CD-RW discs show blank but show full in properties

Q: CD-RW discs show blank but show full in properties

I mistakenly tried M/S Backup to back up My Documents so I can reformat...

Should have known better as I know it is not good...

Anyway I used CD-RW discs all new... and as the backups didn't record I erased the discs. Although they open up and show completely blank, they show as full in properties...trying to use CD Creator as I normally do tells me that the discs are 10 MB when I know they are 650 MB....

Does anyone know why this is...I'm not bothered about the discs they are cheap enough to throw away and replace, I'll carry on copying and pasting or using CD Creator in the future it's just bugging me as to why this happens...

Preferred Solution: CD-RW discs show blank but show full in properties

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

don't know why it's doing it, but have you tried to reformat to reclaim the space?

I insert any cd or dvd blank media in drive and not able to burn
they all show up as full any suggestions
thanks

A:any blank media show-up full in drive

What program are you trying to burn with? Sometimes installing a 3rd party burner app such as Nero or Roxio can mess with your ability to burn a cd from within Windows' CD burning. Also if you are trying to burn using Windows built in CD burning you can only burn to CD and not DVD.

Strange problem. Using win 7 premium x64
SP1 shows a successful install in the update history. Win update shows 'up to date' when checking.
The only anomaly is when I check the properties page of the 'Computer' from the start menu it does not show under the Windows Edition section of the page.

Any ideas?
Thanks

I finally got my phone to stay connected via bluetooth and of course I no longer have any hair to pull out.
now I am trying to import my contacts to the phone, which I gather can be done with a bluetooth connection via some sort of PIM that the bluetooth software recognizes. For the life of me I can't find any explicit reference to any particular PIM software that the Windows 8 bluetooth Properties dialog recognizes. Or, have I misunderstood the capabilities here? Do I have to buy and install Outlook?
I am unfortunately using Thunderbird as email & contact manager, but I've exported my contacts via .csv in the past so If I can find the appropriately compatible PIM for Win8 Bluetooth I think I can muddle through.

Any help would be ever so appreciated.

If there is a thread or other site that already deals with this, my apologies and could you point me in the right direction.

Mahalo,

A:How do I get a PIM to show up in Bluetooth properties?

When I connected my iPhone to an HP laptop with 7 installed, it connected my phone via Bluetooth and all my contacts were right in there. All of my Audio output was sent to the laptop. It was kind of interesting, I was able to call someone from the Desktop and use the mike and speaker to talk.

I believe it saved all of my contact information too, I had to delete the device from the laptop to remove them. I was kind of alarmed at the massive amount of stuff that is on my phone that showed up.

I;ve connected my iPhone to a Macbook running Bootcamp Windows 7, but it was never as complete as I saw it on the HP. Maybe the support was not included in the bootcamp drivers. But on an OEM Windows 7 system, everything was there.

You have to go into Devices and Printers and pull up the properties of the phone. Of course I don't know what kind of phone you are connecting, but my iPhone was completely accessible (as a phone and Audio Device) in that system. It makes me want to get some kind of Bluetooth card for mu Main PC so I can connect my Phone up while I am working and that way I can hold conversations right from my workstation.

By PIM I take it you mean Personal Information Manager, all of your contacts and numbers and email addresses? The Contacts should all be there in the device Property Sheet, just look around.

Basically what I am saying here, is that an iPhone when connected to a Windows Computer via Bluetooth, creates it's own interface, you don't need any extra software ... Read more

Virtually every file shows read only when I right click on it and choose properties. In uncheck read only, then click apply and choose applies to all subfolders and files. Windows appears to change the properties (a window opens up and a green progress bar fills). But if I click OK and close properties, when I look at properties again, they are shown as read only again.

This happens both when I am logged in under my user name, as well as if I log in as administrator.

What's the deal? Am I doing something wrong. The only difficulty it's created so far was when attempting ti embed a cover art JPG into an MP3 file in my music library.

A:All files show Read Only in Properties- I cannot change

Hello patagriff,

Are you sure that it's read only.

If it's got a dot or blank in the Read-only box, then it's not set to be read only.

Only when it's checked is it read only.

Keep clicking on the Read-only box to see the different options.

Hope tis helps,

I have a Matshita (Panasonic) LF-D310 DVD-R(RAM) drive - it came on my MicroExpress computer two years ago (so early DVD-R). I have finally found a reason to start using it (backup 100's of baby photos/movies) but have realized there is a problem. When you place a blank CD-R disk in it and go to my computer and to the drive/properties you see that the used space is 0% and the free space is 0%. Using many different authoring programs (inc. Nero 6) I am told that the brand new disk is full.

I have tried using TDK and non-branded disks from the local computer store with no luck. In researching this problem I found some people praising the darker purple DVD-R's (in 2002) but I'm not sure if they are still around...if that is the real problem.

I also found reference to installing an update XP2220NE.EXE from panasonic

I have downloaded and installed this(I think, you don't see much after executing it) but this has not corrected the problem.

I don't have any DVD-ram disks and I am not that interested in them due to rarity of these drives on other computers.

Hi,

Thanks to everyone who helped with my previous question!

New question: Is there a way to get jumplists (especially Windows Explorer) to show the full path of each folder, or at least enough to differentiate similarly named folders?

For instance, at work, every project I work on gets a new folder. Within each project folder, I create 3 other subfolders (say Excel, Original Files, Updates). These folders always have the same name exactly and that makes it difficult to identify them in the jumplist (addmitedly if I hover over them I get the full path).

