My PC randomly restarted a few days ago and came up with the message 'A disc read error occured' Press Ctl Alt Delete to restart' When I do press them I return to the same screen! I have tried pressing F8 bit have no real idea what to do when I get to that screen, i'm not too fussed if it has died a death, if this is the case though, is there any way that I can still get info off the hardrive - itunes music - as typically on the same day my ipod has stopped working!!
