    Hi all
    Here is what happened.
    I had to uninstall HP Photosmart C4100 series only because I was missing some wording on the buttons that just disappeared for some reason, so I went on thier help and support and it showed the exact same problem and what to do about it, It said to uninstall the program and then just reinstall it.
    Well now, when I go to reinstall, it will not automatically start so I clicked on my computer and dvd-rw Drive (E:) and there are no files, in fact it states that my my file system is CDFS and the CDA Default - Full ___ It says all space used 672 MB and Free Space 0 Bytes

    What the heck happened, I am no computer wizard so can you please help me to correct this, I can't download the Photosmart program back onto my computer ????

    HELP

    The Cd is not dirty, in fact it is only about 2 weeks old so its very new and I checked it, it is very clean

    First step, try unintalling all the optical drives (CD and DVD) in Device Manager and rebooting. See if it gets it's mind right.
