I have a 10 year old system like 350Mhz or something and the CD drive will not resond to either music nor data cd's. All drivers are installed and i've uninstalled them and re-installed them. What is an "I/O error"???
This is what is displayed evertime I try to access the device its an
O1PD42T OPGK1O11ST1 or something like that. Like I said its OLD. Its made by Standard Cd.
Hope some one can help and would greatly appreciate it.

Further more the windows add hard ware wizard and all other apps tell me that the device is working properly. P.S. It is Windows Server Family NT2000

Sounds like the things just died of old age.

I/O error = Input/Output error.

sounds broken yes. If you are handy you can open up the drive, blow the dust off it, very gently clean the lens with a cotton stick(some use fluid like clean water, but needs to be very less so it does not drip over the side of lens). Then clean&lubricate the shafts which move lens holder. It may work for while if its not an electronic fault. The other thing is that it may not read align propely anymore due its age and that is almost impossible to fix due to the 'economic' design of the drive. One fault can also be the read lens laser broken, but then I think it will not report I/O error, just will not read any discs. Maybe try to find another drive somewhere is more worthwhile..

Ahhhhh.... I see. Yes it is old and quite dusty...yes. [content edited]. Alright gotta look for a new one for an ancient computer, I don't even know if its worth it. Hey a USB flash drive would suit my purposes for transfering files to the computer wouldn't it???I mean it has a USB flash drive but it would be Windows XP to Windows Server Family NT 2000. Any opionions. P.S. I'm not going to use this computer extensively just mess around with it. Its like playing with dinosaur bones.

They are cheap units. Why mess with it. Go buy a cheap one and install it.

Definitely DON'T use water to clean it... methylated spirits or de-natured alcohol would be best, or a CD cleaning disk if you don't wanna' mess with the casing

taken from a service tip:
"if it is not clean it with some CD cleaning fluid or distilled water.
Never EVER use alcohol to clean a lens as this will leave a thin film on the lens and it may react with some plastic lenses!"
