I run this monthly with no problems. This morning I ran it, progress bar went to half an inch the Asked for my disk. I inserted it and had to press the retry button nine times before it finished. Is this normal? It has never happened before.

It does happen sometimes.

However, if you have two optical drives, make sure you are using the D drive (a rewriter would be D and a ROM drive E).

It can also happen if you are running XP SP2 and you CD is only SP1, but you said that you run scannow regularly. Have you made any changes to your computer?

Explain please.

My D drive is a DVD drive and my E drive is a CD-RW drive.

Normally, if the rewriter is the Master and another drive the Slave (the standard setup), Windows XP will allocate drive letter D for the rewriter and E for the second drive.

Even if you install, say, a ROM drive first and it's allocated D, when you install the rewriter it will take over the D drive letter and the other drive will be E.

Thank you all for your help. I guess it sometimes just happens.
