Dell media experience DVD burning

Q: Dell media experience DVD burning

Hi. I'm stuck and can't seem to get help from the companies I buy from. Yea! Anyway, I am hoping someone out there can help me. I have Dell Media Experience. And, I installed an external HP DVD burner. I have the codecs I need downloaded. However, when the media experience is almost completed, it gives an "Unknown Error" message and won't finish the burn. Any ideas on this? I have searched and searched, but no answer and Dell, nor HP are any help. I am guessing the problem is the software, and not the HP burner. Dunno?????
Thanks for any ideas! Am

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.)

Bad optical drive. Currently the highest failure rate of any desktop computer component. Just because it is new does not mean it is working properly. Also look at all other parameters

Does anyone know much about this software that came installed on my Dell 4600 desktop? It automatically launches whenever I put a DVD in the drive... which would be fine, but I think it's a pretty crappy software (no time displays, for example) and would rather just use Windows Media Player to watch DVDs. However, even after I go to My Computer, right-click D: DVD DRIVE, and choose properties, then choose WMP to run when a DVD movie is put in the drive, it STILL launches Dell Media Experience. Is this normal? I don't need WMP to be the default, but I'd at least like to choose which program is launched to watch a DVD...

The Dell Media Experience just seems like a half-baked kindergarten version of a media software and I do not like it one bit. My four year old laptop has a much better DVD viewer installed on it.

A:Problem with Dell Media Experience

heres my suggestion. if u really dont need dell media experience i would just remove it entirely from your add/remove programs. i have had a dell dimension 2400 and a 4600 and both times i removed it as it was an annoying piece of junk.hope this helps u. my guess is somehow it may have gotten corrupted along the sure your computer will work fine without it. mine did.

Normally when I go to add/remove programs, I just click on change/remove and it's even easy enough for me to follow the uninstall instructions.

But with Dell Media Experience, I'm having a bit of trouble. I click on uninstall, then some installshield wizard loads, and then there's a pop-up that says clicking OK will remove the program.

I click OK, then it says something about power-saving settings. It says "When I press the power button on my computer:" then there is a drop down menu that shows Shut Down, Ask Me What To Do, Do Nothing, Hibernate, and Stand By.

Which do I choose and why is it asking me that?

A:Having trouble uninstalling Dell Media Experience

I've been trying to find information on if/how cassettes can be made into MP3 files on my computer (Vista Home Premium). I've seen mention of freeware called AUDACITY, and a $17.00 product called MEDIA DIGITIZER. I'm usually quite hesitant about freeware (unless I learn about it HERE that is.) But, I'm not confident about other vendors either.

I'm kinda clueless about how to do this, but it appears that it should be do-able, much to my surprise. Does anyone have pros/cons about these products, or another one to recommend to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance!

A:Any Experience With "media Digitizer" Product?

What you should look for is to have the use of a cassette tape player with a line level output (not a speaker output).There is a tutorial here: on microsoft software, but you can substitute alternative audio software, and Audacity certainly would be suitable: detail will be different between the software, but the general procedure is the same.Also, if you wanted to make a normal CD to play in a CD player, you would record the contents of the tape into a stereo 16bit 44.1KHz file (or files for multiple tracks), then burn those tracks to a music CD. (Up to 74 min per CD).

I am looking for a portable External HD that will work on a Dell Laptop USB 3.
I need for quick transfers of large photo files.

I find in Amazon products purporting transfer rates of over 2GB/sec on a USB 3 port.

I want to know if anyone has experience with Dell Inspiron or Dell XPS Laptop that come with USB 3 capable of transfer rates of 2GB/Sec? & works without any flow?

Or the technique is still in infancy and not like the Apple's thunderbolt?

There are Western Digital,Buffalo,Iomega...
At one time on internet forum discussion telling some of the Buffalo has the Samsung's HD in it [rather than Western Digital] and if one get that would be like lottery win!!
If any of the above will transfer those claimed rates of transfer on a Dell Inspiron or a Dell XPS laptop?

A:Intel Graphics Media Experience Question

My experience with ANY Intel integrated graphics is that they SUCK big time so if you plan on playing games with it, I would diffently consider buying a actual video card. Intel says that it only supports shader model 2.0 which means that it is only a Directx 9.0 card.

