I can install stuff of any auto start CD, and nero can verify that burnt data is correct, by reading the CD.

if i place a cd in the drive and have a look, it says

"F:\ is not accessable
incorrect funtion"

hey .Clueless,
The following may be of use:

various info (http://www.greenspun.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg.tcl?msg_id=008w1K) or possibly this MS site VCD under W2K (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;811281)

Cheers, Babe.

I had the same yesterday Clueless. Wrote to the cd but couldn't read. A bit later all was fine.

Ejecting it works for me...
Take it out and push it back in again. If its verified it, then I have 100% assurance the CD is fine!

Only sometimes happens after a burn....

Theres 4 machines in this network, and since i rebuilt the network, this one is the one that has always given me trouble ... every time....EVERY TIME (grumbles a lot about this)

This problem may have gone away by itself, it may have gone away because i removed the audio progs that wanted the CDR to be a dedicated audio player.. (see previous post (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=29434&message=118414)) but the problem had remained for a few weeks, and magicly disapeared when my back was turned.
