Summary

More Information

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

After you apply this update, you can configure the CD drive polling time by using the CDROMPollFrequency registry entry. This entry is located under the following registry subkey:

Note The default value of the CDROMPollFrequency entry is 0x7D0. This equals 2 seconds. Additionally, you can configure the registry in the "[Installation Directory]\public\COMMON\oak\files\common.reg" file.
