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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
