Using Memorex CD-RW Disks

Q: Using Memorex CD-RW Disks

Hi everybody :

I formatted a Memorex CD-RW disk. And then proceeded to transfer data files to this disk. The first thing I noticed was that I couldn't "drag-and-drop" files. (I'm backing up my Sketchup projects). When I right-clicked on Drive E, the PASTE option wasn't listed. Before, when I did this same procedure, this option WAS available. I checked the Properties for this disk. Yes....it showed there was a disk in this drive. And that it was a rewritable. I COULD, however, open the file with Sketchup and re-save it...this time to the disk. I checked the disk to see if these files were actually on the disk.....yes they were. I'm not sure what to ckeck to "enable" the drag-and-drop function. I'm using Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. With 3Gb RAM. I'm not sure what other information to include in this message. Thanks

Preferred Solution: Using Memorex CD-RW Disks

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.)

A: Using Memorex CD-RW Disks

If you are going to be sending files to a backup source, you should use a USB Flash drive, which can be easily formatted, and reused, as well as files drag and dropped there.
RW discs are troublesome. The ability to Format and reuse is limited, and problems will arise. I also found Memorex discs to be lower quality and not compatible with many burners.
If you must use a CD/RW disc, try right clicking the file and choose Send To... CD/RW drive.

my aunty has a Memorex CD-RW Drive Model Twelve MAXX 1032

just wondered if i need to download any software to install the drive and if they are easy enough to install

A:memorex cr-rw

There are no drivers required foe the drive. However you do need to install CD burning software in order to be able to burn CD's. The drive may have came with burning software, if not you will have to get some. The most common are Nero Burning ROM and Roxio Easy CD Creator.

Have you tried it in another couple of players to see if it plays as some are a bit finicky about CD-R and some players will not play any.

Have you tried a different make of CDs.

I've got a Memorex DVD+RAM530L Drive
I can play videos on it, and AVS DVD Player opens up.......no problem here. But, I'm having an impossible time "writing" to the drive.
I tried using a blank DVD+RW disk, [I FIRST FORMATTED THE DISK] (and the first time) copied and pasted a couple of downloaded programs onto it. (First time) I notied they were burned to the disk. (Second time....nothing)
I tried opening the disk to see the "burned" files. My System rebooted.
On My Computer it lists my DVD Drive as "CD Drive" with a DVD icon (?).
The following information might be a "negative"

Windows XP/SP 3
Intel 1.7 Ghz Processor (a litle slow, maybe?)
1024 RAM

And here......I noticed that something might be eating up my memory.
(about) 700 available physical memory.

Other than a new computer, and/or a rebuild (with faster equipment), is there a way around this problem ?
I've also got an HP External CD Drive. No problem whatsoever
Reading or Writing to this drive.

Here's my problem, my burner has stopped burning Video dvd's. It will read them just fine, but won't write to a blank disc. I've tried uninstalling the drive, updating the firmware, and using different apps to burn a video dvd but having no luck. It just crapped out on me...I went to my other computer, tried to do the exact same write process and that burner gives me an error message at the initial write stage...

Are my drives shot? Has it come to that dreaded time to replace them?

I have a DVD-RW drive that I use for CD-RW disks. It works very well. Unfortunately, I inserted a particular CD-RW that was nearly full, and tried to add more images to it. The images were added to the Wizard (I have Windows XP Service Pack 3), and then I proceeded to finalize the download from there to the disk. That's when I got the overload message. I got a message that the CD-RW disc didn't have enough space, and then accidently hit the Eject button before the unsuccessful attempted download was fully processed. Like, I accidently was asking the desktop to perform a function, even as I was making it impossible for it to do so.

Then, I received another message saying that combining those two actions could render the disc unusable. I tried to retrace my steps more properly, and then got a third message saying there was something wrong with that disc, and I needed to use another one.

Since then I have tried to use that same disc. The drive doesn't even recognize that the disck has been loaded. And when I hit the Explore button for the disk itself, I get a visual chart saying the disk has 700 megabytes free, like it was never, ever used. The DVD-RW drive still works fine for all other disks I have.

I'd like to somehow save the information that was on the disk. Any way I can do that at this point? I have another drive, but it doesn't seem to read CD-RW disks at all. That second drive keeps telling me to insert a disk, even after I've done it.... Read more

Hi, I am backing up data files onto CD-R's using 2 year old TDK VELO CD 12/10/32 and Roxio Easy CD Creator Basic. Everything worked fine until I used up my last TDK 24x CD-Rs. Now I am trying to use Memorex 48x CD-R''S and I cannot get them to work, they slow down to burning at 1x and then I get "cannot read" error messages.
I opened several different boxes of the Memorex CD's in case first was defective, no difference. I downloaded latest version of Roxio Creator Basic program, again no difference. If it would solve the problem, I can reinstall Nero 5.5 (I have both) but is that really the problem?
Thanks in Advance

My travel drive works fine with my Acer laptop running XP. It used to work fine with my Sony Vaio running XP Pro. I tried using it today with the Sony but couldn't write to it. I kept getting an error message stating it was write protected. I brought it home and tested it with my Acer. All's good. It just won't work with my Sony. I did some google searches but basically come up empty.

