    Computer Help

    This is proberly very obvious but i have absolutley no idea when it comes to computers at all......

    When i put a disc into the laptop it always says its a blank disc, I know its not though as ive looked at pics on the disc on another computer

    so how do i fix it so it shows the pictures?

    You need to finalise the disk on the computer that can see the pictures, right click the CD/DVD drive and click finalise or finish writing

    when i do that it comes up with a little circle with a light going around it (i think its the timer thing to say comp is working) then comes up with not responding

    Are you sure the files are not still waiting to be burned to disc on the other pc hence they show up in the cd drive.

    no the disc is off my father in law and it contains my wedding pics that he took, ishould just put it in and view them

    The disc needs to be finalized on the PC that the disc was created on,When you copy files to a disc the disc is left " Open " so you can add more files ,Sometimes this means the disc cannot be read on another computwer until the disc has been " Closed " or Finalized",

    probably not anything wrong with laptop just that some discs play in some drives but not all unil they are finalised,

    How old is the laptop?
