Windows 7: Access denied on dvd drive

Access denied on dvd drive

Just started - upon clicking dvd drive, message says "may not have permission."

I can right click and open and play the movie, so drive is operable.

I went into registry and followed directions to delete lower filter. - no change.

I checked permissions and that is OK as well.

I also uninstalled drive and rebooted.

Also did a System Restore.

Also ran scan -- SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

It seems to be caused by message "files ready to be written, but I can't seem to delete it.


Since I can play dvds, it's not a big problem, but I would like to know why this has suddenly happened and how to correct it.

Thanks,

Paul

Tried that long ago - no such message on page.

Changed permissions and that message is now gone.

As Family Feud says : Great answer!!



Although this seems like a temporary problem, I can open the dvd -this is the Harem Tour Concert-one of the greatest I have ever watched- watching her perform Nessun Dorma is thrilling.
Much better than that Rap Crap!!


I changed the permissions and now the "no permissions" message is gone, but a new one has taken its place -

Not sure what it means since I have set VLC as default.

I followed Microsoft directions to correct this, but no change.

Where did you get the DVD from?
Did you or a friend make the DVD?
Do other DVD work properly?

It's my own dvd. (my own copy)

Doesn't matter what dvd I insert - store-bought or not - same message appears.

Doesn't happen on my laptop and never happened before on the PC either.

Can you change the default to Windows Media Player and see if it works?

Already tried that - changed it to every player I have.

I haven't done a fresh install in over three years and will be doing one soon - that'll show 'em.!!
