I have had this system for over a year and no problems. A few days ago I could not access my dvd drives in xp. They are still assigned letters in my computer and the device manager tells me that both devices are working properly. I have tried every type of disk that I have. They will not autoplay nor will they open. I have not installed any new software lately. Everything else on my system works. I have a dual boot system, xp pro and vista ultimate 64 with each os being on a seperate hd. When I go into vista my dvd's work fine. I have downloaded the latest firmware for both optic drives. I can't play music from a cd or install any programs. My computer shows me that they are there but i just can't get in them.
Thanks

Try one of these:
1. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
or...
2. http://aumha.org/downloads/cdgone.zip
or...
3. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstal. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.

I tried that too. I just reinstalled xp that fixed the problem. I think that it was a problem in the registry I was not able to access my flash drive either. With a fresh install everything is back to normal.

Thanks
