    When trying to copy files to a CD to take a local drugstore for printing I was unable to access the D drive. We kept getting a message:"D:\ is not accessible - incorrect function". Eventually we moved the files to a shared folder and I accessed them from our other computer and did the copying on that computer's drive. The drive on the original computer does work - I put in two different cds - one an audio CD and the other witha Flash presentation on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The computer in Question is a Dell desktop. The computer also has Roxio CD creator on there - that wouldn't even let me copy pictures with the version that we have.

    Thanks

    Go into Device Manager and open up the DVD/CDROM heading. What does it say about your drive?
