Have you installed any virtual cd/dvd programs? What version of windows is it?

Have you installed any programs like daemontools (like programs you can create ISO's from), then use them without the original cd? You could try the fixit here (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982116)

Have you tried a different CD? just to make sure its not that particular CD thats crapped out.

does this occur for both audio & data CDs?

sorry guys for the delay responding
@inphinity...data okay audio not
@ronyville...any cd doesnt respond
@speedy...about to try the fix it now...don't have daemontools...also if it helps do have a program called final codecs which may be the problem...will come back to this forum soon
