Question HP 8650c Recovery ...probllem [HP; 8650c; win98]

sponsored links
My neighbor brought over his pc that had crashed. we ran the HP recovery disk's to perform a total reformat and recover. Now we have a problem with the cd/rw drive is having trouble reading most disks. Many times with the "M:\ is not accessible not ready"
Why is the drive letter loaded as "M"? is something to do with HP. the unit only has one hard drive , a cdrw and a floppy.

I appreciate any help

Thanks Steve

I have had that problem too with our HP 8370, I cant remember how I got around it though. Do you get to the recovery screen? If so, does the problem start after formatting and when you are ready to recover files?

Need more info to help you out.

I was able to reinstall the operating system from the recovery CD. The drive seems to have problem reading, writing most disks. I changed the IDE cable. The drive is making a considerable amount of noise.

The drive is 5 years
