Having problems with your Sony PC Desktops ?

I have a VAIO VGCRB30 pc with loads of photos on my hard drive dragging it down. I can copy to cd-r but want o burn onto dvds since they hold many more files and I'll need fewer discs. I have dvd-rw discs but when I try to copy onto it, I get the message ''Windows encountered a problem trying to copy this file. What do you want Windows to do?'' There's also another box that came up talking about ''2 hidden files'' what are they about??


Answers :

Hi thanks for your input. I'm still unsure as to the cause but I think this will help...

\015\012If you go to Control Panel>Folder Options >View

You will see this listed:

Hide Extensions for known file types.

If that is checked, uncheck it. It is a security question. Often a virus will have a double extension. This way you can spot it right away.
If you ever see something like whatever.exe.jpg for example. Do not open it. Scan for viruses

Are you using DVD Writer?! (just for clarification).. for the message box that states "2 hidden files", it states that there is a 2 files that has been set as HIDDEN in the properties... if you want to look for the hidden files, click the TOOLS from the menu bar and select FOLDER OPTIONS.. go to VIEW tab and set the "Show hidden files and folders" under the hidden files and folders...
