DVD works with other drives but not mine, while other DVDs work

Q: DVD works with other drives but not mine, while other DVDs work

I recently bought a Windows DVD to put it on the new PC I'm building for my mom. That PC has troubles with the DVD drive itself (stupid motherboard doesn't have IDE..), so I figured I'd set up a bootable USB to install Windows before the adapter arrives. Problem is, the installation DVD isn't playing on my drive (I tried another DVD with a movie on it before, so I don't think its my drive). I brought it to a PC shop and for them it worked fine, even though its quite scratched on the back (I guess the person selling those DVDs doesn't know how to ship them properly) I didn't wanna pay 20 bucks for them copying the DVD, even though I'll probably end up having to do that.

Any ideas what the problem is, or what I can do? I'm not sure if the DVD will work in my moms drive either..

Preferred Solution: DVD works with other drives but not mine, while other DVDs work

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My computer won't work on my computer. I checked the audio settings and it isn't muted. It works on other computers. I have also tried other mics and still doesn't work.

In soundMAX Control Panel, the microphone section has an exlamation(!) mark beside it. THhis is in the "Playback" settings.

On the "Record" settings, there is no exclamation mark on microphone.

Plesae help
Thanks!

Hi All

I have a flash drive. It works great in ANY PC except mine - It picks up the USB drive but shows it as if it has a raw file format - cannot open the flash drive but it shows up on my comp. Now you might think my PC it the problem, which it probably is, but all other USB hardware (including OTHER flash drives) works fine on my PC. Why does my PC not detect it properly? Any suggestions?

Thanks

A:USB flash drive works in other PC's, just not in mine

Connect it to another pc, copy all to it, then format to NTFS & replace your data.

One of my many drive is the FreeAgent GoFlex Drive 1.5 TB pocket sized external drive - it works fine on every other computer but on mine it stopped working - actually when I plug it in to my computer it freezes my computer every time I plug it in however to unfreeze my computer all I have to do is unplug the drive (plug-in and unplug I mean connect and disconnect USB cable from my USB port on my computer).

I have a 700 watt Power supply and my other USB devices work just fine which includes all my other external hard drives - I did replace my Geforce 8800 GT grap[hics card with the Geforce GTx550 Ti graphics card.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:FreeAgent GoFlex Drive works on every computer but mine

Have you tried connecting it to a different USB port? It's possible that the port you are using is miswired and is putting out the wrong amount of voltage.

Hi guys,

I have an HP Pavilion dv6 - 6c01se (AMD Processor)
I recently updated my laptop to Windows 8, but after not liking it much I reverted back to the original and activated Windows 7 Home Premium x64 with the key that came with the laptop. However, since then the laptop has been acting weird and sometimes does not respond at all, it worked beautifully before on Windows 7.

One of my friends has the same laptop though I'm not sure if he has the Intel one or the AMD, but I was thinking if I could use his laptop to create recovery discs and use the to restore my laptop to factory conditions because I screwed up my recovery partition also after the Windows 8 install.

Can I use the recovery discs created from his laptop and use them to restore my laptop and then activate it using my Window's key ?

Thanks !

A:Will a Recovery disc from another laptop work on mine ?

The factory install on HP is the worst possible install of Win7 one can have, with the worst load of bloatware in the industry smothering the best OS ever so that you'll never even know what its native performance is like.

What I would do is follow these steps to do a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is a vastly better install than the factory bloatware install and has been used by a million consumers without a single complaint.

Be sure to read the Special Note for HP Owners at the end. If you can still boot Factory Recovery via F11 then there may be a Minimal Recovery choice which is nearly as good as a Clean Reinstall. If not then I'd delete all partitions during the booted install.

So can some help me out here probably tell me what they need to see why it reboots

Update the chipset drivers for your motherboard and then install the latest wireless adapter driver too.

I see you have OCZ ram. Set the correct timings and Vdimm in the motherboard bios manually. Their website has this info for your RAM.

Hey, hoping someone can help. I cant burn CD's or DVD's, at all. It comes back with an error 380136-24-0000000. I looked for this on various search engines and came across a microsoft fix but when i run the fix, the fix itself gets an error haha. So i done it the old fashioned 'do it yourself' way, removing the upper and lower thing in the registry but that has not helped.

