    Hey gang!! Quick question to anyone who may know. I reformatted my M-6862 and now when I try to burn my dvd's or cd's with the labelflash I get the message to insert a blank cd or dvd, there is already one in the drive. anyone know why this is happening? I installed the printlabel that came with the computer but I can't get the flash label to work. Thanks for any suggestions

    Hi uab ...

    You are not really telling us much to go with ... but if I had to guess ... one of these things might be happening ...

    You are using somekind og Virtual Image Drive thingy ... so it probably crashes your application quietly.

    Or one of your programs crashes your DVD player application.

    Q1: Does rebooting fix this problem!?!?

    Q2: Does this "asking for a blank" only happens with LabelFlash?

    Q3: Can you play a CD with WMP and DVD with PowerDVD or some similar type software?

    G!:)

    I've owned this laptop since about October, and now when the fan starts up, I swear it's a lot louder then it used to be. Anyone else having this issue?

    This is an annoying problem I still periodically have with my m-6862:

    Does anyone else experience the computer freezing up completely (so you hafta hold down the power button n turn it off n reboot it) sometimes when you either have the computer running and then either disconnect the AC power, or when you re-connect the AC power? Like it doesn't happen ALL the time, but a good 50% of the time if i am doing something then either re-plug in the computer, or unplug it, the laptop locks up, making me hafta turn it off completely.

    The best "go around" solution I've had so far is just putting it into sleep mode which only takes 10 seconds or whatever, whenever i am connecting or disconnecting it from AC power, but it's annoying.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Yes, I am still getting this problem every once in awhile. Does not seem to have any set pattern to it - I just follow your "sleep mode" advice and it seems to do the trick.

    Yeah I get this and it has very little rhyme or reason to it. For awhile the laptop was freezing 2 out of 3 times when unplugging it. Then for awhile it never happened. Then today it happened 1 out of 3 times....

    So it's really odd, and infuriating.
