    All of a sudden a lot of my cdroms are not being
    read "disk not formatted" error. Some cd's used days
    earlier and some that worked befor I upgraded to XP Home
    edition. No hardware changes just OS.

    More than likely you need to update or reinstall your IDE drivers.
    Especially if you were upgrading from windows 95 or 98. Go to your
    motherboard manufactures site and download the newest drivers.
    You'll need to know what model motherboard you have. If it doesnt
    display on the boot screen you'll have to take a peek inside the
    case. Most chipset manufactures provide a full driver set for all of
    your boards built on devices.

    If this doesnt solve your problem its probably the drive itself.
    Luckily they are cheap these days.

    Good Luck!
