    Sounds like driver issue. Have you tried reinstalling drivers for your cd drive?

    I'm fairly certain it doesn't have anything to do with CD drivers or anything like that.

    NT access scanner is part of McAfee virus scan.

    The only time I've seen this happen is if two virus scanners are installed at the same time (one of which being McAfee). But I've never seen this behavior related to CD-ROM access.

    What I might do is uninstall McAfee (the problem will defintely go away). Then reinstall it and see if that fixes your issue. You also better off getting a better (and free) virus scanner.

    McAfee, while perhaps a slightly better detection rate than Norton, is poorly accurate virus software.
