the only security software is eset smart security 64bit V5 last built

i have Intel Rapid Storage Technology Installed and the drive

From the eror it seems as your OS isn’t always loading cdrom.sys .

You might try these two things .
First run a "chkdsk"
If you don’t know how to do that I can give instructions .
If that fixes the problem your good to go.

If not watch the harddrive activity light if you have one.
This assumes you use a log on password .
Watch for activity for 5 minutes or so.
Especially the first time you do this.
If you see a lot of activity after a couple of minutes this is drivers loading.
Wait till you see little or no activity.
Then enter your password & finish the boot.

If after trying the 'slow" boot several times your drive is always detected you may just need to boot your computer this way.

hi

First run a "chkdsk"
i did with all my hard disk no errors

i changed this key
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\cdrom]
“Start”=dword:00000001 to 3
i don’t get this error
but again the drive is sometime not detected by windows

This assumes you use a log on password .

i don’t but i will add a password so i can watch

but is there an utility like process monitor?
