    Exclamation A very very bad problem here...

    I get a "access denied" error when I try to veiw my CD/DVD or Stick Drive.
    And there are little locks on the icons too; showing the fact it's not a hardware problem. Restarting doesn't do anything about it, and I am the administrator of this computer. Help didn't help either. I am running XP Media Center Edition.

    Please help, Queatrix.

    Go into the Device Manager and see if they have any problems.

    Viruses? Is this only on this computer?

    No problems, is says they are running fine.

    >> Is this only on this computer?
    Yes.

    >> Viruses?
    Now that you mention it, when I restarted, I was able to access my Stick Drive before the computer fully started up, but while I was veiwing it explorer suddenly cut me out of it and said "access denied".

    Explorer If it is only on this computer, it's probably a hardware issue or viruses. Try running a scan.

    No, I found it. My "Acer Managment" program automaticly locked them and 7 other devices. So I unlocked them and they are fine now. Thanks for the help anyway.
