My laptop, have been using it forever... primarily for work, remoting into my customer sites, doing IT stuff
Just today I tried to read a CD. It won't launch, and I can't access it. Attempts to do so say 'D:\ is not accessible. Access is denied'
I am the only user of this machine. I have the same problem whether I log in as myself, or Administrator.
To the best of my memory, I don't believe I have installed anything for several weeks. This just came to my attention today.
The CD is not even visible anymore in Windows Explorer, under Computer. I get to it by going into My Computer. Double clicking fails with the Access is denied error.
Right click, properties, security -- it tells me I have to be an administrator to continue. Which I am. I hit 'continue'. It pulls up the 'Advanced Security Settings for DVD RW Drive (D:)', and under Current Owner, I have: Unable to display current owner.
Again, this is a problem logged in as myself or the administrator.
I don't see anything informative in any of my evt logs.
