I don't get it...1st you repair it, then you wipe it out? Why did you even bother to do the repair if you knew you were gonna format?

Did you convert the Fat32 File System to NTFS or did you format? What is your D drive, and what are you trying to run from it and are you doing this from within Windows?

More details...

You mean you converted from Fat32 to NTFS. You don't FORMAT from Fat32 to NTFS, unless you actually reinstalled the Operating System, formatting as NTFS.

Does the optical drive read the contents of the disk you have in the drive?

Yes i do a reinstallation (WinXP SP2->UDSP3). This machine was built by me in 2004.Shure i,am not a "guru" i,am a craftmen, problably you are right i convert. Any bad situation about do this? I just read that is "better" for the OS. Now the machine working smooth, but still got the CD-ROM issue. And no it can,t read but if i open C: D: has no info, but if i right click on D: the contents appear (ex:music, images, etc... Also i can hear music on WinAmp but no in WMP 10.

Thanks for your advice, pb.
