been having a problem with the CD Burner, "disappearing" ... I found
this event in the event viewer
"The device 'SAMSUNG CD-R/RW SW-252S'
disappeared from the system without first being prepared for removal.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at
When I go to the M$ link to get more info on the event I see this
Obiously, I didn't actually remove the internal cd burner from the system,
In the past year I have dealt with it by a reboot, which takes care of
the problem for quite a while. Now the reboots are not working.
The only think to change on the box recently is the install of OpenVPN
1.6. I don't think this has much to do with my problem UNLESS the
Win32-TAP "virtual" interface installed by OVPN is interfering with
the "hardware" CDBurner.
