[QUOTE=carillon;2157870]I’m probably not quite a newbie, just someone who mainly learns by mistakes and has some serious holes in his knowledge of computers, though, because of the mistakes, some of the holes are becoming smaller (I think)
But I am fairly expert at creative writing - write it and teach it locally.
Puzzled why there seems to be so many problems with DVD/CD disk drives (surely a basic part of a computer) which I’ve experienced twice in a week. Both times the machine couldn’t find the driver - therefore the drive, yet it could still tell me I had the latest version of the driver when I tried to reinstall/update it.
With your help I sorted out the laptop (HL-ST-DT…) - found what seemed to be a Visual Basic “fix” on a recommended site. However, my brand new Optiarc AD-7200S DVD/CD drive, as soon as it had loaded all the programmes I need, seemed to decide to hide from the computer and as yet haven’t found the answer. Looks like it’ll go back to the shop.
Hi Carillon, welcome to cdfreaks sorry about your disk problems good luck getting it resolved at a fair price.
[QUOTE=HmNtr;2159096]Hey all, I’m new here but I figured this was as good a thread to introduce myself in as any…I am a great legal researcher, I love Ancient Egypt (et. al.), MCP (x3), MCSE, A+, Network+, two A.S. degrees (working on a third), father of four, love watching ELMO and all sorts of other kid movies and shows with my children, a great cook and pastry baker (if I do say so myself), the family historian and genealogist, and am an all around n00b when it comes to DVD authoring/duplication.
Yep, that sums me up… ;)[/QUOTE]
Hi HmNtr, welcome to cdfreaks, if your feeling chatty here’s the introduce yourself thread ;):
[QUOTE=Zell13;2163850]Hello, my name is Donald and I’m new here(obviously. Lol.) and I’m taking classes for computer engineering next fall. I thought it might be a good idea to gain more insight on my major if I joined cdfreaks. I know a good bit about modding games(certain ones…ex. GTA: San Andreas) and things of that nature, so if neone would like to ask me sumthin about that or relating to that, feel free to ask me. I also know a good bit about tech repair as well(depending on what the problem is). I would like to know more about converting files.(i.e. CCD files to iso…by the way, if I wanted to ask a question bout that, I’d come here to this forum, right???) I’m also good at writing poetry and just writing in general…my second hobby) Neway, it’s nice to meet all of you. Hope some of you can answer my questions! Thanks! [/QUOTE]
Hello Donald welcome to cdfreaks, hopefully I can answer some questions! Usually takes me researching to find something and that can take 3 hrs personally. But in the end I always gain some experience so the effort to find a solution always proves positive
