Okay, the driver for the CD (hal.dll) needs to be reinstalled.
\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012Do the following:
\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012Press the windows key and R
\015\012\015\012\015\012Type in command
\015\012\015\012\015\012In the command prompt that comes up:
\015\012\015\012\015\012Type in cd C:\\Windows\\System32\\
\015\012\015\012\015\012Type in taskkill /f /im "hal.dll"
\015\012\015\012\015\012Type in del hal.dll
\015\012\015\012\015\012Then restart your computer
\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012What taskkill does is kill the CD Player application that is using the\015\012driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will\015\012automatically reinstall the CD driver, and the problem will be\015\012fixed!
