Hello all,
If ite not one problem its another...heh
Here goes:
sometimes my cd-rom,rw,and floppy work sometimes they dont...lately they havfent been.
When i try to access cd-rom or floppy i get "incorrect function"
cd-rw just shows a blan page.
This happens no matter what cd or disk i use..reboot doesnt fix it..they show up in device manager just fine, and as working...when i reboot using xp cd-rom, it boots from it, so i know they are fine..
Any ideas suggestions? i tried a large hammer...and that just made things worse for some reason ;)
Thanks all :)

have you tried to uninstal the device, in device manager, rebooting so windows redetects the device.
You may have some corrupt drivers.

Do you have the newest version of Nero installed? There have been a lot of problems with older versions - the same problem you're experiencing.

I'm willing to bet the problem you're having is Nero releated. Use the searh, above right, and type in Nero to see what others have done to fix the problem.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
