    hi i am new here first post , i really hope someone can help me with this problem , i just bought this e machine yesterday and had previously backed up my info onto a dvd rewritable disk from my old e machine , the problem i am having is some of my files copied off and pasted just fine from the disk but some didn't , it doesn't make sense some that copies ok was jpeg pictures while others that was jpg pics in other files won't copy the new e machine is a 750 gb hard drive with 4 gb memory and a windows seven system .
    the error i get when a picture won't copy is : can't read from the source file or disk . and try again doesn't do anything and if is skip it goes to the next and does the same thing . i called e machine support and the first tech couldn't help and sent me to a second tech and they said i would have to call e machine and they would charge me so much an hour (i just bought this yesterday so much for company tech help ) . that's why i am now here , i hope someone can help me with this , it has done some of my other files the same way . including some internet site links i have saved , and also a song file that has free kareoke songs (from bosko's kareoke web searches ) that i saved . i can't get them to copy and transfer .
    any help sure would be appreciatted on this problem !!:)

    either the disc is bad or fingerprints etc, or the computer can't read that format. jmo

    thanks , i guess that must have been the problem that it was corrupt on parts of the disk (maybe from scratches? ) but i did find a way around it with the websites that wouldn't transfer i ws able to read the name and then type that name in a google search open the web page save it to favorites then right ckick that website name and save it into a new folder i created in my documents , for isntance "kareoke web sites" . so maybe if someone else has this problem they can alway's do this to get the web sites back again .
    thanks again for your help Tapeuup, it was appreciated !!:)(y)
