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....:)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
