Hi, I am running XP home and professional and have been unable to load programs through the D drive.The system does not attempt to run the disc. I have tried using the Run instruction D:\setup.exe but the only response is a screen message to insert a disk,even when the disc is already inserted.
Any advice on how to fix this problem would be appreciated.

I would try a different optical drive...and/or...ensure that the software installs properly on a different system.

<<I am running XP home and professional and have been unable to load programs through the D drive.>>

This is a dual-boot system?

What "software" are you trying to install?

If the optical doesn't work properly in either install of a dual-boot...I'd say that the drive may be bad.
