Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

My actor daughter was to be in a show in Westchester this Spring, which just got cancelled. She's upset.

And she's thinking of moving back home, with things closing down in Manhattan. Many of her friends are doing that. That'll be ok with us.

Wow, tetherball, haven't thought about that in years!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm David Dichelle:

Doc: Hope things get back to normal for her - and everyone - soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm doctorjazz:

Anyone with computer savvy have an idea what I should do? My Windows 10 PC, which has ripped hundreds of CDs, suddenly isn't recognizing them. I put in the disc, and get a message telling me there's no disc, I need to put one in the drive. Happens with multiple different CDs, ones that I've previously ripped. No clue what to do.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm David Dichelle:

Doc: It could be your CD drive or the connection to it. Have you tried an external drive?
Avatar 9:35pm JakeGould:

@doctorjazz: Is this a laptop or a desktop?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm doctorjazz:

Desktop...i haven't tried an external disc drive, I'd have to buy one to see if it worked (external hard drives are fine)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm David Dichelle:

Maybe you can borrow one to see if it works.

this is beautiful

...i'm not so present on the boards but listening the whole time; so's my niece -who came here from california yesterday and at 1pm today got word that her school is closing for the rest of the semester.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm David Dichelle:

Doc: Or if it's a desktop you could switch it with one from another computer.
Avatar 9:44pm JakeGould:

@doctorjazz: Before you spend money on a new CD/DVD drive, I just checked and there was a Windows 10 update today. And to my knowledge Windows 10 automatically patches itself? I would recommend rebooting and seeing if that helps. And if that doesn’t help then try reinstalling drivers. Here is the official Microsoft page on updates. Note that “18363.720” was today. docs.microsoft.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Andrew Waterloo:

@doctorjazz. usually the PC based drives will read anything, and all that work is done by windows. If you can't find a second drive, you could try a USB based install of Linux to see if can be detected there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm doctorjazz:

Remove one from a laptop and connect it internally I the PC? Sounds above my pay grade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm David Dichelle:

An external one is probably easiest if the Windows update doesn't do it.
Avatar 9:45pm JakeGould:

Look at this site for more info. Windows updates tend to break drivers. www.groovypost.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm David Dichelle:

Coel: That is tough as well, so much upheaval.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm doctorjazz:

Rebooting didn't help (the one thingi learned to do in these situations). I'm guessing it's something in Windows 10.

Avatar 9:48pm Flash Strap:

Do it for WFMU, for the Sparrow!
Avatar 9:49pm JakeGould:

I would recommend just reinstalling drivers. Is this a custom desktop, or an off the shelf model? A USB external drive can work and they are relatively cheap — $30 for a basic one — but if it’s a driver issue then even the USB drive might not help.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm David Dichelle:

One last prize reminder (just in case):

Sun Ra: Crystal Spears (LP)

Laurie Spiegel: Unseen Worlds (Double LP)

The Mighty Sparrow: The Slave (CD)

Pledges $20 or more put you in the running.

It's a custom desktop, I put together witha friend (the generously describes it that way, I stood and handed him the screwdriver)
Avatar 9:51pm JakeGould:

@DoctorJazz: My hunch is this is a driver issue.
