This has been posted before but I'm seeing a lot of threads again posted with titles like "Please help". This isn't helpful at all. Could you please try to use a title that gives people an idea of what is wrong. If your CDROM is malfunctioning something as simple as that as the title would be helpful.
When members are looking through the threads to see what they can help with its better for us to see what the problem is immediatly as we all are better at certain things than others and it saves us wasting our time reading a thread on something we know nothing about.
Thank you.

Also remember, we don't all know it all, so If you get a remedy for your problem then letting us know what it is will give us a chance to learn a bit more and then we can pass it on to others with the same problem as yours. There is always room for learning even for the "Experts".

I totally agree with the above comments

Good point, well made, as they say.

I'd just like to ask more seasoned members not to berate new members for failing to do so. I always dislike a posting that simply tells the new postee that he/she should have been more descriptive in choosing a title and fails to offer any further advice. On a similar note, I dislike the tone of a post that says "This is a computer forum - not for mobile phones / cookers / flattened hedgehogs" and so forth.

Admittedly it doesn't happen often but when it does, I'm disappointed to read it because it takes nothing to be friendly.

Sorry about the double posting - site didn't respond for a while...

Also, try the 'Search Forum' facility, as a problem similar to your own may have already been solved in another thread.

cheers.