I have tried a few burning programmes but none of them work. But as i say, the DVD player plays DVDs. Its really confusing me so any help would be really appreciated.

I have a Toshiba L300-20D and windows Vista 32 bit.

Thanks in advance folks

Hello,
I'm running XP on a 2 YO desktop. My two CD/DVD drives functioned perfectly until the other day. I've installed no new programs, but I think a Microsoft update happened at about this time.
I tried the MS fix, deleting both upper and lower (i forgot the entire name) files in the registry. The I tried the MR FIXIT auto tool from Windows, no luck. I tried the solution I found on this forum here 525621-solved-dvd-cd-rom-drive.

I see both drives in explorer, and trouble shooter in device mgr says they both are functioning. But, they both indicate that they are empty even though there is a disk in both. One disk is blank and the other I tried is a commercial dvd. No luck with either.

TIA-
Donna

I have an HP media center PC. We had to replace the dvd writer/cd writer combo with a regular cd writer after the original drive quit. We now have this new CD writer as well as a dvd rom drive. I tried to play a DVD movie in the dvd rom drive and it wouldn't play. I went to My Computer and highlighted that drive and it does not show that a DVD is even in the "tray". I tried the DVD in the Windows Media Player in both drives and it always says "Media Center cannot detect a video DVD in the DVD Rom drive. Please insert a video DVD into the drive." I've tried playing different DVDs in Windows Media Player too and I just can't get any DVD to play in any program in either drive. Help!
 

A:DVD drives will not play DVDs

You probably need to go into the program you use to play the DVD and make sure that it's listed there. I'm guessing that the DVD player that died was the one used to play DVDs before?

As far as I know I havent installed any type of programs that would alter this, as Im still using same programs to backup my dvds as before.

A:Disappearing optical drives (DVDs) in certain parts of Win 7

By default Windows 7 hides a empty optical drive.  You can confirm if this is the case by inserting a disc in both drive, if this is the case both drives should now be visible.
 
You can change this to that the drive will always be visible by using the directions below.
 
1.  Click Start, Control Panel and then Tools.
 
2.  Click Folder options, and then select the View tab.
 
3.  Clear the Hide empty drives in the Computer folder check box and click OK.

Trying to make data disc like I used to do with Nero software. "Burn fails." Spits out the disc. Tried un-installing Nero and re-installing with OEM disc that came with my LiteOn burner. All DVDs in stores seem to be this 16x speed. Last ones I had were 8x, which worked fine. But I've used them all up so I can't try an 8x to see if it still works with 8x. The burner is described on its box as a 16x.

Any one else buy new 16x DVDs that don't work?

Would appreciate any help or ideas.

Usually Vista keeps sounding the device connect and device disconnect dongs for a few minutes and then every once in a while says the drive needs to be formatted, but the drives work fine on my Laptop that's running Vista Home Premium 32-bit. Is this a common problem with x64 or is there something wrong with my system?

thanx

A:USB hard drives/thumb drives to work

when I hook the usb thumb drive to the usb port on my printer, Vista recognizes it and lets me see the files on the drive, it also lets me copy a file to it but then freezes after it finishes copying (the copy window has a full progress bar and say "about 0 seconds remaining".

A:Some DVDs don't work. What's the deal?

Here's what I think......

Assuming we're talking about DVDs encoded in DVD-Video format, (Standard you rent it at Blockbuster), the drive is probably defective. It doesn't take much misalignment to cause a drive to lock-up on a slightly off disc.
You're the first person I've run into that uses "Real Player" as a DVD player. What you run into most often is; WinDVD, Nero Showtime, and "PowerDVD". So, unless the newer copy protection schemes are causing the player lock-up, (a possibility) I would suspect the drive.

Thus far, I have had 3 of the Toshibas, none of which have impressed me.

Your DVDs could be corrupted since your laptop was corrupted and when you made the DVDs are corrupted. You need to get an exact Asus  notebook with the exact version of Win7 of not infected system.If the beginning is crooked the end is crooked, GIGO (Garbage In, Garbage Out).
 
Option 2 leave factory defaults out and clean reinstall WIN7.

