    Open Explorer and see if you read the CD from there. If not then try the following link:

    Basically you search for and delete instances of the "lowerfilters" string in the Registry. It worked for me. I can't recall if I also had to delete "upperfilters" as well.

    Make sure you back up your registry first. It worked for me, but it can be risky.

    Seems a lot of folks have the same issues.
