When you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways

It will not play Verbatim DVD-R disc that I burnt on my computer.


If it can read any other disk, you should burn your disk again because burning process was incorrect. your computer can't recognize the disk. In this case, probably you can't do anything, no way to try to read a bad disk if computer can't even "see" it.
By the way, you should test to read the disk on some other computer.
If happens with ALL your disks, your optical player is defective.
Again test reading with other computer if record was made correctly
As for your device, you should check if worth to repair and decide if repair or replace it.

Problem when downloading file says installer integrity check has failed. common causes include incomplete download and damaged media. cannot install files.


If you're reading the file from a CD-ROM, then either:
* the CD-ROM drive is reading incorrectly,
* the CD-ROM is scratched, and thus cannot be read 100% correctly,
* bad RAM in your computer, that "corrupts" the data being read from the disk into the RAM.

Replace the CD-ROM.
Replace the CD disk.
Download "MEMTEST86+", and run it, to test the RAM; replace, if necessary.

My computer display error disk reading while it is


check your disk for scratches etc and make sure it is clean. Then, using the disk, reformat the hard disk and re-install from there. DONT take the disk out of the drive unless the installation program asks you too. Once the install program releases control and you have entered any names and passwords, then you can remove the disk. Once everything is finished, make sure you re-install your mainboard drivers next. If you no longer have this disk, you can download them from the PC's manufacturer or the mainboards manufacturer.

''A disk error has occured'' upon start up


You cannot. (Remove any media from the diskette-drive and from the CD drive, and try again to reboot.)

The message is indicating that the disk-drive containing Windows is *NOT* readable. So, nothing can be read from the disk-drive.

Take the computer, and the original "IBM System Recovery" set of CD-ROMs, to a computer-store, and get them to remove the "dead" disk-drive, and install a new one, and to re-install Windows from the IBM CDs.

Maybe, while Windows itself cannot be read from the "old" disk-drive, the computer-store *MAY* be able to recover your "data" files.

TEAC DW-28E DVD/CD-ROM not reading TDK DVR+R disk


ON a computer than can read the disk and has CD/DVD burning software installed on it, check the status of the media sessions. If this was writtien as a multi-session disk and the session has not been closed, many older drives will have difficulty reading it.

Can not read disk error


You can't install any hard disk from any computer and install it into your computer and expect it to work unless it came from the same model computer with the same devices that are installed on your computer.
When Windows is installed it configures the operating system unique to that computer and stores this info in the Windows registry.
To get a used hard disk to work in your computer, you have to install Windows as a fresh installation on your computer.

Cant install program from DVD drive GWA-4164b


First check that your system meets the minimum requirements...ie. you have at least 512mb of ram, CPU of at least 2Ghz Pentium4 or equivalent(with off-board video), and your hard drive has >4GB of free space.....can view full list at:
http://www.amazon.com/Spore-Mac/dp/B000FKBCX4
Is SPORE on a duel layer dvd? If your drive is on the older side, you might try a newer one or you can try the following:
--take out an empty flash drive with
--go to a computer that will read the disk...if you have another computer or u can use someone elses
--put the disk in their computer and if the computer is able to read the disk, then put your flash drive in the computer and copy the disk onto your flash drive...
-y-ou can now try to install the program from your flash drive instead of using the disk...
NOTE: Trying this method wont cause any damage, but if the disk is encripted or if the install software is set to check for the disk during installation, then this may not work, but is worth trying since because a) even if it doesn't work, no harm is done, and b) you wont need to replace your disk drive if it does work.
