    I have a computer that will not read CDs unless an admin user is logged
    in. I've removed the 3rd party burner software and reinstalled the
    cd/dvd driver but this doesnt seem to help.

    From what I understand there might be some issue with ASAPI and rights
    but I'm just using the standard Microsoft stuff here. When a CD is
    inserted it says CD Disc 0 Bytes/0 Bytes. Any ideas?
