    just tried saving some pictures on to a CD RW drive on to a disc which already had pictures on it. I use adaptec direct CD and windows 98 SE. It didn't work then I tried looking at what was already on the disk and it came up empty. I tried a new disc, several in fact and got the following message
    Error :Reserve track
    Hardware error{0x80491a8}
    You will not be able to read and write to the disc through drive letter access.

    I then found a disc of a different brand and was able to do it. I then looked at several other discs on which I had saved images in the past and again was not able to read anything on them when I clicked on the disc in "my computer"
    it came up as a blank disc. Can anyone explain what is going on and what I can do about it please but make it simple

    have you got access to anither PC with a CD on it - it would be good to know you can read these CD else where - then its a case of CD hardware on its wayout / Software drivers need updating become corrupt.
