A few weeks ago, my hard drive died. I got a new one put in but was left on my own from then on. I didn't have a windows boot disk so I had to install DOS 6.2 since it was the only piece of software I had to hand.

I found the correct drivers for my drive, and loaded them in autoexec.bat and config.sys. Now, when I boot to the DOS prompt I can switch to the drive by typing "D:\".

After that though, anything I do produces an error message saying "CDR101: cannot read from drive d".

Any ideas? It's a Pioneer 32x CD/DVD drive. Thanks!

cdr101 normally indicates a faulty drive (assuming you have tried more than one cd in it)
