    I just built my new pc, and when I start it up I get a error saying Disk Read Failure, Please insert System Disk.. So I insert a Windows xp cd, and it still says the same thing, I know the Optical drive is working because of the sound it makes when it reads the disk. Thanks.

    Since I've seen some people get the wrong drive because it was cheaper, I have to ask: Is the windows install disc a DVD, and if so, does your drive read DVD's?

    Edited:

    How do I tell if my hard drive is connected right?

    Yeah... CD only, bub.
    here is a pioneer CD/DVD drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827129043
    You could also salvage from an old machine, if your last one had it.

    Most people say CD for any type of media on a disk.

    Exactly. His drive can't read DVDs but that's obviously not the problem since he's not trying to read a DVD.
