Hi,

I received a cd from a friend with pictures on it. If I insert the CD into my labtop and go to Control Panel > D-drive (DVD-Ram reader) I get an error: DLA cann't use this disk since it's not formatted.

FYI: No problems putting in a music cd in or a dvd; system works fine!

Of course I don't want to do that. Googled for info but ran into a lot of very technical information which confuses me even more.

Would appreciate any advice/help.

It might be that your friend burned the CD as a multi–session CD and didn't close the session.

Hi Budapest, :flowers:

Thanks for the quick response. I don't think that's the problem since: another friend could open the pictures. Furthermore it's the second time I ran into this problem, with another CD with pictures of course.

:thumbsup:

Can you see the CD drive from your computer (Windows explorer)? Does the CD drive see the disc when you put it in? What program are you trying to open them in?

Sorry for all the questions! :thumbsup:

Hi stevealmighty, :flowers:

Thanks for your response. Looking at your reputation here I expect that you may be able to help me out; otherwise I am probably lost.


Can you see the CD drive from your computer (Windows explorer)?



I see my C en D-drive (DVD-RAM reader). Opening D I get the error message from my original post.

Does the CD drive see the disc when you put it in?



Yes because my colmputer wants to format the disk but I thing the real answer is no since I don't see a list with pictures.

What program are you trying to open them in?


1. Jasc Paintshop Pro 7.04
2. Adobe hotoshop Album Sorter Edition 3.0

Sorry for all the questions!


No problem, appreciate your help. :thumbsup:

No pressure there huh! :flowers: LOL!



The first thing I would do would be to uninstall the CD drive then reinstall it (let windows reinstall it, as it should be plug n play compatible). Try to read the CD now. Hopefully your CD drive is just being termpermental and uninstalling it and reinstalling it will remind it what it's supossed to do.

Is the CD a CDRW? If so, then I'd try burning the images again on a CD-R (not RW). For some reason, and I've seen it on many different computers, some drives just don't like certain CDRW's, and even if they like them, they might not like the program that was used to burn it. We have 4 identical computers at work, and only 2 of them will read a CDRW! :trumpet: Now, if it is a CDRW, was the session "finalized" when it was done, or was it left open so that more information could be put on it? If it was left open, then you're drive will want to reformat it because it won't see the info on there yet, as it's still "open" (for lack of a better term).

If CDRW's is all you have, you could try burning another one and just ensure that the session is closed (so that no more info can be put on CDRW), and try that.

Try this stuff, and let us know how you make out and we'll go from there! :thumbsup:

Isn't it possible (although VERY unlikely) that the files are license protected and the burner drive won't read them because it's an illegal copy like the XBox only takes original music CD's?

Yes, that would be very unlikely. When a company or photographer copyright protects an image, it usually consits of still being able to view the image, but not being able to save or copy it to anyplace.

To be sure. You want me to go to the Device manager and uninstall the CD Drive there?

When I go to the Device manager I can click CD-ROM/DVD-ROM reader > MATSJITA DVD-RAM UJ-8415. (the software will not allow me to put an H where it says a J now) That's the one??

then reinstall it (let windows reinstall it, as it should be plug n play compatible).


That means I reboot the computer?? Do anything else??

Thanks again. :thumbsup:

Yep, go into device manager and right click on the CD/DVD drive and click uninstall. Restart your computer, then windows should say "new hardware found" and install the CD/DVD drive automatically (you shouldn't need to click anything!).

Give it a whirl and let us know how it goes! :thumbsup:

Sounds a lot like my problems with my Toshiba. Try opening My Computer, right clicking on the drive and selecting "Properties", then click on the Record/Recording tab. There should be a check mark there about CD recording - remove it and click OK, then test to see if it works.

Hi, :trumpet:

Tried both ways but got the error: D:\ is not accessible Incorrect function (something like that since I translate it from French). :flowers:

Any more suggestions?

PS It's a Toshiba allright. :thumbsup:

Can you recognize other CD's in that drive? Also, what is the model drive so I can research it?

By chance do you have a cleaner?

Also, what region is your drive set to? And, what region was the drive the CD's were burned in set to? Oddly enough, I've seen where this can make a difference.
