sounds like you have a program trying to or accessing the D drive, making it unaccessable to you, you might look for this....TT

I have heard somwhere that DVD combo dirve's (IE DVD+CD+CD-RW) can have problems reading from copy protected plain old cd's. It is for this reason that i have a DVD combo drive and a straight foward CD-Rom drive...A good example is that my copy of Norton firewall will not install from my DVD drive, while Norton system works will. I think it's just an 'undocumented feature' a they say.
