Trying to use an old computer using Windows 95 as a storage device for photos. When inserting photo disc into drive the following message pops up: D: forward slash is not accessible. The device is not...


Well, the "D:/" means your cd drive isn't reading or recognising your photo cd's. It's possible that if you've a very elderly computer, that the cd drive is also pretty ancient and can't handle writeable or rewriteable cd's ..only commercially produced ones. This is quite common with old cd drives. Hope this helps you understand the message, though no help in resolving it! Regards, Nicam49

Go into the Bios and set the boot order to HDD (hard drive) as first boot device, save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will restart and try to boot from the HDD.

Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.


Does the PC boot up and the displaythe desktop with icons? If not try repairing the OS with the bootable original OS CD/DVD and select he repair option or reinstall the OS without formatting on the same drive/partition. If after this you can access the BIOS, keep all settings as default or fail safe option. Also run checkdisc if you can fro m the ROM.....................sodeep