So now im really confused!im thinking why wouldnt it work. I did all i could think of! I even went into device manager looked up the drive and saw if it was working properly and it passed. i don't know if i need anything to download so that i can actually have audio working for watching dvds.

I can't get my head around this one.

I've not played an audio CD in a while, but I put one in today and it simply didn't work. The PC failed to recognise the CD was in the drive.

I thought it might be the CD and so tried another CD, and another, and one more for good measure - none worked.

I tried a DVD to see if it was the drive, the DVD worked fine. I tried a software CD, that was fine as well.

The drive is slightly old, from my previous PC which I upgraded in December/January. I've not tried a CD since and I'm wondering if the issue has been there all along.

Does anyone have any ideas?

A:Audio CDs Not Recognised - DVDs work fine.

Are they burned cd's? Try a retail audio cd bought at a store if you are trying a burned cd.

Make sure you are not creating a multi-session disk and ensure that you finalize the disc. Also dvd players have an easier time reading DVD+R than DVD-R.

A:CD works, DVD does not and floppy drives gone?

First, is this a Desktop or a Laptop? Personally I think the DVD drive is on it's way out and needs replaced. As for the Floppy drive, it is either lost a cable connection or is loose. That is if this is a Desktop. If it is a Laptop I still think the DVD drive is about dead and the floppy could need reseated or it may be bad as well.

DVD drives are fairly cheap these days and floppys aren't worth having anymore.

Hi to all,
I recently bought a Scan internal card reader, installed it, my PC recognized it, installed the drivers automatically, also a windows update was available for the card, installed everything & seems to work fine. The reader recognizes all the cards i give it including the USB, however I cannot manage to see the usual removable drives an internal card reader usually displays when it is attached to the PC.

The drive only appears when a card is inserted, is this normal?

Thanks for your help..

A:Will a works database work?

Works will only "work" if it has an actual database like Access to enter your data into. You can set up one database and enter the data there directly. If you are on a network you can share the database and have forms set up for data entry. If you are in different locations you could use some kind of program like PCAnywhere and the remote person could dial in and do data entry on the database. There are way too many options so you might want to give us soem kind of idea on what your setup is and how to accomplish it.

CTRL-A has never worked for me, in any application. Instead of selecting all, CTRL-A pastes, the same as CTRL-V, only when you use CTRL-A, in addition to pasting, it also makes a system sound, kind of like a knock sound. Out of desperation to identify the sound I looked control panel sounds and listened to all of them, it's not there.

Thanks,

A:Will Works 7 work on a Windows 8 machine?

I would not even bother. It is not even a supported package by Microsoft. I would not be surprised if Microsoft did not incorporate something into the Windows 8 code to keep their discontinued software from being able to be installed. Works 7 was for Windows 98, Works 9 is the last one that could possibly work with Windows 8.

i have been having the same or similar problem. it started last week. I am able to connect and surf the web from my home network, but cannot surf on any other connection.

I stay in hotels quite often and have not been able to access webpages on any of their internet connections. niether wireless or wired work. I can get an ip from their router but when i open internet explorer after about a minute I only get "Page cannot be displayed" no matter what address i type in. same results at 3 different hotels.

I am able to ping websites (www.yahoo.com, www.google.com......) in the command prompt. but still nothing in internet explorer.

As soon as I get home I connect and can view webpages no problem.

let me know if you come up with a solution.

Hi,

I see you didnt get a reply.

As far as I remember The connection listed on the network connections page as Blue tooth Pan is a Network Connection allowing you to connect to the internet say via a smart fone or other bluetooth enabled device with an internet connection.

Blue devices such as a mouse or keyboard are listed on the devices page

Hope this helps

hi,

After two days of trying to install 7 pro 64. I worked out that by removing 2gb of ram I was able to install 7 without any problems. Before it would take hours and then eventually give up. If i try to add the other 2gb stick of ram it hangs at the windows logo.

Ive tried 7 32 bit and that worked fine with 4gb. Also vista 64 bit and that was fine also.

Any suggestions?

2.4ghz dual core, corsair ram, asus pn532 something, 1tb sata

Just to let you guys know, I'm new so forgive any mistakes.

The title says it all.

