    First ?

    Are they an icon in My Computer ?
    2.Are they in your Hardware Devices and working properly ?
    Have they ever worked in this connnection ?
    ? Why is it posted here ?
    These described must be fairly old.Maybe time for a new one or 2.
    Describe the results of opening 1 a little more.

    when i put a cd in my cd drive it says access to specified path denied and then if i click on it in my computer it says windows cannot find napster client.exe and it says that that program is needed to open audio cd's when i put it in my cd-r drive nothing happens at all

    Napster !

    What do you have on this disk ? I have many mp3's "from" Napster on disks.
    Winamp plays them if you set it as the mp3 player.
    But are they mp3's ?
    This doesn't add up.Sometimes a restart will refresh the change of disk.
    I prefer mine on my HD.CD's are backups.

    Disk types

    So these are music cd's and contain files name *.cda.files
    They should play in Winamp for sure.
    Do they play in a car or home cd player ?
    But first do this,
    Can you read any data disks in these drives ?
    Have you installed anything with them ?
    Lets decide if it's only MUZAK.:)
    DVD is another story> You need a DVD player for these.
    ==================
    I'd love to see a snapshot of this Napster error.
    ==================
    But if this is true,you need new ones,Quote:
