Hi everyone,

Im using a Hp pavillion dv9000 series laptop with vista installed on it..

I am facing a very strange problem, I cannot seem to access my CD/DVD via explorer. When i Try to explore it pops a window preparing the CD/DVD for formating.

However, I can access all the files on the CD/DVD via the Command prompt(Dos Commands)

anY ideas?
