After installing iTunes the DVD/CD drive is disabled. I deselected "Use iTunes for default player", but the DVD/CD drive was still disabled. Is there a way to reenable the DVD/CD drive after installing iTunes?

    I hope someone will post to this question soon. My dvd rom will only run if iTunes is running. This occurred after I tried moving my iTunes library to an ext hard drive. Now my music is not found in iTunes and my dvd rom wont play unless itunes is running! Help!!?!?!

    Hoping to see if anyone else was able to rectify this problem.

    I've been having a hard time over the last few months with my CD/DVD Drives. My DVD burner would show a disk inserted but everything would be blank, my CD-R would always tell me to insert a disk even though it recognized a disk was inserted. Last night I finally decided that maybe it was the lens, so I took everything apart and set everything back up, but again nothing worked.

    Now I go to start up Itunes and it tells me some of my drivers are missing (I created a NoCDBurn reg yesterday but deleted it before) but to my amazement both my drives now worked. I updated Itunes to fix the driver problem, restarted my PC and again the drives broke, but once I started up Itunes they loaded up fine.

    So it seems there is a file associated with Itunes that takes precedent over the drives. Since I have a month old new Ipod I'm going to give a call to tech support tomorrow since its clearly Itunes screwing with the PC, but wondered if they are no help if anyone here has found a fix.
