    As for your first query, it seems that your cd writer's lens have some problem. only by ejecting the disc and the rotation of the disc doesn't mean your lens is ok. Try this to check if your lens is ok: goto device manager, locate your DVD/CD ROM drives and extend its property by clicking the plus sign against it, do it for the drive you r facing problems. then right click on it and goto properties->volumes->populate. Do this while keeping a cd in the drive. If ur drive populates the cd correctly then your lens is ok but if not then u have to get a new CD-RW drive.

    as for your second question, you have to install Windows ME first then Windows XP.

    Happy computing.........

    After installing XP u cant install any prevoious version of Xp inXP mode.
    To install such previous versions u have to setup throgh bootable media.But after installing any version like ME u have to reinstall XP agaain as bootloader will directly boot in ME and no option to select xp.
    Have a good luck....
    If any problem then let us know.
