Well! Beggars *CAN* be choosers!

Get a laser-cleaning CD and run that through the drive.

If you can't (or are too cheap) to get one of those, try leaving the drive-tray open overnight to see if it's just a condensation problem.

Rejected cd


If it does it to all disks you are using, it is likely that either the drive is bad, or you are putting them in upside down.

Any EIDE (non Sata) interal drive should work on this computer. However, first I would check the internal cables on the drive to ensure the are plugged in tight (you may just have a loose cable). Check both the mother board end and the drive end.

Personally I would go puppy linux over 98, but that is me.

Hope this helps, have a great day and good luck.

Can't play CD's


The cdrom drives are either dirty or the laser eye needs to be calibrated. The reason that dvd's would work in the one drive but the cds will not is because there is the signal used to generate the reading of the dvd is different from the cd signal. this is the simplest way to explain it.

think of it as a stove that works on both gas and electric. you use the gas but one day you run out and only the electric works. you need to fill the gas tank first to use it again. In the case of the computer you need to tune the laser or clean it.

Without a lil technical background i would not advise opening the unit to do this. i would take this to a service technician. Purchasing a new drive though would be cheaper in the long run. Even 2 new drives would cost aroudn 60$ online where cleaning from a tech could be that or double.
