    I am sorry if this subject has been posted before. No matter what disk i put into either the CD RW or CD ROM drive I get this error message "Windows can not read from this disk. The disk might be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is not compatible with windows" this started all of a sudden. I have taken out the drives and installed different ones and I get the same message. I have also taken the drives that get that error message and mount them in a different PC and they work just fine. I have seen this posted at other sites but I don't seem to find a fix. By the way disks work fine in other PC's
