    Thomson problems!

    I know, i really know that this is not the right place to ask this but, i have no´were else to go to, and for what i know you guys are experts, here is my big problem:

    My uncle has a Thomson DPL 800 UD system, and the only problem (and BIG one) is that, it refuses to read backup CDs.
    He was told that he could unlock that function but the guy was really lame and whanted alot of € for that, and the place were he bought it went broke.
    I already sent an e-mail to Thomson but they wont replay

    I have no were else to go, please someone help me! please!!

    Thanx alot

    When you say that it refuses to read 'back-up' CD's, does it still read / play music / games etc ?

    Or is it not booting from the CD ?

    If you could just add the extra details to your post, it would be appreciated.

    If the CD's just don't 'play', there is always the option that the CD was disabled in the BIOS.

    Also :
    Could you explain what YOU mean, EXACTLY, by back-ups ?

    I'll post the link to a sticky in General Computer Discussions,
    This gives a list / template of details required to allow the membership a better chance of an answer in the shortest time, I've already had to ask two things, sometimes speed is of the essence
