Your error is usually indicates that the drive can't read the CD. I ask everyone these two: check to make sure the CD is right-side up (label facing up or to the right on a vertical oriented drive) and did you insert a DVD into a CD drive? Can you use Windows Explorer and right-click on the CD drive letter and select eject and it works? If not, a driver could be missing. Lastly, if you inserted a blank CD (that can be written to) into a CD drive that can only read CD's, you'll get that error.

I am trying to reinstall windows xp prof but i keep getting the blue screen and the system keeps shutting down, i have tried a different hard drive but get the same error.


unplug all devices except the hard drive and 1 cd/dvd rom drive. disable the audio device and any other unnecessary devices within the BIOS and remove all pci cards. remove all but 1 ram stick, and try using different ram sticks, one at a time, while trying to boot. if it boots, with 1 ram stick, 1 hard drive and 1 dvd/cd drive then try adding/reenabling the other devices one at a time, until you find the device that keeps it from booting.

if your pc wont load with just a hard drive, cd rom and 1 stick of ram, then it is prolly trashed. if removing/disabling one of the other devices (such as the sound card or the modem card) allows it to boot, then you have found what needs replaced.

A signalling problem of course. Have you fitted it to the Data cable properly? Check the Jumper Settings if it has Jumper Cables. Make sure it receives proper Power, enough to function well. Check BIOS settings to know whether the Rom is Detected.
You can try this while you are in the Windows as well. To check for errors you have to get the "Event Viewer".
  • Press Start menu and Click on Run.
  • Type in this and hit Enter.
  • Eventvwr.msc
  • If you see any error under the Category "System", related to CD Rom please le t me know.
  • You have to check the Device Manager as well. If there are any errors Related to the Rom you will see a Red X or a Yellow Exclamation marl near the Device (!). To get the Device Manager you have to Right click on "My Computer" icon and go to "Manage". (Or type devmgmt.msc in Run box and hit Enter)
  • Then click on Device Manager.
  • If you see any errors let me know.
  • Finally you have to check the Storage. Get the Device Manager again. (Or type diskmgmt.msc in Run box and hit Enter).
  • Go to the Properties if it Shows the Rom.
  • Check whether the Device is in use. Check whether it is DISABLED. If disabled, Select "Use this device (Enable)" to Enable it.
  • Make sure that you don't have Viruses (or a Corrupted antivirus Suite) or Corrupted Nero Installation.

One additional check. Make sure Plug and Play services are Running. You will see (if errors occurred) in the Event Viewer. You can check whether the Service is Disabled by Navigating to the Services Snap-in.
  • Type this in the Run box and hit Enter
  • services.msc
  • Scroll and look for Plug and Play. If its Disabled: Go to Properties and Set it to Automatic.
Hope this will solve you the issue.

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


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

Recovery


this is a READ error known as a CYCLIC REDUNDANCY READ ERROR.
If the CD ROM is not able to read from the disc .. it gives u this error
This can come due to many reasons
1. OLD CD ROM - not able to read data properly
2. CD with lot of scratches
3. CD not written properly: Data not burn properly on CD at the time of its make.

Solution: Try to insert a new CD in it and then check whether it works or not
or get a CD LENS CLEANER DISC which will remove any kind of small debris on the lens on the CD ROM and then it will work.
This would surely help
