    Hello All

    Quick question here.

    My CD drive on my Toshiba M40 laptop seems to be acting up. I just formatted my computer and got it up and running again. I go to install some of my programs, but for CERTAIN CD's, it says that D is not accessible (where D is my cd drive) when i double click the drive in my computer.

    Now it can't be the disk because i have given the disks that don't work to a friend and they worked fine on his computer.

    Agian, my computer only does htis for certain disks, not all, so, i dont know what to do.

    Any feedback would be aesome. Thanks in advance.

    Bryan

    Clean the disks
    perhaps the drive is just going
    are they running in DMA mode (look in device manager, primary/secondary controllers of IDE controller area)