Any thoughts??


A:Memorex 4GB Traveldrive

I've also determined that my Sony laptop won't write to ANY external drive. It simply says they're write protected. This all happened after I'd installed Microsoft Steady State. When I uninstalled it is when i began having this problem. I've gone back and reinstalled and uninstalled Steady State again hoping to remedy the problem, no luck.

Any ideas why Windows would report all external drives are write protected?

I have always used regular old silver Memorex CD-R 16x speed cd's for copying music cd's. This time I bought the "cool" colored cd-r 16x ones and they don't work, I mean I can't record on them.
Has anyone else had the same problem? Should I be using 16x speed (my burner is a 8x). ? Should I use the ones with 40x? I wonder why the regular silver 16x cd-r works and the colored ones don't?
Thanks, Hotskates

A:Memorex CD-R blank cd's

There is allot more to CD-R and CD-RW technology then meets the eye. The colors differences you are experiencing relates to the dye used in the construction of the CD and many time relates to the burn process and speed at which the CD will accept burning. Here is a website that explains in as basic terms possible but still try to explain the complexity of it.
Bottom line here is you should stick with the brand and type of CD you have success with or experiment to see if other types are also compatable but expect some rejection during the process.

The CD/DVD drive on my Sony VAIO went out, and since I'm not able to lose the use of the computer for several days to send it away for service, I bought an external drive. (Samsung Super-writemaster, the cheapest external drive available off the shelf.) It's got lightscribe capability, so while I was at the store, I picked up a 30 pack of Memorex lightscribe discs.

The problem is that I can't get the discs to register as lightscribe discs. Things I've checked:

1. Downloaded new drivers from the lightscribe site.
2. Made sure discs are correctly upside-down in drive.
3. Tried both Nero 7 (came with drive) and downloaded Lightscribe's template printer.
4. Tried multiple discs, in case one was faulty.

Is there something that I'm just missing? I've gotten bum CDs in a pack before, but is the failure rate on Memorex lightscribe discs just atrocious (in which case I need to return 'em and buy a different brand)? Is there some fancy driver I should have?

A:Trouble with Memorex Lightscribe CDs.

It's probably the disc, Memorex branded discs are just not very good. The Memorex brand exists in name only, they no longer manufacture. Unfortunately, they don't use the best manufacturers in the business.

Alright, the mother-in-law got me a 512 Geek squad memory stick with that new U3 lancher on it. It pissed me off so bad I returned it and got a Memorex 1Gb stick. Guess what, comes with U3 "smart" technology on it as well. It is supposed to make autoplay and running apps from the USB stick easier. For some reason on my Dell labtop and my HP desktop the thing keeps ejecting and re-connecting. Every time it does this a U3 window pops up on the screen while this launcher software loads. As I am typing this it has happened twice. Not to mention it takes up about 12 meg, no biggy with 1Gb of space, but it is more of a principle thing to me. The launch drive (j: in my case) is read only and I cannot delete the U3 software off it, says something about being a cd-drive? The k: that the bulk of the stick gets assigned to has some U3 files you can delete, but does not get the j: stuff off. My basic question, how can I get rid of the automatic U3 crap?!?!? I just want a friggin memeory stick that I can put stuff on!!!!! PNY is the only brand I found at BestBuy that did not have the U3 stuff on it at this time, but I don't want to shell out $40 more to not have software I don't want!!!! Someone somewhere knows how to get rid of it....

Hello all,
I recently have recvied a package of spindle Memorex Black CD-Rs. Are these any good or should I just dump them and keep using my gold and sliver CD's? To me it does not look like it should work. It does not look that reflective to me.

A friend gave these to me (new package) so it is not any big deal if they don't work. I just thought I would ask and see what the general consensious was here. Even if they do work, how long do you think they will last? If they are going to give way to bit rot in a few years might as well not bother then.

Any info is apprecated. Thanks in advance.

Help, the player will play dvd's but i can't get it to recognize blank dvd's. Tried many different blanks. Windows recognizes the drive, but my computer shows the disk to be full. Any other settings I'm missing in windows. Using Nero, but, that doesn't seem to be the problem.

A:new memorex dual layer

I have probably the same or similar drive so decided to poke around. If you're looking in My Computer and the icon shows a disc is there you're probably OK. Holding your arrow over the Icon and seeing Free Space and Total Size as 0 bytes is normal because its blank and should still work fine. If by recognize you mean you want Windows to Tell you when you've put a disc in (and give you options as to what to do with it), try right clicking the drive icon(in My Computer),click properties, and click the auto play tab to set that up as you'd like. Interestingly auto play only had the option of blank CD as opposed to blank DVD (but still sees the disc), but don't think that's an issue as Nero asks you to pick one or the other anyway.

I see you posted on cdfreaks

I think you would be able to cross flash it to a Lite-on, it might be your only option as Memorex is slow to update firmware and the only firmware is from June 07.

