Administrators, Since this is the place I hang, will you please allow me to keep this one semi off topic post here so I can get some awnsers from the experts! Thanks! It's rare that I run into a PC problem I can't solve but I have to say this one has me stumped. I am running a Creative Labs MX32 Speed CD Rom and I borrowed my buds Sony Mavica CD-1000 Digital Camera which records the pictures straight onto the mini CD's (3") and my drive recognizes the disk but when I try to drag the images to the hard drive, or even view the files for that matter I get "Unable to read source disk". This drive is fairly new and replaced a failing Acer 8X which eventualy wouldn't grip CD's. I thought that Creative Labs made a good product and I bought this CD Drive and a bundled SB16 card (the SB16 card never did work from day one) And now I get this drive problem.. I got so mad that I ripped the tray out of the drive.. LOL (I fixed that) and I cleaned the optics so that's not an issue either.. Is there something in windows I may need to change? I tried disabling CD Rom Read Ahead Caching to no avial and I tried disabling Sync Data Transfer and this also did not help. The disk is not the problem because I can take the disk to work and place it in any of the IBM workstations in my area and the generic drives read the disk with absolutely no problem. If I could transfer them from work to home that would solve my problem but unfortunatly I have nearly 100 megs of image to get onto this PC.. Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated!