I get a replacement GPU (GT240) because my first GPU stopped working. The first time I install the card, nothing comes up on the monitor so I plug my D-Sub cable back into my integrated graphics. I download the new drivers. I restart my computer and what do you know my gpu works. All this was done at night by the way. The next day when I wake up, I turn on my computer. Nothing appears on my screen. I still have D-Sub plugged into my gpu. On the monitor it says "no signal".

I should enough power. I have a 450w Corsair PSU.
My first GPU (actually second) was a GIGABYTE GT 240 1GB DDR3
The replacement is an ASUS (they didn't have another GIGABYTE card) GT 240 1GB DDR3
 

A:New Graphics, Works Once, Doesn't Work Again!

Uninstall all existing drivers and display devices in device manager and add or remove programs. Download driver sweeper and run in windows normal and safe mode. Reinsert new graphics card and go to nvidia's website to download newest drivers.

Good luck!

I'm running Windows XP, Service Pack 3, 2002 version, Internet Explorer 8. Whenever I try and run Internet Explorer, it says that it can't display the page, for whatever reason, suggesting I diagnose connection problems. I've uninstalled all the toolbars I can find, but that doesn't help a bit. Yet I can properly browse the internet perfectly fine with Firefox 3.5.

It's worth noting two things: I recently had a virus infect the computer, posing as antispyware, which I had to wrestle with for an entire morning before Spybot S&D got rid of it. The second is that the MSHTML.DLL (when i use the command regsvr32 mshtml.dll in the Run window) "loads, but the DLLRegisterServer entry point was not found. This file can not be registered."

Is there anything I can do about this? Any more information you might need?

A:IE8 won't work, but Firefox works fine

I actually fixed the problem myself:

I went to 'Internet Options' -> 'Connections' -> 'LAN Settings' -> and unchecked the proxy server option. Worked like a charm. (however, I think this is only for some types of internet connections. As in, it might not work for everyone, but probly will)

That Fireball error is coming from the diagnostics built into your hard drive (A Quantum Fireball) - it isn't kidding around.

Get the diagnostic "Data Protection System" from Quantum's site:
http://www.quantum.com/support/csr/software/csr_software.htm

Based on your warning message, it will probably give you an error code and tell you to contact Quantum for a replacement drive.

It is quite possible that the problem with your drive is causing trouble on the IDE channel, so your CDROMs are not accessing correctly.

hello all!

I have a question for you.
I have a compaq computer with a celron running Win 98
Problem is that neither the cd rom drive or the cd burner will work anymore?
They both quit at the same time.
You put the cd in you can hear it start then nothing. Same for both drives.
The rest of the computer seems to work ok.
Internet, Word etc
Could this be a problem with the secondary IDE?
How could I test this to find out what it may be.

Thanks

A:No Cd rom Drives work?

Watch the first and second sreens during boot. Are they listed there?

Have you checked the bios to make sure they are set to auto to detect the drives?

If they do not show on boot and the bios is ok, check in device manager to see if they show a problem there, such as a yellow ! or ?.

Do they show in My Computer? If so right click on drive, choose properties, Does it show it working there?

Any suggestions appreciated.
 

A:How do I get my USB drives to work again??

Ohh things blown' up. That must have been exciting! Chances are that your USB ports will never work again without a new motherboard for your laptop. Now, I'm assuming that you have already restarted your laptop a couple of times and the USB ports still don't work!

Did you mean USB drives or USB ports? I assumed ports. USB drives are usually metal or plastic boxes containing hard drives connected to your computer through your USB ports.

My computer dosen't recognise either of my cd-dvd rw drives anymore, they were working yesterday...

windows explorer dosen't register them either...

I've tried system restore and now I'm getting 'found new hardware', and the drivers can't be found, even online.

Virus maybe, McAfee didn't find anything....

Help!!!
 

A:Help, both my cd-dvd rw drives don't work

A couple of things you can try.

1 Try a different ide cable. They have been known to go bad.

2 Uninstall all your optical drives from device manager(if they are there) and reboot your computer. Windows will automatically reinstall the drivers.

