    When i try to run anything from my cd drive, i get "The application
    failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006). Click on OK to terminate
    the application". The strangest thing is, it installed the os just fine
    about an hour ago. Im running the MSDNAA version of windows XP SP2 and
    i am using LITE-ON 16X DVD±R DVD Burner Black ATAPI/E-IDE Model
    SHW-160P6S-04 for my cd/dvd drive. Is this a problem with windows xp or
    do i simply have a drive that coincidentally went bad right after xp
    install?
