Several months ago i installed CloneCD on my WinXP Home system.
at the end of the trial, i uninstalled it, but found that my media players could no longer access my cd-rom drives to play audio cd’s.
i re-installed the app and all was well again.
i tried re-uninstalling the other day and used Registry First Aid to clear
all traces of the app ( there were nearly 60 references remaining- some of
which i had to alter permissions for, before i could remove them), but to no
i get a message from my Creative Media player saying that another process is
holding on to the drive.
windows media player can’t find the path to the cda on the disc
nero media player can’t open the cd-rom
however, the players detect the cd audio and list the tracks.
i can still play dvd’s on the dvd rom and burn cd’s on the cd writer, but
neither will play audio.
does anyone have any idea what may be locking up my drive in this way?
i’d be grateful for any snippets of knowledge you may have on this topic.
