CD drive not ready with certan CDs-
Posted on 2000-02-17
Greetings: I just set up an old AMD 133MHz unit and was trying out everything to make sure it was totally functional before putting the case together.
The 10X CD ROM drive gave me an error message that "Drive Not Ready." Checked everything and everything indicated that the drive was OK. On impluse, Ichecked another CD and it worked fine. Tried the third CD and it worked fine also. Retried the first CD and got the "Drive Not Ready." thing again.
I pronounced the computer OK but am not satisfied because I don't know why the first CD wouldn't play. The first CD is pretty old (and it does rotate when installed) and I initially thought that the 10X is too fast for it but have it loaded on my Dell 24X. But I don't KNOW. I want to know.
Why won't this first CD play?
The question is: Why won't this CD play?
