Windows ME, 700mhz, 10gb, 256ram.

I NEED help with 2 problems, firstly I removed my DVD rom and fitted a CDRW and have had several months without trouble, until an unrelated fault required a restore and recover, since then the CDRW does not see DVD's "no disc in drive D", it has no problems with CD's etc, including installation disc's, I put old DVD rom back in and it can read DVD's just like old times but I need my CDRW.
There are no installation discs for rom's required.
I was advised to format the hard drive then do a restore and recover to see if this would cure fault, but (second problem) I am unable to do this as "cannot format hard drive because windows is using some of these files"
I hope someone out there can help me.Grin

regards Foghorn

Hi,

Does your cdrw support DVD's?

What is the make and model of your cdrw drive?

Thanks for replying
Sorry I should have been more clear, the previous rom was a DVD player only and when I installed a CDRW it took over as a CDRW/DVD player (even though it was only bought as a CDRW).
The name of the CDRW is Cyberdrive CW078D

Hi,

CDRW drives do not read DVD unless it is some sort of combo drive which this one doesn't appear to be.
