I'm having a similar problem. I have to open and close the DVD & the burner a few times before it recognizes a CD, then it sometimes takes 3 minutes before it does. I'm thinking of doing a format c:\ and reinstalling XP or perhaps going back to 2000

I had a similar problem with my CD/DVD drives, except that mine disapeared. I posted on this forum for some help, and I got a reply. Click on the link below to view it, it might help out. If it doesn't fix the problem, I suggest that you do a format and clean install of win XP....
Hope that helps....:)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