I have a Dell XPS 15 L502X running windows 8.1 Pro. Dell's official drivers page says the laptop is not tested for windows 10 upgrade (Product Support | Dell US

So is anybody out there who has upgraded to windows 10? Are you facing any driver issues or any other issues? Is there anything else that I should be aware of before proceeding with my upgrade?

A:Dell XPS 15 L502X upgrade experience?

I've upgraded 8 systems to Windows 10. Seven of them Dell desktops and laptops. Some up to 6 years old. Some running Windows 7 Home or Pro, some running Windows 8.1 core.

Windows 7 and 8.1 drivers usually work in Windows 10. If there are any yellow flags in the Device Manager after installing Windows 10, loading a Windows 7 or 8.1 driver from the Dell drivers page for that model fixed it.

2. What is an optimal quality of mp3 to be listened good?
3. I grab music from YouTube... which site to use to convert it to mp3?

I have recorded a number of shows and movies using Vista media center but am having problems burning them to DVDs. When I look at the file size of a 2-3 hr movie, the file size is somewhere between 6Gb-8Gb. Since the capacity of my DVDs are only 4.7Gb, I can only assume that most movie DVDs are using some type of compression software that decompresses the file as it plays. My question is, what type of software do I need to allow me to burn these files to a DVD so I still have them without using up all of my hard drive storage space.

If they have Windows, they have media player. Many programs will play wmv files (Like Winamp), so this shouldn't be an issue in any but the most extreme cases.

A:CD Burning software ( covering all media)!!

I wonder if you have set Nero to write an "Audio CD" instead of a "DATA CD" . Audio CD is recorded like a music CD, and only certain types of music files are compatable.
However, if you change the setting to DATA CD, then any type of file can be written (unless corrupted in some way that Nero rejects)

If you are talking about it saying the name at the bottom while it's playing in Windows media. Just before you click burn look at the top of your "play list" it should say Burn Disc. Click on it and Rename it what you like then click burn at the bottom.

Hello there

I am running MP11 on HP Pavilion Notebook.

I have been able to burn discs before, but lately have not. When I start to burn, it says "writing to disc" but there is no green progress bar. It says complete for the first 3 or four songs and then the burner speeds up and all of a sudden it says all the songs are complete. It then finalizes the disc although I know it hasn't burned all the songs as it has gone too fast. When I try to play the disc or simply explore it, there are no files there.
I downloaded Media Monkey and tried burning there to no avail. Has anyone else had this problem?
BTW, I cannot burn audio discs either.

My Win pro desktop was left on overnight last week and in the AM it would not wake up It was still running but dead I powered off at the switch and restarted nothing No flickers no sound just an occasional red HD active lamp flicker I did this several times with the same result I unplugged everything took the box to The Computer Guy for some diagnostic help and as soon as he powered everything up BOOM the system was alive and Burning recognize apps media won't well That's a head scratcher says I Did you unplug the power cord from the wall says Burning apps won't recognize media he Well no I didn't Isn't OFF off Apparently not Something apparently stays powered when the fans etc are not running and keeping things confused Who knew The next day I went to burn a DVD and some CDs for my old friends The burner was seen by windows and will respond to eject commands but none of my burning apps was able to see any media They just keep Burning apps won't recognize media running in search mode till I kill the program I fumbled around unloading and loading the driver that Windoz says was running and current I did some searches on the intertubes for the problem but nothing matched my situation My next move is to haul it back to The Computer Guy and see what it is that I'm obviously doing wrong ed to add In the shop we didn't even open the case Before I took it in I opened it and powered it up to see if a fan was dead or if there was some where obvious indicating that the smoke had gotten out All seemed as it should be after I cleaned it up a bit with some canned air Canned air what a concept Any thoughts Thanks in advance

My aunt is giving me her laptop PC because she is going on a spiritual journey
and at the convent they will not allow her her own PC.

this computer has had problems, apparently when new it somehow got a "virus" or the OS was just bad,
so a computer expert freind of hers set up a new user account to bypass the bad one and it worked.

the computer a few years later got infected by "firesearch" adware, I deleted it with malwarebytes. (MSE will not work on this comp)

The thing is I want to do a new OS install and I cannot find the original disc. Can I use a 3rd party disc? is it cheaper to
do an OS re install myself or have an expert do it? the computer will NOT go into safemode. If you try it will BSOD.

