CD rom spin up

By bnagy ·
Every day at exactly 4:22, both of the cd drives in my computer spin up for no apparent reason. We are on an all windows 2000 network (server & professional). Any idea what would cause this? Both drives are shared on the network and have cds in them, and are rarely used.

Sounds like someone has a scheduled task refering to files on your shared drives. What's on the CDs?

The CD contains nothing special. However that is irrelevant because a couple other users also have CD drives spinups at the same exact time. It has something to do with our network. What could trigger the spinup of CD rom drives of multiple users at exactly the same time?

Check your antivirus software to see what drives it is scanning. Perhaps the cd drive has been selected.
