2. Click the HARDWARE tab.


4. Click the plus (+) to the left of DVD / CD-ROM DEVICES and double-click your CD-ROM drive. Note you can also right click and select Properties.



6. Click OK

Repeat steps 4-6 for any other ROM drives listed in Device Manager.

Note you may need to reboot your computer for the change to take effect.

At this point CD digital audio extraction should be enable and you do not need to have the CD audio cable connected between your ROM drive and sound card. Note if you have an older computer (CPU under 1G) then you may need to have CD digital audio extraction turned off because your computer may not be able to handle the data from the CD on the system bus.

Genius tablet 8x6 with mousepen

I had a similar problem myself, this is due to temp files which are extracted during an installation. What happened is that a program extracted a setup file that was Read only into the temp directory. and that this file could not be overwritten or deleted, by the system (as it should be able to. to fix look in your temp directories to find this bogus setup file, when you find it delete it.
