    When i insert a disk into C drive it will not load and i canot go via My Computer. Its like the disk is simply not being registered. Setup, Run and Auto run will not run properly as they are full of errors. It seems that C drive no longer exists. I am very confused.
    Anyone got any ideas??????????

    Hi,

    I'm assuming that you mean that whenever you stick a CD into your CD-ROM drive, you cannot access it, correct?
    What errors are you getting exactly?
    If there is no CD in the drive, can you still see the drive when you open up My Computer?
    Is this only happening with a certain CD, or have you tried various CD's, and you get the same result?
    Right-click on My Computer, and select Properties from the menu. Then click on the Device Manager tab at the top. Is your CD-ROM drive listed there? Is there a yellow and black symbol on any of the devices listed?

    Please post back with more info.

    P.S- When exactly did this start happening?

    I have tried with a number of disks but when i put them in the drive attempts to load them but fails and stops after a few seconds. CD-ROM is still there in device manager. Nothing new appears in my computer.
    A week ago the computer had trouble loading disks and now it has completely stopped.
    Also the computer has been defragmented too often by my dad ( he doesnt know what hes doing). This can damage the drive cant it?
    Thanks for your help, hope to hear again soon
