I installed XP using this drive on my Dell Inspiron 9100 since the internal dvd drive went belly up a few years ago. It reads everything but my Office Professional 2003 CD. The disk can be read by my other computers but this one was registered on this computer before I had to do a reload due to it degrading since 2004. I got tired of nursing it along. Any suggestions.

Is the Office CD a commercially produced disk or a burned copy?

It might just be time to spring for a new internal DVD drive.

This is an original disk not a copy. Have you ever tried to find a replacement internal drive from dell which will install in my Inspiron 9100 notebook. I will welcome any help in this regard.

Doesn't seem to be any shortage of drives available.

Thank you for the google. There are more drive replacements now then I found a few years ago. I shouldn't have given up looking. Thanks again. I did figure out how to copy my CD on to a flash dive and install Office 2003.
