Hello all. I have a little problem here. Every time I try to put a CD in my main CDROM drive, it said:

E:\ is not accessible
Disk structure is corrupt and unreadable

This only happens when I try to install a program.

Example: If I try to install a game in the E (Kenwood 72X) drive, it will give me that error message. If I install it using the F (TDK VeloCD 8x4x12), it will install. Then, if I take the cd out of the F drive, and put it in the E drive, it will run from the E drive.

This never happened in 98. I upgraded from 98SE to XP October 25th.

Please post back with any ideas.

I forgot to mention. I talked to a Microsoft technican on why this might be happening. He said that it is due to Adaptec Easy CD Creator. I had an outdated version that is not combatible (and never will be) with windows XP. I deleted all the Adaptec stuff, and I am still getting this error.

Any Ideas?

Try going into the device manager and unchecking the box for auto insert, then restart computer.

I have a Cd-rw in the e: drive and installed the adaptec softwhere which came with and it works fine, so does my DVD palyer in F:


Did you upgrade from 98 - 98se - XP?

I am not a expert at all, but wouldn't your system be a lot tidyer if you upgraded 98-XP?

I wouldn't act on anything I have just said as it could be all rubbish wait for some of the views of the clever people ;)

Thanks Candy, but that didn't work. Pete, here is what I have had on this system:

Windows 95
Windows 98SE

Any help is appreciated.
