How to finalize a disc (CD - R and DVD +/-R) using Windows?

Hello:

How to "finalize" a disc (CD - R and DVD +/-R) using Windows?

I want to finalize the disc... not simply close the session/disc.

What I read in the help Windows, "closing" allows me to write on the disc later.

Is this true, if the disc is just R, RW not?

I burned the JPEG images (.jpg files) on CD - R and DVD + R discs.

When I try to read them in my Sony CD/DVD player, it does not recognize the discs.

The Sony user manual said that records must be "finalized", not just "closed".

What do you mean with Windows?

I have treid finalize these discs with Roxio Creator Basic, but it does nothing, except eject discs.

Windows has always said that disks have free space, and the DVD player is unable to recognize them.

As I understand it, if the disc is finalized, will show him no available free space.  Is this correct?

Note: The discs work fine on my HP laptop which uses Vista 32 bit Home Premium.  I can see JPEG images.

Thank you...

  • How can I find several duplicate files and remove the using Windows Explorer

    Somehow I see several duplicate on my computer files.  I can tell when they arrived as all the duplicate files ' _10-Mar-15_1. ' " However, I don't know how they arrived.  I think that Google Drive was the culprit, but I can't be sure.

    How we (me) use Windows Explorer to find all files with "_10-Mar-15_1." and delete them all?

    I am using Windows 7 64 bit

    Thank you!!!

    Windows Explorer can do no such thing. To remove recursively a certain file is easy - see below. To identify duplicates and remove some of them is much more difficult, because:

    • Are two files duplicates because
      -They have the same name?
      -They are the same size?
      -They have the same file date?
      -They have the same content?
      -Everything above?
    • When they are, which ones should be deleted?
      -The oldest?
      -The most recent?
      -The batch?

    Here's how to remove a certain file to recursively. Assume that they are in the folder "C:\Users\BHunter\Documents".

    1. Click the start planet.
    2. Type cmd. exe and press ENTER.
    3. Enter the following command and press ENTER:
      dir/s/b/p 'C:\Users\BHunter\Documents\_10-Mar-15_1 '.
      This will show you all the files whose name above.
    4. del /s /q "C:\Users\BHunter\Documents\_10-Mar-15_1."
      This will permanently delete all files with the name above. You cannot restore them.

    Hello

    The image of user account can be removed by disabling the Welcome screen. Or, by opting for the classic Windows theme. Follow the method described in this article, if you want to remove the user name and the picture in the Start Menu, without disabling the Welcome screen and Windows XP theme.

    For those who want to delete the user name and the image of user account from the Start Menu, in order to have a blue white Panel at the top, try this:

    Registry warning
    Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click on the number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows
    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/322756/

    Step 1:

    a. start Windows Explorer and go to this folder:
     
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft account images

    b. in this folder, rename the BMP file that corresponds to your user account.
     
    (For example, if your user name is Robert, rename Robert.bmp to old_Robert.bmp)

    c. then rename the following folder:

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft account Pictures\Default pictures
     
    to something else, for example,.
     
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft account Pictures\No_Default images.

    Step 2:
     
    To remove the user name, follow these steps

    a. Click Start, click "RUN" and type "regedit.exe" and navigate to this key:
     
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER-Software-Windows Microsoft\------CurrentVersion-policies-Explorer

    b. in the right pane, the value NoUserNameInStartMenu-value data 1.

    c. close Regedit.exe and restart Windows.

    You'll find yourself with a blue area at the top of the Start Menu.

    Regarding the pressing 'F1' to start Windows, you have made no changes or was there a system crash after which the problem started?

    You may need to change the boot sequence in the BIOS to the default settings. I recommend you contact your PC vendor for this.

    Warning of the BIOS:
    BIOS change / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.
