Cheers Duffy, may have solved an intermittant fault i've got with disappearing drives when using Nero and XP. I also had to do a re-install to get everything back to normal, Nero used to lose the drives after each copy and they would only re-appear after a reboot. Re-installed XP and all fine now.

I thought of cleaning the lens, but the cd drive does not work at all. You cannot play anything. Even a CD lens cleaner. I wanted to just re-install windows and that should do the trick. But I can't re-install windows because I cannot boot the CD from the CD-Rom drive. Still have no clue on what to do. Does anybody have some tips?

Use a bootdisk, m8. If you don't have 1, get it []HERE[/url]. Make a bootdisk from the file you downloaded then reboot the system with the bootdisk in the floppy drive.
