Angry I want to stab, shoot and f**k my computer up the ass!

Either my Cd burner is f**ked up, or the CDs I'm using are f**ked.
everytime I try to burn a music CD, there's hissing noises in the background when played, or the CD just plain doesnt work.

I've waisted 34 CDs trying to burn one single CD.
all of them are now in the trash can.

also, I had over 50 albums on my computer.
they were taking up too much space on my computer so I burned them all neatly on CDs,
then I deleted them all from my comp.
now my computer doesnt even respond to those CDs, meaning I just lost 50 CDs.

I'm so f**king frustrated I can feel myself getting leukemia.

Did you try playing the CDs somewhere other than your computer, like a CD player?

What brand of CD burner or CDs are you using?

I tend to buy CDs.


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

I buy CDs, too. But then I encode them to MP3. I don't know why people burn CDs and then delete the stuff. What could be more handy than accessing the files on a HD?

That said, I ran out of space again. Guess I need to swap the small one (80 gig) for something BIG. Re-installing the OS, programs...

I've had a few CD burners that pulled that kind of stuff on me. How old is yours? Mine were ususally a couple years old when the started to go bad.

thing is, I need CDs.
an Mp3 player is nice and all, but I dont really have any use for one.
I'm in charge of the music where I work, so I burn CDs with all kinda songs I want on them, and they get played all through the store.

I've had it for some years now, yeah.

but I still dont see why it should get destroyed just like that for no reason.

Being physical pieces of machinery, computers do tend to "just die". Wait until your first hard-drive does the clunk of death, if it hasn't already.

I've had that problem before, make sure that your burning software is converting them to cd format, and not burning them as mp3's.



And don't get me started on computer troubles....

I wish my primary hard drive was 80 gig. My brand spanking new laptop came with 40 gigs on it. Seriously, what am I meant to do with that? Run XP.

I had to buy and extra 160 gig and that only runs via USB (and an external power source, I'm not made of electricity... or money for that matter).

Niko, what program do you use to burn your CD's, and for that matter, what make is your CD burner (for the simple act of burning CD's, I'd suggest WMP, as Microsofted as it is, it works and automatically converts MP3's into CD audio files).

I say go for broke--

download a file sharing client, preferably BearShare, download Adaware and Spybot, and go download crazy until you get up to exactly the point you were before, then delete the file sharing client, all the while continuing to check your computer with Adaware and Spybot (and if you've got Norton Anti-Virus, it's pretty spiffy)...then you'll be back where you started, and can experiment with the whole burning thing.

Normally I would say never download music files for free because, honestly, it fcks your computer hardcore, but if you're gentle....


I can't seem to think up a good signature.

So, on computer troubles. Here's mine.


About 2 weeks ago, my power supply died on me. This of course led to mass turning on and off. After I bought a new one, my video card starts f***ing up after I installed the newest drivers. I reformat, thinking it was just the new drivers. I got it all done, but didn't have time to test it, my friend was having the biggest LAN party at any of our houses ever and I wanted to get there quickly. You can guess what happened. Nothing worked, and it was the worst LAN party ever because of it (well, at least for me. Everybody else thought it was amazing.) I finally get the chance to test my card out, and I come to the conclusion that it's dead. I then figured out it must've died from the pwoer surges of my power supply (sort of like how if you keept turning on and off a light bulb)

So right now I have an original Riva TNT in mine. I have to throw down a couple hundred bucks for a new one. I am looking forward to the upgrade though. It'll be nice having a nice card in there.

Or you could go for a file sharing program that is more computer friendly and not an ad whore.

Oh, no wait, that was just a dream.

I don't really download music that much and therefore have refrained from ever putting that kind of stuff on my own computer (my parents computer got screwed up because of it, I wasn't gonna see that happen to mine), thus keeping my computer relatively safe (hey, it's not perfect).

I'd suggest borrowing loads of CD's offf of friends and family and rip like crazy.

It's quite common that a power supply takes other components with it into the grave. Mine killed parts of the HD. Thank god I could rescue most of the data.

Today, I ordered my new video card (geforce 6600 GT, I am on a tight budget of around $200, and those cards are supposedly amazing for the price). So my dad then called ASUS to see if my old card was still on warranty. It was. ORDER CANCELLED. So now I'm stuck with my old ****ty one that they're going to repair (which I know is going to be at least a week or two) instead of getting the nice new one that I was hoping to get.

I was planning on getting a new one with my warranty, and giving that to my dad and buying the new one for me. But looks like I'm going to still be playing with ****ty fps for a while.

No, he pays for it with his credit cardd, then I pay him back in cash.



And Skinkie, that's how things SHOULD be done. But they aren't. I have a job that I work my ass off in, and I never spend any of my money. I always have at least 100 bucks in my drawer (and more in my bank account), in case something like this happens.

Cheap.

There are real shops? I thought that was just a mystic tale, told by old farts like McCoy who are a little behind the time.

And cash is supposed to exist as well??? Ho, ho, ho, now I know that you're joking.

Um cause in America you can then celebrate with the sport of Cow Tipping.

Maybe in UK too, but it's probably not as traditional.

I'm a Hindu, cow tipping would be a sacrilege (technically so is drinking, but I like cows better, so I won't be tipping any)