Only problems are risk of a bad flash and of course your warranty is voided.

Is it possible to send the drive back and get something different if you don't want to go with the cross flashing route?

Anyhow, have you tried tried right clicking on it in device manager and deleting it and rebooting?

Hello all,
I tried to post this under the Hardware section on the "other" forum but haven't gotten any luck, so I'll try here.

The problem I'm having is, recently I was having keyboard and mouse issues. After spending a lot of time not getting anywhere I was able to format and reinstall and that took care of that.

Now, when I try to plug my external Memorex 52MAXX 2452AJ USB Device into my USB port, it tells me a high speed USB device is plugged into a non high speed port. So, when I try to burn it either fails half way or doesn't get past the initial lead write-in. Example, out of 10 cd's I've tried to burn...I've only gotten 1 complete audio cd and 1 data cd.

This didn't happen before the reinstall (of course it didn't) and I'm not 100% if/where a cd for the burner would be or if I had one. I went to the Memorex website and they didn't have a driver for my burner.

I'm on WinXP pro, 1.3 ghz and have more info if needed not sure what anyone would need.

Sorry for the post being so long, but if I have to listen to In Flames at work again for another 8 hours....I think I'm going to lose it. Please help, offer any suggestions, and much obliged.

After installing my new motherboard and CPU, I repaired windows so that it used the SATA drivered for the new motherboard via this drive without any problems. Then, from the start, windows had problems with the drive mentioned. First, it wasn't displayed in My Computer. I followed a Reg tweak to have windows reinstall the drivers. Then it appeared, like usual. Now, I put in a CD-ROM. the drive detected it, but it was shown to be blank (it had 0/0kb used, and Windows seemed to treat it as a recordable CD). Some disks have the same issues, but instead it thinks they are DVDs, when they are, in relaity, CDs.

I discovered, then, that is isn't even spinning the disc. I set one in the drivem facing a specific direction, and accessed it via explorer. I ejected it-- yet it didn't spin at all. Rarely, If I check for newer drivers via the device manager, it sometimes begins to spin-- and I can access it normally.

I have a 430w PSU, so I don't think it's a lack of power, and it worked fine iinstalling windows. Please help!

Hey, guys. I've been having a tough time getting Win XP (home) to recognize my flash drive. Almost every time I put it in, windows says it can't be recognized. The manual says that XP doesn't need drivers to run it, just 98SE. I saw the folder with the files -once-, so I'm sure this is just a temporary problems. Any ideas? All or any help will be appreciated.

A:Memorex Traveldrive (2GB) + Windows XP = Dead...

First off, if it's not recognized by any system, this won't fix it. If other systems recognize the drive, try this:

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG
-------------------------- cut after this line --------------------------------

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]

-------------------------- cut before this line --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

A:can't get memorex simple save to work!

The SimpleSave disks are an over-priced gimmick. Memorex has obviously not updated the software to work with Windows 7. Store your pictures in the My Pictures folder, and just use regular DVDs to back them up. Windows 7 supports DVD burning natively, so you don't even need to install any software. Just drag and drop from the hard drive to a blank disk.

Your best bet would be to install XP mode on your system and then install the scanner there.

I do not believe there are any 64 bit drivers for that scanner.

Hi Guys,

I have an eMachines E525 with a Matshita DVD-Ram UJ880AS disk drive.
It doesn't seem to let me burn onto Memorex DVD-R x16 that i bought.

Any ideas?

I've tried CDBurnerXP and Nero 12 but no luck.

Thanks in advance!

I just installed Windows 7 and it is not recognizing my flash drive. I suspect part of the problem is the U3 Launchpad. When I located a drive in Explorer, I tried to access it but it said u3dapi10.dll is missing and to re-install it. I believe that came from the U3 software on the flash drive, but it apparently isn't working correctly.

I'm not very familiar with these kinds of problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Memorex Flash Drive NOT recognized.

Can you access the drive from another computer? If you can, do so and format it to NTFS. Then try again via the Win7 computer. Most if not all flash drives should connect to windows automatically. They kind of have to. They'd be completely useless if you had to install drivers for each one.

I just saw an ad for Memorex brand, SCSI, 8x4x32x CR-RW drives with an Adaptec PCI SCSI adapter included.

Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about this setup or brand?

Hi I have an external DVD player and it is not working with my computer (make and model in title). I have a Satellite computer with Windows 8.1 on it (Windows 10 did not work well and messed up some of my apps). Are these two devices compatible or not? The
DVD player does not want to work and I would like to know if it is a program thing or something else. Please help. Thanks.

Hello everyone,
I have a bit of a problem here, my computer won't read blank DVD-R's. I don't know if its just Memorex or my computer. I went to my device manager and my CD-DVD player is Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-85JS ATA Device, maybe this is not capable of burning dvd's, even though the guy that sold us it at radioshack said it had a dvd burner. If someone could help me it would be very greatly appreciated, E-Mail me at [email protected] or post here if you would like.
Thanks In Advance.
