This is a post which I contributed to click here No disk errors can be caused by a number of things, hardware or software incompatability. The exact error message can give a clue.

Fruit Bat /\0/\ given you the steer above remember this though
You will need to free up the d letter if you want to reallocate - the way to do this is to switch off your PC, unplug your cd drive then switch back on. Go through the process explained by Fruit Bat /\0/\ above and then reallocate the letter d which will show as available (when the box showing available drive letters initially opens you may not see letter d - you will have to remember to scroll up)to whichever drive you wish. Once done switch off your PC reconnect your cd crive and switch back on - it will now automatically be given the next available drive letter. Any probs post back
