i took the cpu to a computer service center, it seems the cd rom is not working properly. i thought it was still working since i was able to read audio cd's but he said it's gone and that its better to replace it than tryin to get it repaired.
i guess ill have to buy a new one..
thanks for all your help man..truly appreciate it.

This is why i said to try it in another comp if possible as this proves if it is OK or not.

This can save a lot of time in the long run than messing about with the operating system or software and causing even more problems.

Glad you got it sorted, they are fairly cheep nowadays.

Stick to a well known brand name for the replacement.

Hook it up the same way its connected in your comp, then see if it works OK there or not.

If not its faulty and will need replacing.

You can get DVD/RW drives now for 25 or less.
