Oh my god am I stressed out here...
I just last night formatted my computer... Before doing that, I burned all my important music samples and files and programs and such, into a DVD cd... It burned fine.. Afterwards I tried to see if I had burned correctly and inserted the DVD into my DVD player (in the computer of course)... All my files were there and I could open them like normal...
Then I went and formatted my computer. I had some trouble doing that. Took me awhile.... Then when that ended, my internet wouldn't work. That took awhile to fix also... Now I'm sitting here with two 4.7 gigabyte cds, almost crying because I CANT ACCESS MY FILES!
It seems the DVD player/burned works fine. but when I put those cds in it, it wont do anything. No autoplay... Then in my computer when I click on the drive, it gives me an error... "E:\ is not accesible - Incorrect Function"
Please, I'm begging anybody, is there any way i can get to my files? I'll do anything.
I'm running windows XP (ran the same before the format also)My computer is a DELL desktop computer. Dimension 8250 and Service Tag 64GPL0JMy DVD player/burner is: Dell DVD+R/RW Drive (NEC ND-1100A DVD+R/RW Drive Basic)
Please help me... I'll even put your name on my cd credits if ya like

Thanks for trying to help.. But it didn't work :(I still get the same message
now its telling me to insert a cd in the drive... but there is a cd in the drive... and it's no blank!
I am running Windows 2000, and had the same problem described. After installing the latest Windows updates, I can no longer access the CD Drive. I've swapped out the drive with the same results. I noticed that the Nero software (specifically the speed test?) that came with the system was able to access the drive.
Thinking that the Nero software may have been the issue, I uninstalled it all - the problem didn't go away.
There are post SP4 hot fixes/updates available from MS. If I can get on the internet at home (where the problem is) I will download the post SP4. The comical problem is, I was trying to install DSL software when the incorrect function issue came up. I can't install the DSL, and the DSL on the phone line has all but killed my dial up access (down to about 20K with the DSL noise overhead).
Sometimes it's heck being a geek....
couple of comments. First, Jeff (predator) usually hits the nail on the head and the info on his site usually works. Since the original poster said it was working until they reinstalled Windows and now it won't work and there were other items that didn't work initially, I would suspect there are problems with the install and you need to do a "clean" install - reformat hard drive and then completely reinstall everything. This will require temporarily setting the CD drive as the first boot device so you can install Windows XP from the CD (after you have it installed you can set the BIOS back to the normal A,C drive boot sequence).
In reference to the last poster with the interference problems on DSL. You must use the filters on the voice telephones and on the analog computer modem link. If you are still getting cross-talk between the DSL data and the voice lines there would appear to be an install problem with the DSL line. A properly installed DSL/Analog line will not have crosstalk when the filters are used in the analog devices. If your installation has the filter installed on the Telco demarc box (usually on the exterior of the house) which means there are no individual filters required at the analog phones and you are still getting crosstalk, it could be the telco splitter or it could be a problem with the in-house wiring (normally the customer's responsibility). If they didn't run a separate in-house line for the DSL, then the DSL is on the Black/Yellow cable pair (and the analog/voice is onthe standard red/green cable pair).

Cyphergirl, thanks for the URL.
Unfortunately, it didn't work for me.
Performed a clean install of win XP complete with re-partition (backed up with norton ghost 2003 first, sweet program). \Still no dice...
Talked to Dell support, the best they can do is send me a new drive (yee hah!)
Will let youse guys (and gal) how it goes.
