What kind of CD-ROM drive is it, and what kind of discs are you trying to load? If it's an older drive and you are trying to read CD-R or CD-RW media, it may not support reading them. I've had problems reading them on newer drives also like those TrueX things that flopped a few years back. There could be lots of other reasons. The discs may be scratched or need cleaning, and if not the lens in the CD-ROM may need cleaning. Regrads, Solver.

Everytime I put my disk in and try to load it my disk D drive reads insert disk in drive D.


Try cleaning the CD and trying again.
If you installed the program using a different CD drive letter then you will need to assign a permanent drive letter and then reinstall the program

The disk wont load


What happens if you put the disk in and run the greeting card program? Does it ask you to insert the CD?

If you have AutoRun turned off for the CD drive, nothing will happen when you put it in. And most software install disks are not bootable, usually only OS and Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware disks.

Also, if you have two CD/DVD drives, try the other one.

My disk drive is not working i am trying to down load a new program and when i put the disk in it will read it and then error appears


Hi saratrought, if Windows XP runs and you have read problems in CD/DVD drive try to read another disk, if any other disk work fine then you need to copy your CD/DVD info (or program) in another new disk.

Or just use Windows Explorer to try copy all data from CD/DVD disk to a New Folder in your Hard Drive and then from that location you can try to install your program, if your data don´t copy well then again i tell you that it´s your disk not your CD/DVD drive.

Sorry by bad english.

How too down load picture from computer too cd?


ok ...practically you have to burn into a cd some pictures that ya have stored into your computer ....if we are talking about a cd and not a dvd...its easy...you do not need aditional program to do that cause windows xp already have a program built in that allow ya to make a cd...
so ...insert a blank cd into the disk drive ...first ...than locate the pictures you want to put on the cd ...and copy them into the disk drive folder...they will look like they are blured ..cause in this moment they are temporary files there ....in the left side you have some tasks ....one of them says : write this files on cd ....click on it ...and the wizard for writing files on cd will start ...choose a name for the cd ...or leave it with the date ...and click next ....the wizard will do the job ...
the only thing you have to keep in mind is that a cd has only 700 M space on ...and you do not have to load more than that .
the easy way is to make a folder first and put all the files on it ...and then add teh folder to the drive folder, in this way you will have better control on the amount of files you add....
second, ....if you want to burn a DVD disk ...you will have to install a program to do that ..such as NERO ....or any other program that assist on burning ...

How to reformat a notebook laptop with no CD-driver?


Remove the hard-disk - it will usually connect via an IDE or SATA-compatible interface. You can then connect it to a computer (internally, or via eSata / USB / 1394 enclosure). You can then format it from that computer.

When you say no CD-driver, do you mean Driver or Drive?

if there's no CD drive, it should either have a floppy drive (in which case, any system book disk can re-format the HDD), or USB-booting capabilities.

If there's no driver, than a Windows 2000 / XP CD should be able reformat the disk - when you boot from it, it will load drivers off the CD. You don't need to install Windows normally, the recovery console can format disks.
A Windows 95/98/ME boot disk/CD will allow formatting, but only in FAT/FAT32 file systems (you will probably want NTFS, which 2000 and XP can create)

Winload.exe


Hi there.

When you turn the laptop on, keep pressing Alt+F10. This should open the recovery program. Follow the on-screen instructions for factory settings.

Let me know if this does/doesn't work.