My five .... They Work? PC new 8 Win Should Drives Win in 7 year old HP Pavilion crashed Win 7 Drives in new Win 8 PC .... Should They Work? with virtually no signs of life although the GB drives are only months old and are spinning when startup is attempted No messages of any kind on the display I checked the display and it is good Bought a new HP but it has Windows All my backup data is via Norton Ghost Windows and is intact on a TB external Passport drive I need to figure out how to retrieve this data A suggestion was made to just install the old Win hard drive in place of the Win hard drive in the new computer New computer can't accommodate both old Win hard drives so I stuck the C in it per normal containing the startup and OS files The computer would not boot from this drive and delivered an error message to the effect quot No bootable disk or drive has failed quot So the question is would there be anything in Win 7 Drives in new Win 8 PC .... Should They Work? the BIOS of the new PC which would make it expect to see Win Any ideas on why it wouldn't boot from this drive I realize the drive could be bad but given the age of the drive it seems unlikely

A:Win 7 Drives in new Win 8 PC .... Should They Work?

Bios does not care which OS is on the HDD as long it has a boot sector and BIOS points to it as the first boot device. If I understand right, you had those 2, 320 GB drives in the old Pavilion. One of them had Win7 installed on it. As your new Pavilion has space for only one drive you replaced that one with with one of those 320s and it would not recognize or boot from it ? Did you try another one ? When you have 2 HDDs sometimes windows install themselves on one drive with the boot sector on another one.
Now you say that you backed up on the Passport using Norton ghost, You probably backed up whole disk or partition. Can't you install Ghost on the Win8 and use it to retrieve contents from Passport ? As long as you do not restore operating system to C: drive and ruin Win8 installation, you should be able to retrieve just the data you want from it.
Alternatively, you could get an SATA to USB adapter to connect those 2 320GB drives and use them for storage and backup and maybe even to boot from one of them by pointing BIOS to USB as first boot device. Something like this :

I have a Mashita 842s DVD-RAM superdrive in my Toshiba M400 notebook. I am running XP w/SP3. I don't recall whether or not in the past I've tried to play movie dvds on it using such as WinDVD and Windows Media Player 11. However, recently I've had the need to do so. Unfortunately, although data DVDs (both those I've burned myself and software discs) and audio cds can be read without a problem, movie dvds are not recognized as even being in the drive. The lack of recognition includes Windows Explorer, WinDVD and Windows Media Player. Because the other type of discs work fine, I'm assuming this a software or configuration problem. I've used both Windows and a third party utility and both say the driver(s) are the most recent. I would appreciate any and all assistance in diagnosing and correcting this problem. Thanks.

Downloaded W7 now Microsoft Works Doesn't Work

MESSAGE RECEIVED: Microsoft works cannot access one or more files it needs to run. The files may have been renamed, deleted, or moved.

If anyone can help i'd appreciate. Thanks

A:Downloaded W7 now Microsoft Works Doesn't Work

I doubt it has anything to do with the download. Just reinstall Works over itself, in any case the installer does (I think, but depends on which build you have...) give you the options of repair, install, or uninstall.

I have IIS 7.5 running in Win7 Pro.

When I install a certificate I first create a certificate request. The certificate does install fine. After a while the certificate doesn't work any more. I try to install the certificate again and it says it doesn't match the certificate request. What is deleting the certificate request and the friendly name of the certificate so the certificate doesn't work?

Could it be CCleaner that is deleting the info?
In what file/registry is that information stored. Maybe it's a bat file I created to delete temp files?
If I knew where it was stored I could possibly figure it out.

Thanks,

Docfxit

Hi there

I have done 2 very simple macros, Macro1 and Macro2 (See attachment). Macro1 does not work but Macro2 does. Only one line of code is different between the 2 macros. I want Macro1 to work like Macro2 but I cannot figure out how to do it. This has me stumped.

Ok so I bought a Logitech Webcam C170 a few days ago and it just won't work. When I plug it in it just plays the "device failure" sound and doesn't light up the LED on the camera like it's supposed to do. On other computers it works. I have installed the drivers and software for the webcam.

Here are some screenshots of what happens (In Greek, I am so sorry):

A:Logitech Webcam C170 won't work on my PC but works on others

Make sure you have the latest driver version (2.51.828.0 dated Oct 8, 2012) and the correct bit-ness for your computer, Chris. (Your specs show you have Windows 7 64-bit installed.)

