening it--that was "grayed out."

Also, is there ANYwhere that I can just download a song without taking out a bank loan or giving them my firstborn? I went to Yahoo radio, too, and went through the sign-in procedure and then it wouldn't complete. The button just did nothing. I don't plan to do a lot of downloading music. I just want to get a song occasionally.

Hi There,
I have all my music uploaded onto OneDrive music folder.
Windows 8.1 Music app displays all my music on OneDrive for streaming. There's an option to download individual songs for local storage but that takes too long.. is there a way to download every single song through the Music app onto my Surface Pro 3 so that I have offline access to my music?

A:Force Music app to download all streaming music from OneDrive

Yes, you don't need any tools or apps, just go to OneDrive app or folder (in file explorer) right click on that > make it available offline! Now it'll start downloading everything in that folder + if you add anything to it from another device it'll be downloaded automatically

So I searched around for a bit and found a few discussions about the Music app crashing but none appear to be the problem I'm having I can open the app and do most things in Music Xbox when crashes app music playing it Search navigate around I can even play music most of the time except for one notable exception When you click on an artist or album the app opens a smaller window in the middle of the app where you can usually Xbox Music app crashes when playing music play the song along with a few other options like Play Top Songs or Explore Artist Whenever I click play from this window the app suddenly closes This does not happen with music that I have files locally on my hard drive it only happens with streaming music I can get streaming music to play as long as I can find a play button elsewhere in the app aside from this window that pops up in the middle of the screen But if a song is already playing I can skip back and forth and navigate around the app I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app and this fixes it for a little while but it eventually begins happening again It crashes with zero other apps or programs running I have AVG antivirus running but I disabled that for a while and it still crashes I noticed that when it does crash the Music app doesn't close completely as it's still listed along with other running apps if I hover in the upper left corner and drag my mouse down to view all running apps Thoughts

Searched the tutorial-collection from my problem, but couldn't find one there. So...

I've got my music-collection in a WD World Edition (White Light) -network drive. The path to the music is:

Network\MYBOOKWORLD\Public\Shared Music

The network drive also carries my photos and my videos.

I understand that I can make symbolic link from that location to the Music -library and that way the music should appear in the the Xbox Music -metro app, because I'd really like to use that app (and other metro apps for photo and video).

The problem is that I don't know how to make that symbolic link. I honestely don't even know wheather it works in W8 or only W7.

Can someone confirm this could be done similar way you can make it happen with SD-card.

A:Help! Music from network drive to Xbox Music App

Hi MSalo,

To create a symbolic link in windows follow these steps,

1. Go to your Music library and create a sub folder (Can be called anything)
2. Right click on the folder and select Include in Library and then select Music
3. Now delete this sub folder you have just created in the Music folder
4. Open uo command prompt and run as an administrator
5. At the command prompt type the following ...

mklink /d c:\Users\<Username>\Music\<Sub Folder Name> \\Network\MYBOOKWORLD\Public\Shared

6. Press Enter, you should get a message advising the link has been created and that's it

You can repeat this for all libraries you have setup in Windows

I am not sure if the title accurately tells what my issue is. I hope I can explain it.

When listening to music on my PC, it does not matter if I use Winamp, Songbird, Quicktime, Windows Media Player, or any other software. Every so often, there appears some sort of distortion, like the drive that the music is on slows down. I dont know if it is the driver or what. Its hard to explain. You have to hear it. I dont think its the mp3 file itself, cause I could play a song and it will be perfect, but then the next time I play it, it will distort. It is really driving my nuts cause I can't find the reason for it.

Anybody out here got any ideas? even crazy ones? Thanks.

2.There are tools for comparison Between the original data to the data that was copied?
If so, what are they?

A:transfer data through windows 7 by copy and paste perfect copy?

There is no reason why using copy and paste won't give you a perfect copy and in my view it's more reliable than using the Windows backup utility.

One program I've found invaluable is Microsoft's SyncToy, which you can download here: Download: SyncToy 2.1 - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

It will sync files between folders of the same name on two separate drives or partitions ( I always use the Echo procedure).

You might also want to consider using Windows 7's Robocopy function.

Now I want to do another clean install to get rid of the junk I have collected over the last couple months & because the copy will expire in a couple months. So my question is what is the best way to remove the evaluation copy & install the retail copy without losing all of my programs, drivers & user settings. I was thinking clone the area I want to save & then after the install happens merge the two back. Anyone have a better way or will the above work


A:win7 evaluation copy to a retail copy install

You can't clone and merge the two OS's. If you clean install by booting the new DVD to do a Custom install with Drive Tool formatting, you must reinstall your programs.

Many have reported excellent results doing an in-place Upgrade from the RC to any version using this workaround: Upgrade the Windows 7 RC to any retail version Icrontic Tech

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

A:Xbox Music App with music on 2nd drive

Make sure your index is searching and indexing those folders on the second drive - Xbox music (and videos, for that matter) only see media that has been indexed by search. You may want to look at the search/indexing options in the control panel to make sure the folders containing your media are being indexed - if they are, give the index a rebuild. That can fix things (I find that on my tablet sometimes).

I wasn't sure if this was the right place to post this but if not, I'm sure someone will let me know!

I have a lot of music files on my hard drive and because they have come from so many sources over the last few years their file names are inconsistent. I'd like all of the music files to be in the same format in the My Music folder itself and not just in an application such as Win Amp where I can tag the music.

It's driving me crazy (I know it shouldn't!!!) and I am really not interested in changing each one seperately . . .

I know there has to be a program (hopefully, free!) that can do this easily. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much.

