    My friend burnt two CD-RWs for me. the first one worked after I tried mounting it three times. now I'm trying the second one - I tried to mount it about 20 times and it only mounted once, (and like an idiot I removed it by accident [​IMG] ).

    anything i can do to get this CD to mount properly?

    It sounds like an issue with your cd drive.

    As a wild guess, I would disconnect the cable off of the drive
    and at the motherboard.
    Straighten out any kinks, and reseat the cable.
    Then try to see if that works.
    It's also possible of course, that the cd's have too many errors on them.

    Not the CD drive, 'cause the CD didn't work on other drives either. I asked the friend to reburn the CD, and I'll try it tomorrow.
