well, the disk to install the tablets preferences and software worked fine, and i even tested the drive by putting in 3 different cd's and movies to see if it works for specific cd's, but they all work fine. Its just the software bundle that wont show up, and the disk doesn't have 1 scratch or dirt/dust mark on it...
How unusual..on the plus side I looked on Wacom forums for you and there is someone experiencing the same problem. The wacom support staff said:
Please call our Customer Support line so that we can provide you with a download for these applications. From time-to-time, there is an issue with individual DVDs, so we can provide you with another one or an alternative way to get the software.
This was in 2010 but I'm sure the same policy will still applies. Good luck!
