Each time I enter a blank CD into my drive I get the following message

E:\is not accessible

Incorrect function.

I am running XP Professional V 5.1

Can anyone help please?

Try unistalling the IDE channel that the drive is on from Device Manager and reboot. Let Windows find the drive again.

Also make sure that the IDE cable is not damaged.

I have tried what you suggested, including changing the cable, but I am still getting the message. My motherboard is an Asus A7NX8-E Deluxe.

On the control panel, Device Manager, under IDE/ATA/ATAPI controllers, I see NVIDIA nForce2 ATA Controller.

On the secondary channel tab see attached

Uninstall the NVIDIA IDE drivers and reboot. That should reload the MS IDE drivers. See what happens then.

Just out of curiosity... do you have another cd drive you could try to make sure that the one you have is not dead?

check the drive properties to see if DLA is active?
(turn off if it is)

When the system attempts to re-install NVIDIA nForce2 ATA Controller, it displays The file nvatabus.sys on SRCDATA is needed?:dead:

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!
