    Error when inserting CD?

    Please bear with me, I am not sure if this is an Office thing or an OS thing....

    Whenever I insert a CD, I get an "Access to the specified device, patch or file is denied." I've checked my hardware drivers and seem OK, and I have no problem accessing files on CD thru Explorer.

    The CD (music/data/whataver) or drive (I have 2: a plain vanilla drive, and a CD-RW/DVD drive) used make no difference. I get the same error every time.

    There's probably a painfully obvious solution to this...please help me buy a clue!

    Thanks

    According to Microsoft, you may need to set the permissions on the device or file, or on the directories in the path to the device or file, to allow you access.

    Also found this: Access to the specified device, path or file is denied

    The KB link was the exact fix. Funny, I searched on the error text and didn't get the article. Guess I didn't use the "magic words". Or maybe my spelling is even worse than ususal...

    Many thanks!

    No problem. There were several references to check out, but thats the only one that seemed to match your problem with that error.