Support + Downloads: Webcam C170 - Logitech

If problems continue, open Device Manager and make sure the webcam is being recognized (probably listed under Imaging Devices.)

I'm having an issue with this specific XP Sp3 computer. In the persons cubicle the computer will not connect to the internet. If you move the computer to a different lan drop, it works just fine. Then if you switch to another computer, that works in the cubicle. I've checked the Nic, Cat-5, basic IP settings that we are using. Everything is fine.
Any ideas? Need More Info? let me know.
Thanks,
Jeremy

I have a USB keyboard which normally works fine but is not working when I enter the BIOS. (Which I am trying to do BTW so that I can boot from the the Win10 ISO install disk. I'm on Win7 now and I've tried the easier way many times but it always fails.)

The keyboard is plugged directly into the PC (i.e. is not going through a hub).

If it might matter the motherboard is a Gigabyte MA78G-DS3H which supports AMD Phenom and Athlon processors.

I used to use a non-USB keyboard on this machine but that port stopped working so I don't think I have the option of trying a non-USB keyboard.

I wouldn't mind replacing this system but I am too busy to do that while the upgrades to Win10 are still free.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Bob

A:USB Keyboard Does Not Work in BIOS (But Otherwise Works Fine.)

not all bios's allow the use of a mouse, newer UEFI Bios's do but on older machines it's not an option , but for your keyboard you could look for a Legacy Option in the bios under USB which should allow USB to work outside Win7 too.

you could check the PS2 ports are still enabled too while in the bios

Ok so here is the rundown. I brought my computer to college and I plugged up a new mouse and keyboard so that I could use my computer. Basically, the keyboard works fine all the time but the mouse ONLY works in BIOS. It does not work in safe mode, or when Windows 7 is loaded. The mouse worked for about 5 seconds when i first plugged it in but after that it no longer works whatever I do. I have tried a system restore, disabling and enabled the drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling the mouse and keyboard. Both are wired and through USB 2.0

Here are my computer stats:
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
CPU: Intel Core i7-4810MQ @ 2.8 ghz
RAM: 16.0 gb:

Mouse: Onn (model ONA11HO091)
Keyboard: Onn (model ONA11H0089)

If you need any more info please let me know. Ive been surfing forums for hours with no luck.

A:Mouse works in BIOS,does not work in Windows 7

Welcome

Search thru the Bios settings for enable USB Mouse. Sometimes win7 needs that.

Then plug the mouse in after win7 fully loads to see if it recognizes it & says it is ready to use.

I ll go through what happened step by step I was last on my computer at around pm today I woke up early today so I decided to take a nap work chkdsk in f/ mode, Safe Only works won't It goes into standby by itself and I Only works in Safe mode, chkdsk f/ won't work keep napping Throughout my nap which was very resting I heard my computer it is a laptop making a loud sound with the fans I thought it was doing an AVG scan and that s why it was like that Anyway around hours later I go on the computer I move the mouse I see the main computer screen The problems are that there are quot black quot mini icons in my system tray and I could not enter the start menu My screen was also flashing black every seconds or so I turn off the computer Only works in Safe mode, chkdsk f/ won't work turn it back on and notice that at Windows startup there are blue quot streaks quot whereas normally I d see the Windows logo and have a black background After seeing this I try to do system restore I get a dark blue screen saying that there seems to be a problem and I should do chkdsk f when I turn my computer on I can t get my computer on in regular mode it will just have the blue streaks then it turns to black screen I can turn it on in safe mode however and I get some weird green quot matrixy quot looking kind of background but seems to work alright on Safe mode I press run I type in chkdsk f it opens Only works in Safe mode, chkdsk f/ won't work up but it says it cannot run and has a NTFS error or something It offers to run at next startup so I press Y but it never happens regular startup still has black screen while safe mode startup doesnt have chkdsk f run I tried system restore which doesnt seem to do much I also have SP on the computer Any more information needed just ask Thank you for your time

A:Only works in Safe mode, chkdsk f/ won't work

Sounds like a failing graphics card to me..."streaks", "matrixy" things, "lines", and blank screens all point to a dying graphics card. You will likely have to replace it.
