    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 I had an outdated version that is not combatible (and never will be) with windows XP.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
    Windows XP

    Any help is appreciated.
