I was checking thru my event logs and noticed an error happening every
day that says, "Iomega Activity Disk 2 Service System cannot find the file
specified" Could this be the reason my DVD drive no longer works? If not
what is this and how do I find out what file is missing. The same thing for
Disk 1 is working ok, but it doesn't make sense to me as the only thing I
thought was iomega was the zip drive which i don't have connected. it's a
portable zip drive. Internally I have a CDRW, a 31/2, and a DVD which as I
said is not working for some reason.

Maybe, but the error points to the ZIP drive rather. If you do no
longer have the Iomega software installed, disable the service in the
Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services and remove all
shortcuts that point to the software from your startup settings. Or
reinstall the software, if you still want to use the ZIP drive.
