if its a disc based media you have to finalize it to let other things see whats on it.
Hello ladies and gents,
I've recently acquired a used digital camera (the Canon Powershot G7)through ebay. Unfortunately, it didn't come with the software disk. Luckily the seller offered to send me a copy of his software from his own camera (the Canon Powershot G9). Everything seemed fine and dandy until I inserted the copied cd-r disc into my Liteon Ltd 163D dvd/cd rom drive. Nada! Nothing happened, the player made the normal whirling sound then nothing. No pop-up warning notices. Nothing. The hour glass icon pops up but you might as well wait until hell freezes over before anything happens. Can anyone please help? I have Windows XP Home Edition 2002.
