I have done a clean re-install of XP,installed service packs,drivers,other software etc.
When I insert my Soundblaster Extigy soundcard installation disc into the cd/dvd drive,it won't read it.
The disc works fine on other PCs.
My CD/DVD drive plays other discs ok.
I have downloaded a copy of the installation disc and mounted it virtually and this doesn't work either.
Any suggestions please?
I have - Athlon XP 2.8,512MB,160GB,SP2
When I put the disc in,it spins for a while,timer on cursor etc.
Then screen goes black(as it should before programme starts),then nothing,stays black.
Have to shut down PC with the off button.
When I try the virtual disc,I get - "The file format is invalid or unsupported."
With the disc,I sometimes get the "Windows has encountered a problem...." message,but not always.
At first,the CD/DVD drive did not not even recognize a disc was in it,but does now,just won't play it.
