That usually means it needs replacement. As long as you see the drive light up and spin trying to read things then you know the problem is in the drive. No lights can be power or cables. You may have noticed that it wouldn't write dvd's then it wouldn't read them, and finally it wouldn't read the cd's.Thats a typical failure pattern. When these drives fail the heads get out of alignment. So the dvd's have problems first as they require a lot more accuracy. The cd's are relatively coarse and tolerate a lot more mis alignment. This is repairable but definitly not worth doing. when these were worth hundreds of dollars we would realign the heads but they are so cheap these days you should just get a new one.

Need file asms to complete installation


The problem is some files in your installation cd cannot be read anymore.

Options:

1. When the error appears try to redirect the wizzard to the directory of your CD ROM and locate the file.

2. If you have back up copy of your xp cd use it to replace the xp cd you are installing when the error appears.

3. If you have a copy of your xp installer on your hard disk re direct the wizzard to that directory.

Dvd rom detecting problem


You need to find what DVD reading and CD and also DVD burning software you had, then download versions of the programs compatible with Win 98--then they should work fine. Your CD/DVD drives will be ignored until you get the correct burning software installed. Go t Samsung, which hopefully will have the appropriate downloads for Win98. If Samsung no longer has what you need, find any software for Win98 such as Roxio, or hopefully freeware, and you should be back in business.

Dvd combo


Did you try axcessing the drive manually ??? Start > My computer > D:(you cd drive),, If it doesnt show up then the drive may be damamged. If it does you just need to associate the .ext with a program. Double click on the drive if a option box doesnt open up, you should see the audio files.. just right click on one and select properties. You should see the program the file is associated with. Just click change and select another program.
