More On The CD Rom Error
One of the most common errors relating
to a CD is the CD Rom error code. There
are many types of CD Rom error codes
and the popular ones are CDR 101, 102 and 103. These
codes may crop up when you are trying to access the
CD Rom drives. The above codes are caused on account
of a number of reasons and they have been discussed
The first of the CD Rom error codes
is the CDR 101 error that may crop up due to hardware
and other driver issues. When you are faced with this
problem it is suggested that you should try to boot
the computer from a boot disk that supports a CD Rom.
With the aid of this you can test for the occurrence
of CD Rom errors and on whether all
the drivers are properly loaded in the diskette. When
you are checking for the drivers you must ensure that
you have all the latest drivers installed in your system.
If the drivers are not properly loaded on the system
you will have to face the CD Rom error.
There are other CD Rom issues in the form of the CDR
102 CD Rom error where the cause of
the error is caused by driver issues in the software.
In order to fix this error you will need to remove /e
from the mscdex.exe and subsequently set it from emm386.exe
to auto in the autoexec.bat. This can be done if you
add /auto at the end of emm386 line in the configuration
system. The third CD Rom error that
may arise is the CDR 103 error generally occurs when
the CD is not in accordance to the required ISO 9660
standards. You will need to ensure that the CD is cleaned
properly. If you are facing this problem with just one
CD there is a possibility that the CD does not conform
to the above standards and it has been improperly made.
