Does anyone know the cause of this problem? Symptoms are slow boot and problem reading the (in this case) Lite-On Cd/DVD-ROM. Various forums have reported the problem but I have found no solution. I formatted disk using Seagate's drive prep s/w (current version), HD is not new but never a problem, installed WIN 98 & upgraded to XP using an OEM disk and now Event Manager shows CD & ATAPI problems ID'ed as 7, 9 & 51. CD/DVD was in another computer with no problem, replaced cable - no help, can't use lens cleaning disk as drive will not run it. Have an API log that looks like it might show a problem but I hesitate to post it as a bit late for me & maybe overkill now. Should I just reformat & reinstall or is there a less time consuming solution. Thanks

this may seem like a dumb question, but is your CD-ROM empty?

well, a slow boot can be caused by a myriad of things, so that is most likely not related to your other problem.

is your computer is slow only when you try to use you CD-Rom or is it more constant.

What I am thinking is that you are trying to use a badly damaged CD. If your problem is more constant then there is something else.
