    I am having a problem accessing my CD drive and my Floppy drive. Using XP Home on an HP laptop. When I click on My Computer and click on either floppy or Cd drive I get a little box that says "F is not accessible Incorrect function" It gives this message on both Floppy and CD drives. The Cd drive is either DVD or CD and it will play a DVD. But not a CD. When I go to Properties it shows that nothing is in the drive. It will recognize a CD if I reboot since I put in my XP disk and rebooted and did a repair on the ops system, so the bios sees the drive. The repair did not take care of the problem. If I go to Control Panel and Admin Tools and then Disk management, it shows the CD drive and if I put a CD in it, it sees the CD and shows the megabit size but if I right click and say open, I get the same incorrect function message. Any suggestions??????

    Thanks mtbird but I do not have Easy CD on my laptop. I appreciate the suggestion. Wish it had been that easy. I am using Nero. Here's is an update to my problem. I thot I'd try and see what happened if i rebooted into Safe Mode. Both the CD and Floppy function fine in Safe Mode. So now does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix this thing.
