    if this is a buffer under/over running problem you can try two things - disabling fast writing and writing at a slower speed.... Also may help us if you tell us the writer you are using and what software, or more details...

    :confused: when transfering a file from one hard drive(c) to another (d)the triangle appears with the message of data lost. :confused: the same happens when opening a e- mail and trying to transfer to d drive,all data is lost,with audio files on d drive and when trying to play them a error message appears with the following code :- COOD11CD

    These 2 HDD, are 2 partitions on the same HDD or 2 different drives?If they are 2 different, have you checked for cables, if they are both in UDMA mode!? Also do you run any antivirus program at the backgroung running a very deep full scan!? Is HDD D a usb HDD!?If you could write down more characteristics about the 2 drives.Also does this appear when you do the opposite (transfer data from D to C) !?Have you checked for the integrity of drive D? :)

    Try a player other than WMP - if you wonder why see here

    I am confused this is happening just moving across HD's - on the plus side it might mean your optical device is OK. I think we still need more information and that the last problem is just a side effect of what went wrong earlier on. I mean I know you are confused, but just try to describe everything so we can try to see what is happening... or maybe a screen shot of the first step where problems arise?

    we need more info - you still haven;t told us if these are partitions (logical drives) or if you have separate physical drives? Is discwizard some sort of utility? How does "enabled" and "disabled" come into it? I am afraid you seem to have lost us... so far!

    both drives are physical drives (seagate barracudas 40 gig each) ,the programme mentioned is a seagate programme for maint.,partitions etc.,going back to the problem the drives have reverted back to not being enabled,hope this will help you. :confused: :(

    So we are talking about 2 different HDD.Please read the following and answer them as set:

    1) Look at system in control panel, if they are UDMA or PIO.
    2) Also a defrag should be a good thing to do.
    3) Check the cables, if they are connected alright inside.
    4) Also, what power supply you have in your tower and what is your hardware donfiguration.
    5) Is it running any antivirus program at the background.

    Please answer me these questions as set, to be able to help you
