How come I cannot hear voices with my DVD home theater system? 

by on December 25, 2010

Q: I just purchased the Curtis DVD5088 5.1-Ch DVD Home Theater System (great deal) Anyway, I tried to hook it up and the sound was funny so I asked a cable installer friend to help. He hooked everything up perfectly but the sound is weird. We are able to hear everything like door slams and the music soundtrack on the dvd but there’s no sound on the actually people talking? Please help…anyone?? Happy & Safe Holidays!!!

Will installing iLife 11 fix my DVD drive? 

by on October 23, 2010

Q: My 21 inch iMac running 10.6.4 will not record DVDs. It also will not play any movies and cannot read the recovery disk. I am wondering if i upgrade to iLife 11 if it will fix things.

Maybe there is there a way to erase the hard drive and reinstall OS X from the internet since the DVD drive doesn’t seem to work or maybe install Windows 7 and buy an external cd/dvd writer?

How come my computer tells me that blank DVDs have no space on them? 

by on September 11, 2010

Q: Hi, with a brand new DVD in my burner drive, I am shown 0 free space and 0 used space. But with a brand new CD in the same drive, I see available free space and 0 used space.

I am trying to burn to the DVDs and can’t – I presume the burn failures are related to the zero/zero issue.

The zero/zero and burn failures happen with both DVD+R and DVD-R type discs.

I am using XP(Pro) SP3, fully updated. I’m stumped – any help would be appreciated. I hope I have explained the problem clearly.
