Okay, I am running Windows XP Professional and this is the issue. My computer reconizes my D: Drive, however, it can't read any discs. The error code says that there is a bad block.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Could you post the entire error message. Include any numbers and title of the error box.

I ran the checkdisk and everything was fine. I've also uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, etc....the "usual" fixes that I've read on this board.

When I put a disc in, the error I get is this:

Windows cannot read from this disk. It may be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is not compatable with Windows.

When I go to the Error Reporting~Event Viewer, I get this explanation:

The device, \Device\CdRomO, has a bad block.

Source: Cdrom
Category: None
Type: Error
Event ID: 7


Thanks for responding and I look forward to any more responses. :thumbsup:

There is more information on this error message HERE. It appears it could mean anything from a defective or even a dirty disk, to a defective cd drive.

Sometimes devices have the Windows and MAC drivers on the same disk. Sometimes not. We bought an Epson printer and the MAC and Windows drivers were on seperate disks.
Could you have the wrong disk?
