    try 2 things now:
    1. Go in thru safe mode (hitting F8 repedetely as windows loads) and see if it works then..

    2. uninstall the cd rom from the system properties window and then rebooting so it gets installed again.

    how old is the drive? it could just be fuXXored i'm afraid.

    still no joy in safe mode or after uninstall/install, it is both the cdrw drive & the dvd drive not working right (is there something common to both as they both are acting the same), they are both 1 year old

    hmm maybe if they are set to "cable select"...that sometimes results in bad things happening. You should have them set as master/slave

    if both drives are on the same channel, try a different cable! might be that simple. :confused:

    could be a case of having DMA enabled? I remember this problem coming around on Win98/ME because of DMA being enabled... I realise it would be annoying for it to run as PIO, but might be worth a try? The DVD software may have enabled it during installation?

    Just a thought ,perhaps you might look at your Mobo drivers which include IDE drivers etc.
    Reinstalling them can help similar problems.
