    Hi Coldcut.Thanks for your response.I cleaned the lens and rebooted.but I still can't copy.What did change is I started to get a message,"Calculating the time required to copy the file...."When I insert a disk and hit copy I continue to get the message,"D:\is not accessible.Incorrect function."

    The CD/DVD drive was replaced under warranty several months ago.Since then I've played many CD's and DVD's without any problems but this was the first time I tried to copy anything.
    The drive is built into the front of the Laptop;I'm not sure about what you mean by "removable."

    Thanks Again...I'd appreciate any other suggestions...

Have you rebooted recently.
Be certain that cd can still read disks first.
clean the lens.
If the cd drive is removable , power off and reseat it. look for the lock s for it on bottom.

I would lay money on the disc being damaged ! if you have access to another computer with a cd burner in it try to make a copy of your operating disc and then try to install it again. Sometimes when the disc is scratched and you make a copy of it due to the oversampling, it will correct the bad spot. The product key code will of course be the same as on the old disc. I would not make copies to share with others as this is of course illegal but to back up your own operations disc this is permissible. You may also try to clean your cd rom with a good quality disc cleaner as this may also help.

Unable to copy dvd's

Most dell machines do no come with dvd rewriting as standard. They only come with cd rewriting capability. Unless you specifically requested it as an add on to the spec it probably just has the ability to pay dvd's.

Most internet cafe's will have a machine with a dvd rewriter if you really need to copy a dvd
