cd/dvd drives not reconised in another profile

  Kingfisher 13:48 30 Nov 2010

My two cd/dvd dewriters drives work pefectly in my profile but when I go to my wifes and daughters profile both cd and dvd's wont play. they are visible in my computer as d and e ram drives but will not play or recognise any disks. My o/s is win xp sp3.
any help would be appreciated

Have you tried checking out the permissions, right click on one from your profile and then goto properties, one of the tabs (possibly) security will have a permissions area, you will then be able to add them two via their usernames and assign them the same rights to it that you have. Sorry for my vagueness, It's been nearly three years since i used XP!
