Will it read any cd's at all? If not then most likely the lens is dusty/dirty which is even more common if it has been smoked around or if the lens has been touched. If on a laptop then all you need to do is get a cotten swab lightly moistened with rubbing alcohol & clean the lens. If this is an internel cd drive on a pc you might want to try opening the drive & cleaning the lens & applying a little 3 in 1 oil to the rails the lens moves along. "Has worked for me many many times on lots of drives" If your not comfortable doing this than you may just want to replace the drive as they are fairly cheap on http://www.newegg.com but if the drives bad it wouldn't hurt to at least try fixing it.

Hope this helps,

-Bryan

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.

Dvd rom doesnt read dvds


Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "DVD/CD-ROM drives"). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'DVD drive' icon there is your problem!
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only.
Click on the faulty device and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
Update the Drivers---
