Perhaps seshu's native language is not English. I'll take a stab at a translation:

"I have installed windows 2003 server in my server hardware"

(I installed Windows 2003 Server on my computer.)

"ofter installation i started installation of other windows softwares like MS Office"

(After the OS was installed, I tried to install the MS Office software)

"but i am not able to see content in the CD"

(and no files show up when I access the CD-Rom disc.)

"I have Checked That CD in Another Windows 2003 server there I can"

(I put the MS Office CD in another computer which is also running Windows 2003 Server. It will read the disc and I can see the files. This tells me that the physical media of the disc is not the problem.)

"Whats My Prob In this Server"

(Does anybody have an idea as to what is wrong with my first computer?)

"If i want to C MYCOMPUTER It Is Taking somuch time I cant Able to run Other Tasks also when the Cd is In the CDROM"

(When I select "My Computer" it takes a very long time when there is a disc in the CD-Rom drive and I cannot run other programs while it is loading.)

"I checked two three CD but No Use"

(Also, when I try two or three other CD-Rom discs in the drive, no files show up. In other words, this particular CD-Rom drive does not show the content regardless of which disc I have put in it.)


seshu, You might try using a cleaning kit on the CD-Rom drive. It may be that there is dirt or dust on the read-head laser.

Or it could have something to do with the drivers that the Windows 2003 operating system installed.

Otherwise, I'd suggest that the physical CD-Rom drive is dying and needs to be replaced.

If you feel up to the task, you could physically swap the CD-Rom drive to the other server computer and see it it works there. This would tell you if it was driver related. It you put the 'good' CD-Rom drive in the 'problem' computer and it now shows files, then you will know that it is the specific drive that is the problem.
