Hello all,

I am hoping somebody can help. I have several CD's with photos on them that I am no longer able to open. I have never had a problem with them in the past. Now when I put the disks in the drive, I get the error message "CD Rom Drive is currently open please close it and try again"

I am running windows XP Home. These are the disks provided by the people that printed the pictures, and all of them have worked in the past................so I am not sure quite how to fix this............anybody have and idea?

Thanks,

Jim

Highly Unlikely

The Message:

"CD Rom Drive is currently open please close it and try again"


is the part in question.

Even if you manually open your drive door. then try to access your D: drive,
The message should be. Please insert a disc into drive D:

You may want to open a thread in the Malware Section.
Have them check out your machine just to be on the safe side.

I can't do that for you, one has to be a staff member to work on malware issues in this forum.
