Factory back-up discs and recovery discs are intended to repair defective installations or to kick-start an installation that refuses to start so it is unsurprising they will only go so far.
Your system disc might be defective. This is a problem I have had with XP in the past. It is possible your CD/DVD drive has a dusty lens and is unable to read the disc properly or perhaps the new hard drive has a problem.
I suggest you instal the new hard drive as a slave in another computer and format it and run the chkdsk utility. If all is well reinstal in your computer.
Take a close look at your system disc checking for flaws and perhaps put a lens cleaning disc in your CD/DVD reader before trying again.
First are you CERTAIN the computer you are using the dvd in is capeable of reading dvd discs? If so I'd recomend purchasing a cd/dvd cleaner (available online and in most audio shops) and a CD Lense cleaner.
This should cure your problrm, unless it's one of the first signs of the laser wearing out, in which case a replacement drive is required
Do you have a disk with the operating system on becausse you will need one
Then put it into the disk drive restart the laptop pressing F12 a few times as it starts up and then choose the d drives to run the cd installation the computer will then hopefully start up and say press and key to continue
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.
Imy burner will burn if I go into MY COMPUTER than into MY E drive but the auto burn will not work. I do have 1dvd click and ashampoo on the computer as well, but when I put a disc into the computer it will not automtically work. I was wondering if the above programs are stopping the auto play on it or what? The burner works fine if I go to the E drive and install o burn it that way, is there some kind of a setting or something that went out of wack??
Hi, had the same problem myself, turns out (after some investigation) that the motor that spins the dvd wasn't getting power. I carefully pulled out the smaller ribbon cable that goes to the small circuit board beneath the drive caddy, then pushed it back in. Put it back together, turned it on and off it went! Yay!
Hi, if the PC's are older than 3 years or the cdrom drives are near it's end of life, it will make problems to read some CDR's. If you recorded the CD's you are trying to read, try recording at less than 4X speed. Sometimes, even "original" or "silver" CD's will make problems because they are not recorded correctly at the factory. If the problem is with a CDRW drive, it applies the same theory, the recording laser is damaged or used up. It will not record a legible CD or DVD even if the software says that the record operation ended successfully.
