disappearing CD data (NOT CD-ROM letter!)

On my Win2K SP4 after some time my IDE CD-ROM (CD-Recorder actually) stops
reading data. Like if there is no CD in the drive. I thought that my CD is
dying, but then I discovered that:
1. It does NOT happen with same CDs and drive under Win98!! They work even
after few hours (well - like they should).
2. Audio CDs do work all the time. Not only they play correctly (I know that
computer isn't "needed" for them) :) ..but their TOC is read correctly (for
cddb/freedb checking).
3. Later I installed another old CD recorder - this one on SCSI...and same
thing! The times varied but in both cases the effect is like the CD is
unreadable or the drive is dying...

ANY ideas?
(machine is checked for spyware & viruses, has all updates, etc...)

I have a toshiba satellite 105 laptop computer that I bought in Decenber with 
windows XP and I was running office 2003 stuent and teacher edition on it, 
but after I installed the vista home premium upgrade as a full installation, 
I can not get the CD drive to read the CD rom.  I can not even see it with 
windows explorer.  I was forced to load up an old office 97 cd just to have 
word to use, but it is not what I want out of word.  Please help me find a 
way to get this DVD-Rom/ DVD-Ram drive to read this CD rom so I can use this 
software that I purchased to use on this laptop.


2.imapi keeps disabling, CD-Rom not reading blank CD's

My CD-Rom won't acknowledge that I have a blank CD in it. It runs program 
CD's fine. After reading previous questions, I checked to see if imapi was 
started. It was not, so I started it. However, everytime I put in a blank CD, 
imapi disables again. I don't have any other CD burning software installed. 
Please help!
