Im not sure what the drive letter is for the cd rom drive. But yes, I changed it to the D drive in the command, but you had expand, not extract...did you mean to put extract?

Expand is the internal command to extract and copy
How many drives are in your system counting all hd's and the cdrom drive?
Each drive will be a letter and normally cdrom will take the last open drive letter
For example if you have only one hd and a cdrom then hd would be C and cdrom would be D
If the hd is partitioned into two spaces then cdrom would move to E

i tried accessing an E: drive, not a valid drive so i am assuming that the cd rom drive is D: but the commands you have provided thus far do not work
Any other suggestions?

This is a clean install of Xp correct?
there is nothing else on the drive I suspect since you formatted and installed XP clean?
If this is the case then the best thing to do is to format and install XP again. If all you have done is format and installed then it's possible you may have just a corrupted install.

If a clean install is what you call it then yes....This is what I have done....a friend burned me a copy of the XP install, it kept getting stuck. I stopped it and restarted it. I left it running over night and when I got up this morning it gave me that error about the comdlg32.dll

What else can I do? I don't have another copy of this xp cd?

Wait a burn copy? That is the problem. I thought we were working with a genuine copy of XP.
Do you have a valid reg number that came with your system? You can use a XP disc from a friend as long as it is the same as the original XP that was installed on the system. The only thing is the reg number that should be on the side of your system

No I don't have the original copy of XP, I work at home and this computer was given to me from work in order to do my job. The friend that made this copy for me, has used it on several computers and had success. Where else can I get a copy of the XP cd?

Was the computer originally loaded with XP?
If so then what I stated before you can do. Just borrow an original XP disk Home or Pro depending on what you have. Do you have the original Reg key for your computer for XP?

I believe it was originally loaded with XP, however, I don't have the original reg keys

Somehow, I just got to the setup screen again and chose to format Partion 1. I will see how that goes since it looks different that what I was doing yesterday

Without the original key code then you will need to purchase XP so you can obtain a legal reg key.
I'm sorry but at this point I cannot assist due to the Terms OF Use that you agreed on when you registered with the site.
I am not allowed to assist in the illegal install of software.

Did the new install not fix the problem? As I said before it could be ide controller, ribbon or hd.
You can download the manufactures HD utility in my signatur below and run that. You will need to know the maker of your hd. You can burn it to a cd from the system you are on now and take it to other system bootup with the cd in
Go into bios and change the boot sequence to boot to cdrom first
Let the diagnostics run. That will tell us alot

I'm lost
