Access to CD from guest account

Specs: Windows XP
Hi everyone,

On Windows XP Pro, I can't access to CDrom with the guest account if another user already has a session opened.

If noone has a session opened, I can acess to CDrom from the guest account without any problems.

But if another user already has a session opened, the guest account can't do anything with CDroms. Windows prompts 'acess refused' when trying to open a CD. If I try to use for instance CDex, I get this message: 'Native NTSCSI library support not supported by this operating system. You have to install ASPI drivers in order to use CDex". CDex then launchs but doesn't display any CDrom in his list.

FYI, the strategy of local security only allows acess to CDrom to locally connected users (as necessary for using CDex from the guest account).

Does anyone have any ideas to solve the issue? (without giving up the guest account).

Thanks in advance.

Thanks John, but my problem seems to have nothing to do with users' rights management. Indeed, I have no problem whatsoever doing what I want with the guest account if no other session is opened.
But if another user already has a session opened, the guest account can't access CD readers. Doesn't change anything to run CDex as an administrator: I get the same message (native nt scsi...etc.).

So I guess the issue is more related to drivers loading. Maybe CD readers drivers can't be loaded by two users at the same time?