A:Organizing Music Files In My Music

Hi, that's always been a problem of mine until I decided to act. I didn't use a program - I spent a whole day renaming, retagging, organizing the files. If you have a program like iTunes which has a music library feature, filenames shouldn't be a problem, but if you're paranoid about filenames(like me), I suggest you do it manually. Delete all entries of the music library(if your player has one), but DON'T DELETE THE FILES. Making subfolders in My Music (ex. by artist, by genre, etc) should help. Once you've renamed everything, re-transfer them to your music library. Done!

A:CD2CD Copy Protection (Avoiding 1:1 Copy)

Yes, but most of us hate it by virtue of the DMCA saying we can't work around it, and the fact that we can't make backups of the things we buy. Personally, I'd be a good natured developer and avoid such things like the plague. All of them can be circumvented if you try hard enough anyway, and so all you'd really be doiing is making it hard to copy for most people but no harder for the seasoned eyepatched pegleggers.

I would love it if there was a third option "Copy and Rename". I would get so much done so much faster.

I'm hoping there is some kind of registry tweak I can do to get this working. Perhaps holding down a key while dragging the file over will open up more options. I hope there is a way.

(Specifically, I open Firefox, I get to a website, I drag the URL to a folder on my desktop for later reading. The next URL will have a similar "file name". When I drag it to the folder, thats when I run into a problem. If only Windows 7 would give me the option to "Copy and Rename".)

A:I want to Copy & Rename, not Copy & Replace

The copy and rename is the bottom option. "Copy, but keep both files"
However, what you are looking for has to do with Firefox, Firefox handles this differently.

Ok so Bill will send out his men to shoot me.
I have given m$ too much of my precious life already.

What I am trying to do is make a copy of a copy of xp office that has been altered to not require the imput of the codenos, I made a version using both nero cd copy and the built in xp roxio version via a copy to docs that will only work on the re-writer and not the normal cd.

Also and more annoying, why will nero suddenly not copy music cds saying that they are protected. I dont want the original in my dirty car.

Hey! My comp can play music but when I play DVDs or run .avis I only get background music and the vocal audio is so low it's almost muted. I can't figure it out. I have DivX installed and AC3Filter as well but I use WMP and Cyberlink PowerDVD, no vocals from either. Do I need codecs? How do I find out which I need?

A:Music Plays / No Vocals in Movies / Background Music Plays

I've been able to boost sound with the AC3Filter and get DVD vocals now through WMP but I still am not getting any vocals from my DVDs when played through my Cyberlink PowerDVD. Any suggestions? I'm sure I'm missing a codec or something but I can't figure out what. The website I used to go to to download audio codecs for WMP11 looks down for the count so I'm at a loss.

I deleted my music from my music app and cannot re-add it. The files were added automatically the first time, but now the app won't add them. Can I refresh the cache for the music app or what can I do?

A:Solved: re-add music to music app

Never mind, I figured out how to do it.

This isn't a big issue but on my PC I have these shared folders:-

Public Pictures (F:\Users\Public\Pictures)
Public Videos (F:\Users\Public\Videos)
Music (F:\Users\Public\Music)

Everything works as it should but why is Music not called Public Music or have I messed up the name relocating the default drive?

A:Public Music is just Music

This is how it should look:

I'm currently in the process of copying files back from the cloud in the exact same location where I had them before and now it says that the file name is too long and prompts to see whether I want to skip the file or not. The error message given does not
give the full file name or the path so it is impossible to see which files were copied successfully or not. This never happened with XP! Then afterwards I found that some of the files with long names did copy successfully whereas others didn't. I find this
to be a very user unfriendly process and I'm totally confused! These are critical files and I'm sure I haven't exceeded 260 characters or whatever. This is soOoO frustrating!!


A:file copy error message not sufficient + file name too long will not copy

Hi ,

There is a limit of filename length within Windows Explorer. In the Windows API (with some exceptions discussed in the following paragraphs), the maximum length for a path is MAX_PATH, which
is defined as 260 characters.
The shell and the file system have different requirements. It is possible to create a path with the Windows API that the shell user interface is not able to interpret properly.
This means that your long filename can only be handled at the command prompt level and you cannot drag and drop an illegal length filename within Windows Explorer.

Please simplify your folders and titles.

More information, please check the part of Maximum Path Length Limitation in the link below. Cai

I copied 175GB of files to a different disk. But some would not copy and it said path too long. But how do I know which one they were. All it said was do I want to skip, not skip xyz file. So I deleted them all from the second disk and want to start again

Good day to everyone. I have a cd I burned with several songs, and am trying to make a copy of it, without much success. The copies I made were run at 4x using Nero The copies(4 I tried), all have problems, skips, slowdowns in music, and other glitches. I know how finiky burned cd can be, so I don`t even know if it is possible to make a quality copy of a copy. I even tried changing the original burned cd into mp3s onto my harddrive, and then burning it using Nero, no diff. Thanks for any hints/tips anyone might have.

In the Windows7 Explorer, when I move a file it makes a copy with - Copy.jpg (or whatever extension) appended to the filename. How can I make Move actually move from the source directory and overwrite the file in the target directory like you would expect it to?

To further explain:left click and drag to select files at source directory
right click and drag selected files to destination directory
let go of right click and menu presented offers choice of move or copy
selecting move makes copies of files instead of overwriting
ie: if file.jpg exists in destination, the new file.jpg would be copied as file-Copy.jpg instead of overwriting original.

A:copy and move are both copy?

Works fine when I tried it on x64 build 7068, what build are you using?