But a Windows OS CD, boot to it, format, install. Then install all drivers beginning with the chipset driver. Then install a good anti virus app. Then go to Windows Update and install all updates (except for hardware / driver updates - never get them from Windows update). Then you're good to go.

I use XP media center to record TV programs, but when I try to burn them on to DVDs I get the message "Unsupported file type". Is this because the programs are copyright protected?

Well, maybe.

However, maybe the file type isn't actually supported. You may need extra software to convert it to a DVD format, depending on which burning program you use.

Recently my del xps 400 started falling, intermitently(that is a few minutes its perfect, then a few minutes it lags like hell) into lag pits during gaming(any games).
But that is the least of my worries now(altough i sense a connection between the two events)(the second follows):
About yesterday my pc started giving of a foul mettalic smell. i am not sure where it is coming from although i note that of all the parts the likeliest suspect is my GPU(Nvidia 7600 GS), i opened the pc and found it to be very hot and it seemed the smell was concentrated around this "object".
So i opened the temp monitor and it showed that during periods of relative inactivity the temperature og the gpu is in the range between 60 Celcius to 80 C'.
The question is - is that normal temperature levels for an inactive gpu?

I have this strange problem with my media center. Whenever I try to use the 'burn Video DVD' in the media center, nothing really happens. When I select a recorded program to burn on DVD, the program starts. After a perhaps 1 hour or burning, my DVD writer opens with the new written DVD.
However, when I try to play this new dvd I notice that nothing is written on the DVD? I even takes vista a very long time to recognise the DVD...
Does anybody know why this is happening?

I run Vista 64 on a AMD Athlon 64 (3200) on a MSI K8T Neo motherboard with 2 GB Ram. My DVD writer is a Samsung WriteMaster. I can be a lack of space, because I have 500GB free on my HD.

I recently installed Pinnacle's InstantCopy v. 8 and, during the install, was warned "Installing this program will change some settings and may render other applications useless." (paraphrasing). I agreed and, sure enough, all of my other CD- or DVD-burning app's suddenly would not work, including Nero and Windows Media Player. Nero gave me the error "Drive is in use by another application" and Media Player simply won't recognize my CDRW drive as a recording device. I have managed to restore functionality to Nero by disabling Windows' IMAPI device, but don't know what to do to be able to resume burning CD's with Media Player.
I've uninstalled InstantCopy and this hasn't helped. There must be some registry value or driver modification that I need to reset. Can anybody give me any advice?

Hi Ceit Alcorn and welcome to TSF

Download and install Cool96. It will do a fabulous job on recording your own stuff and will save as a valid .wav file. You also don't have to rely on media player to do your recording. There are some free burners that will do a very good job of recording your CD's.

You can get Cool96 at this link:

A:windows media player burning problems

I have same or similar prob with WMP11. Not sure when it first occurred, as I havent tried a burn till today. I have two drives. Tried with both drives and different new discs.

Insert a blank disk and

Explorer pops up showing disc is recognized.
WMP switches from 'No Disc' to 'Unknown' over on LHS under Library
'Insert a blank CD' (IABCD) stays just above the burn list.
I close the Explorer window just in case. Now I drag some titles over. IABCD is replaced momentarily by 'Calculating...' and then back to IABCD.

I then click on 'Start Burn' The CD tray opens, 'Insert Media' message box appears ...

now I am in a loop.

If I click on Cancel, WMP just goes back to square one (flashes up Burn Complete, despite tray being open) then goes inactive and waiting for user interaction.
If instead I push the disc back in, Explorer comes up showing the disc and WMP remains with the Insert Media message box (until I click cancel again, when 'Burn Complete' shows down in bottom bar).

Just to be clear, no burning happens!

