Disk Utility Lockup

By mouav ·
My DVD, CD, & Floppy drives have been locked up. They are recognized but cannot be accesed. Scandisk replies by telling me that "a disk utility has locked up the drive" & it needs to be unlocked before it can be accessed???

you cant run disk utilities to read only media that dvd or cdrom devices.
Once an aplication locks a file (like wordpad or notepad), any disk utility will fail to open the same file, thus why scandisk many times run under dos, prior windows boot.
Hope it helps
