I am having a problem with my cd rom drive. Every few minutes, the drive light comes on (even though it is not in use). When this happens, the system hangs. The system sees the drive ok, and I can read cds. However,
the system hangs when the cd drive light comes on. sometimes it just hangs for a moment and recovers..sometimes, it locks up the computer completely and I have to reboot. Up until now, the cd has work just fine.

I have deleted the cd from device manager and reinstalled it. I have tried removing all unnecessary tasks from msconfig for startup. I have also virus sanned.

It almost appears that the hard drive and the cd rom drive are "talking" when the cd light comes on.

I have tried everything I can think of. Please help.

Do you have a virus scanner set to scan all drives? Or perhaps an indexer program like Microsoft Fast Find running?