I've now installed a bundle of new codecs, and have tested them - none are broken.The main (largest file) still throws the same error - however, the smaller files with no substance, give a new error that says:The duration of the movie is less than 5 seconds and cannot be imported This I understand. Their is 1 file than runs for 2 mins, I can run this successfully (but no sound?) Finally, I've noticed the main file shows a % size of 209.1% when selected, I have -109.1% remaining - whats that all about?Any experience here greatly appreciated.

Good morning! Having an issue with CD burning... I attempted to burn an audio CD using Windows Media Player v. 11. The playlist loaded as usual and appeared to burn without a problem; the only abnormal thing was it burned incredibly quickly and the burn line in the disc was markedly lighter than usual. The CD plays with no problems on my PC, but when I attempt to play it in a regular CD player, I get no sound. The disc is playing because the counter is advancing.

All the media in WMP plays/accesses without a problem, and I haven't received any error messages. The last project I burned successfully (yesterday) was a photo slideshow, and I was able to rip music from a CD this morning just before the problems began. Since then, I can't play CDs in WMP and also am having issues accessing the program itself.

A:CD Burning Issues - Windows Media Player

The WMP burning software isn't very good, especially when trying to burn Audio CD's.

Try CDBurnerXP, a good freeware burning program. When you burn an Audio CD make sure you finalize the disc.

For the other problems with WMP, try reinstalling it.

I have recently started having problems with Window Media Player, when it comes to burning CD's. It's play's CD's fine and rips fine - but doesn't burn CD's like it used to.

What happens is that it will burn the first track and then closes off the burning session with the Windows warning message stating that it can't burn the files and recommends lowering the write speed or try a different CD brand. Well I have lowered the speed to 1x and tried various brands of CD's, but the problem is still there.

Could the problem be with the actual CD-ROM Drive and not Windows Media Player at all? How can I determine?

Problem began after using Nero 5.5 to burn a CD. Don't know what was different becuase I had no prior problems burning before. Suddenly, every time I clicked on an MP3 or tried to access my CD burner, the system would hang. Tried researching the issue through other tech forums. Tried turning off the IMAPI CD Serivce. Still hung. Unistalled and reinstalled Nero, updated WMP from 9 to 10. Tried other pler software. Nothing. Became so frustrated decided to reformat.

Reformatted hard drive and installed the follwing in this order... (XP, Norton Internet Security, Office 2000, Office Updates, XP Service Pack 2, Avant Browser 10, Google Toolbar, Share-aza, and iTunes) Through automatic updates installed all recommended Windows updates.

Any program that accesses an MP3 file or the CD Burner (Iomega 16x10x40) is still hanging the system.

I know burning CDs is old school. Nobody burns cds anymore. But it's for my old 2005 Hyndai Elantra car that has a 10 disc changer cd player. I want to burn cds for my car. I have used windows media player and even iTunes to burn cds. I really use windows media player to burn cds. I made sure I was burning an audio cd and of course windows media player burns cd as a data cd instead of an audio cd. This is really annoying and frustrating. So now I use Power2go and its great. Power2go isn't free but it's worth the money. Power2go was able to burn cd as audio cd while windows media player could not.

Last night I bought a new DellXPS13 and this morning turned it on. It has a plastic smell after booting it up that caused my nose to burn. When I started charging it it had a slight burning smell, never had this experience with other new laptops in the past. Some say this is normal and will stop in a few days and some say I should return it. Any input?

i would return it - I would not expect a burning smell

Hi there.

I am using Windows Media Player to burn a playlist to a disc, and when I drag the 79:23 playlist to the burn window, WMP splits it into two playlists, cutting the last track. The empty disc reads at 79:57, and the same playlist fits fine in Real Player. I could just use Real, but it doesn't do volume leveling without a subscription, so I'd prefer WMP.

Hey Guys I am trying to burn MP3 files in Windows Media Player 11 (OS - Windows 7) so that I can play in the CD/Audio Player using the CD. When I burn them (around 25 Files), I can see the status goes upto 100% & says completed. But when I open the disc, I can only see one file burnt. I in fact copied every files to the burn list & then clicked burn. I also tried through Windows Explorer (where we can "Burn Disc" option) but then again it is taking me to WinMedia the same issue couple of times. Any help, so that I can burn all files. Hoping to see your reply.

A:Windows Media Player 11 - File burning issue.

