I put this in Windows 98 forum by accident but I do have XP....

The other day (Sunday) I bought four new CD's and started ripping them to iTunes to put on my iPod. Well I got three of them done and then when I try to get thew fourth done my disc drive wont load. I went back and put in the other CD's that I just got done ripping and they didn't work either. When I put the one that has yet to be ripped to my library the disc drive acts as if it is loading it but then it just stops. When I got My Computer and go to my e:/ drive it says "No disc in drive", this is also what I get from iTunes and WMP.

SO what went wrong? I've updated my drivers and everything but it still doesnt work

Try another CD - maybe that one is bad.
Try playing a CD in the drive. Also, try accessing it using Windows Explorer

Go to Start...Run...type in "diskmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter - can you see the drive listed?

Go to Start...Run...type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter - do you see any red x's or yellow !'s there?

In Device Manager, locate the CD drive, right click on it and select "Uninstall". Click yes when it asks you if you're sure. Then reboot the system and let Windows re-detect and install it. Does it work now?
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
