very big trouble with cd drives



ok, the whirring noise i was having on boot, i think it was my cd drive not the hard drive, i'm not sure. (see this thread) however, it doesnt make it at the moment, but when i get into windows, i cannot use either of my DVD or CD-R drives!!! they do appear in my computer, and the device manager says there is no problem with them, but... if i put something in , and then try and access it, D (the dvd) says "incorrect function" and E simply opens up, and shows as empty (probably something to do with the built in cd recording of xp). what is going on? are my cd drives broken? i tried booting into dos with cdrom support using a 98 boot disk and i could get a DIR on both drives, so i think they are working to at least some extent. any ideas? i am worried.


Are all the connections in place? Sometimes if the cables become slightly unplugged that happens, Windows will recognize 'em but they wont work right. Make Sure that calbes are connected right, uninstall then reinstall the drivers or try hooking them up separately.

I've had this problem a few times and it always seems to be InCD, which is a program that runs along side Nero. It's something to do with the fact that the version of InCD you are running isn't compatible with windows XP. This fault has usually occured when I've installed updates from Windows, but last week it was caused by installing faulty RAM into my pc. Basically I uninstalled InCD (and Nero to be safe), re-installed Nero and then downloaded the most recent version of InCD. It seems to have fixed the fault, although my floppy drive isn't showing up in My Computer.

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
