Unable to extract raw data from CD's

Somewhere along the way my PC decided it can;t extract raw data from CD’s.
If I use ANY CD ripper program I don’t get any ATAPI, SCSI or MSCDEX capable device available. It used to be fine. I tried three different CD Rom drives, and a CDRW and a DVD-RW, and all do the same. So it must be something in WindowsXP that has changed.

Has any recent WinXP patch done that? I can play the audio CDs, record CDR/DVDR, play DVD’s etc etc. Even still rip DVD’s fine. But not audio CD’s.

It has also very recently occured on my second PC too. Exact same problem. But as far as I can see I have not done a thing to it (any changes) of late. Bar windows updates now and then.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Tried a system restore yet?
