Hi, It recognises all other disks when I try them, it just wont recognise this one, it is a disk that a friend sent me with a program on it, its a CD-R. I know that the disk is in the drive, so why would it say that it isn't in there?....Thanks
Hi, Just tried that and it's still not recognising that theres a disk in the drive, I think that its a problem with the disk and not the drive as the drive is working perfectly well with other disks, but have you any idea what can be wrong with the disk?
Try Start/Run, then type the Letter of the Drive i.e D:\ now Browse and look for the file that you want. At least that way you can see if the Drive is functioning or whether there is a real problem with the drive.
The drive seems to be working because it works with other disks. So, it really sounds like a problem with that particular CD -- but try TonyV's suggestion to see if it's the whole CD or just a single corrupt file.
BTW, you can't assume that home-burned CDs are as robust as factory-pressed ones: They're a completely different technology, and can easily become unreadable due to light, heat, and other abuse.
