    Whenever i put a CD in my computer while running windows it comes up with an 1 tracked audio CD (see fig 1.0). I tried running Smart Projects' IsoBuster but it came up with a PVD error (see fig 1.1.) In DOS (not the windows one - the one that comes up when you choose command prompt only in the boot menu) it works. It happens with most disks some even worked when i first put them in and half way through using them it comes up with a cannot find file error and this has happened.

    I'm running a Windows 98SE system with 500mhz ram DOS7 128mb RAM a CD-RW Samsung SW-204 as drive (E:)(the one that has the problem, it also wont write disks for some reason) and a DVD as drive (D:)(that dosn't work at all) I bought my PC from Time (oh no not TIME?!?!?!) and a HD with 14 GB worth of files, 15.5 GB used and a 20GB capacity of which 19GB works.

    Hi cwin2000

    tried a lens cleaner on it?

    if you restart into safe mode, do you have too many cdrom devices listed in device mnager?
    if so, remove them all and restart
