Hello, the one i want to format is made by 'time' and i am using the discs from my emachines which incidently say they can only be used on other emachines.

What you are doing is illegal as the CDs are only licensed to the original machine they came with.
Secondly you'll probably find the drivers are specific to the new PC and won't work with the old one.


"which incidently say they can only be used on other emachines. "

Doesn't that give you a clue then?

See your other thread too....

The emachine restore disks will definately NOT work on a Time machine.