Thanks,
Ariel

A:Show full path in jumplists

Hi Ariel, this method doesn't give you an immediate display of the path, but it does allow you to copy it into a doc:

FROM START MENU
Start Menu, All Programs, highlight program + right-click on it, select Properties, Shortcut, Target (shows actual file path NOT the shortcut path!)

FROM WINDOWS EXPLORER
Open Windows Explorer, highlight the file, and press Shift + right-click mouse.
Select: Copy as path.
Open a Word page and select: Paste.
The path of the file will be pasted in the Word doc.

FROM THE TASKBAR ? (FOR A FILE PINNED TO TASKBAR OR IN JUMP LISTS OR QUICK LAUNCH)
Be sure the program is not running at the time.
Hold the Shift key while right-clicking the pinned shortcut.
This will bring up the full Context Menu.
Select: Copy as path.
Open a Word page and select: Paste.
The path of the file will be pasted into the Word doc.

Below is the registry settings I have set

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]

A:show hidden folders show file extensions thru registry

You're close but in the wrong area.

Code:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"HideFileExt"=dword:00000000
"Hidden"=dword:00000001
show and hide files is a profile specific key and therefore can be modified by user accounts. if you would like to change the default, navigate to key:
HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\current version\explorer\advanced\folder\hidden and \hidefileext
there are keys in there that set default behaviors.

Hover the mouse cursor over it. No other way I know of. May be some 3rd party tool but I haven't looked.

How to show the full path of the shared folders?

For example, I have shared the h folder which is stored on the D drive of the P1 Computer. What I wanted is to show the full path of the shared folder such that it (shared folder) appears as (screenshot is attached):

\\P1\Local Disk (D\h

How might this be accomplished?


Thank you

Best

A:How to show the full path of the shared folders?

Hi Jamal,

You have created a few Threads, are these all work-related questions or for personal use?

To answer your question, you may create a Mapped Network Drive and create a shortcut on your desktop, this way you'll be able to see the path of your shared resource.

I have a prob with my Seagate 1TB external hard drive working on my G4 Powerbook (Leopard OSX). I have a Maxtor 200 gb drive that works perfectly. But The 1TB drive doesn't always appear on the desktop but does show in the system profiler. When it does show up on the desktop my files missing from from folders. Finally on the few times that files show up, I can't open them. I had error messages about permission to open the files but the drive and files all have read/write permission.

I use the drive for backup. The files on this drive are from the Maxtor drive, random disks and my thinkpad which runs Vista.
Any insite would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

A newbie here that just completed a first-time new Win7 PC build. Successful installation of Win7 Pro on WD 600GB 10000 system drive. Went back and installed 4 additional HDD. (2) WD Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM and (2) WD Caviar 7200 500GB HDD from XP system that were used for storage.

BIOS sees all HDDs, but are not viewable in Disk Management.

System Specs:
Antec Nine Hundred
ASUS P6X58D-E MOBO
Intel Core i7-980 3.33ghz
24GB (3 x 4gb) Corsair XMS3 1600mhz RAM
PNY Quadro 4000 2GB VC
Corsair 850TX 850W PSU
1 WD 600GB SATA HDD for OS
2X WD 500gb SATA HDs (previously used on WinXP system for storage)
2X WD 1T SATA HDs
1 Pioneer Blue Ray Burner SATA BDR

BIOS SATA Order:
SATA1=WD 600GB
SATA2=WD 1T
SATA3=WD 1T
SATA4=WD 500GB (previously used as storage on XP system)
SATA5= Pioneer BDR
SATA6= WD 500GB (previously used as storage on XP system)

SATA configuration is enhanced. BIOS is 0701. Marvel 9128 Controller [IDE Mode] PCI/PnP is set to [NO] which was the default setting. The grey SATA1-6G headers are not in use.

Device Manager lists all drives.
However, only three are visible in Disk Management. Missing (1) WD 500GB (previously used on WinXP system) and (1) new WD 1T.

What am I missing here?

Thanks in advance.

It is simple. some web sites put a 1 pixel x 1 pixel gif as a place holder to prevent people from downloading their pictures. That is exactly what happened in the case you sniped. The file is called asp,gif and is 1x1.

Hi - first-time poster looking for help (Googling did not turn up the answer):

I have numerous clients whose info I keep in folders / subfolders with a set naming convention. As a result, my Recent Places list shows many (sub)folders all with the same name, which isn't very helpful. Is there a way I can include the path to the folders in the Recent Place list to differentiate them? It would greatly increase my productivity! (BTW, I've tried using the folder columns available by right-clicking on the column names in Recent Places - both Folder path and Path return only C:\Users\[username]\App_Data\Roaming... (i.e. the location of the shortcut) vs. the actual path to the true folder).

Thanks!

Did you ever discover a solution? It's definitely a problem not knowing where a Recent Places shortcut refers to.

My Dell E510 was working just fine, until the plumbing problem wet the monitor. Black marks, green lines, just got worse and worse. I bought an acer X203H monitor with 1600x900 resolution. Problem is the Dell only gives me a max resolution choice of 1280x768. I've got a lot of black space around the viewable image. I've downloaded a driver for this model from Acer and selected it in the monitor properties via the driver update process. My Dell Dimension E510 has the intel 82945G Express Chipset, and therefore no graphics card. Am I just screwed? or is there a way to get the display properties to give me a choice of 1600x900?
