O/S - Windows XP Home (original installation, not upgrade from previous version)
Tried removing the driver and forcing an update but still got the problem - though this did fix it long enough for me to run a cleaning disk on the drive.
tried different types of disk as well and no format is recognised, (cd cdr cdrw and audio cd)
Been getting this error message for a while now - at first I put it down to dirty or scratched cd's, however I now notice that it is also giving the same response to my e drive (both asus drives, one dvd rom, one cd rw) and also to my floppy a drive.
To my knowlede the only recent update to my computer is the upgrading to the latest Norton Systemworks.
Very annoying so any help will be greatly appreciated.
