Can someone help. In device manager my hard drive has a yellow ! symbol on it. I am running windows ME. My PC doesnt seem to have any problems other than copying cds. A message pops up saying that the buffer is underrun.
Is your CD burner "burn proof", you normally can get this buffer underun if it is not. When burning CD's make sure that no other programs are running as this can use up resources needed to do CD copying.
There are 2 problems here that may be related. If your hard drive has a ! symbol, there is a problem with it, probably with a driver. You should get more information by right clicking on it in Device Manager and selecting Properties.
If you are getting Buffer underrun errors when copying CDs, then something is interrupting the data flow to it.
These two problems may be virus related although I doubt it, and until the hard drive problem is resolved, I don't think it is worth investigating the CD one.
I have run Nortons anti-virus and the hard drive is clean. I am copying on the fly but still would like to resolve the symbol on the hard drive. Thanks to everyone for the responses, this is my first time on a forrum and i am really impressed and grateful.