If you burned them over to an empty CD, are you sure your CD supports being burnt? And if you burned your files onto it, and only 1 file appeared, could that be a "playlist" containing all the songs? Try playing the CD, and see what happens.

And are you sure you burnt them in the correct format?

Ive never used the windows media player to burn data cds with.What you might try is transfer the songs a little at a time that you want to burn as a data cd from your documents directly to the cd/dvd drive and see if that works for you.If you have a cd/dvd drive that can read and burn dvds put them on a dvd instead that way you can put a lot more on a dvd than a cd.

Laptop - HP Pavilion dv9000

Problem - When I burn CDs using Windows Media Player (11.0.6001.7000) they are not recognised in any player. The strange thing is it worked for me until about two weeks ago and now suddenly any CD I make wont play on anything. Windows Media Player does not display any errors when burning either so not sure what the problem is. Any ideas?

*edit* - Just tried with other programs and had the same result, it burned in Real Player without any error message then wont play in any CD player.

I bought and downloaded some karaoke songs to use in singing at care centers and wanted to burn them. They all play just fine (they're in mp3 format). I couldn't do anything with them on media player 11, so rolled back to 10, which I was more familiar with. It says inspecting on the first song and the rest say 'ready to burn' but then nothing happens from there. What could be wrong and what can I try? Thanks, prisonsinger

Sorry if this isnt in the right section I bought the new Sony Vaio media center cd center un-userfriendly interface burning Media / problem pc and everything is working fine I was really enjoying media center edition windows until i tried to teach my dad who the pc Media center cd burning problem / un-userfriendly interface actually belongs to how to burn a music cd The Media center cd burning problem / un-userfriendly interface best way for me to explain this problem is Media center cd burning problem / un-userfriendly interface by going through a step by step of what I do to make a CD I insert a blank disc into the drive Media center tells me i have inserted a blank disc and asks me wether i want to make this into a music cd I click yes I now enter the name of the cd i am about to create I name it quot Dance music quot and click ok Now i am alowed to browse my music collection in order to choose which songs i want to add to my cd I click on the quot Albums quot tab navigate to quot Bravo hits quot I now see the songs on the album to the right of the screen i navigate there and see a little check box for me to quot tick quot choose which songs i want on my CD All good so far Yes Here comes the problem I want to PLAY the songs on this album we are still in the same screen as before with the check boxes on the right hand side I cannot play the music i only have the ability to check the songs without hearing them The way around this is by navigating back to the first screen under Albums this is the screen where i have all my ripped albums on display I put my cursor over the quot Bravo hits quot cd and then press the Play button on my remote Now i can hear the songs play Great right NO Because i dont have the ability to quot tick quot choose the songs to add to my new music CD But once again there is a way around that now i just have to click the back button then navigate to quot bravo hits quot again now i can click my quot ok quot button to see the songs again with the check boxes on the right hand side I also see the quot now playing quot animation that bar visualizer thing So i can use the quot Next previos quot buttons on my remote to navigate the cd so i can hear which songs i want to add and then click on quot ok quot to add a quot tick quot to the check box so that they are on my new cd which i am creating In my opinion this is a massive failure Users like my father who would not have thought about this would have been at a COMPLETE loss if they wanted to hear the songs which they wanted to add This could all have been avoided by just making it possible to play the song in the same window as the check boxes Is it just me that has seen this problem Am i the only one who finds this completly un-userfriendly Does any have a solution to my problem Thanks in advance nbsp

You can either play the songs or rip them. A ripping program is not going to allow you to listen to the songs and a player is not going to let you rip them. All programs work that way. I use Nero Express to create a CD and I use Windows Media Player to listen to them.

I used to use DVD X Copy and it exclusively wanted to use DVD-R to write to. I've recently switched to Nero Ultra 7 and it only wants to use DVD+R/RW. Why is this? Is it possible to get Nero to accept -R blank media since this is the only kind I have on hand?

A:Having trouble burning a cd using Kodak Easyshare and Windows media player!

If you can "click and copy" to the CD you must be running a UDF program, right?? InCD or Direct CD...or am I miss reading what you mean by "click and copy to the CD??" Disable the UDF program and the burners will record again
