To troubleshoot this problem, use the troubleshooting steps below After you complete a step, retry the program If the problem remains, move on to the next step

Clean the data side of the disc with a soft cloth.

Check the location of the MSCDEX you are using Check for multiple copies of MSCDEX on the hard drive Make sure that these don't exist in a directory that is in the Path statement (Rename these MSCDEX files.)

Verify that you are using the correct copy of MSCDEX Many CD-ROM manufacturers ship CD-ROM drives with modified copies of MSCDEX particular to a drive

In other cases, switch to the MS-DOS version of MSCDEX MS-DOS 3.1 is the first version of DOS that shipped with MSCDEX

NOTE: MSCDEX version 2.22 shipped with DOS 6.0 and later MSCDEX version 2.95 ships with Windows 95.

Reinstall the CD-ROM device driver from the original disks It may be damaged.
