Windows 10: Nothing seems to be happening after inserting new Dragon 13 CD ? Solved

    Nothing seems to be happening after inserting new Dragon 13 CD ?


    Still very new to Win 10 so after inserting new Dragon Speech v13 CD can't find it in the files anywhere as was the case with Win 7 ? And what to do next as there's no prompts....

    Appreciate any help thanks.

    Insert a different data CD, is it seen on the system?

    You state as was with 7, were any data CD's working in 7?

    Bad CD or you have a HW issue with your CD/DVD device with information presented.

    Yes another CD worked fine just now on Win 10 thanks. It's a mystery as there's usually always a prompt screen as happened on my old 7 with Dragon. You might be right about a bad or poor new CD though as there's a small revolving silver circle that sometimes appears and disappears next to the cursor but nothing more....

    Will keep trying

    Yes, if another CD works, then it's more likely a problem with that disc.

    That said, though, I have to ask - its not that you are trying a DVD program disc in a CD=ROM (No DVD) capabilities, right?
    (You can check on the front tray (depending) if it has DVD on it, or how windows labels the drive when a good disc is inserted ...)

    No it's the official disc to install Dragon, but all ok now for some reason as the correct prompt screen suddenly appeared after about an hour of trying so V 13 now downloaded correctly. Teething troubles I guess as with any new computer mine being a Lenovo G50 laptop.

    Thanks for your help though - definitely one more oddball for the record book....

    One final thing, I need to burn a spare Dragon disk just in case but can't find where to do it though I have seen a right click marked burn somewhere...

    Well ...

    You have to have a burning program for that, as to whether or not you may have a right click menu option depends on what you have installed on your system.

    You might try right clicking on a file, or the CD drive, however I'd just recommend using a program to copy it, hopefully it doesn't have anti copying properties to it.
