Hello there!

I am trying to fix the problem No disk ..........but no luck. Please note that both CD drives able to boot CD. BIOS detects CD drive. My desktop PC tells me to insert a disk in the drive even if there is a cd in the drive. I did change drive letters and paths, still no luck. I have the following drives:
Floppy Drive: A
Local Disk: C
Removable Disk: D
CD Drive : E
CD-RW Drive: F


As I insert a dvd movie in the drive to watch it shows nothing and I get the above msg. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for your msg. Your 1st and 3rd question was touching! Yes you are right. My CD drives are not compatible with DVD. Looking at the properties of my CD drive, I thought ASUS CRW-2410A DVD/CD ROM, CD - S520A DVD/CD ROM would run any DVDs.....

I did change CD Drive with a used DVD. It worked for me. Thanks again.
