It's very unlikely that Cygwin is directly affecting your CDROM access but,
of course, given the information in your report, it's not possible to 
be more specific in response.  My suggestion would be, if you can't determine 
what else is responsible for the trouble you see, to uninstall Cygwin and see 
if it makes a difference.  I expect it won't.  If by some strange coincidence 
it does, you can reinstall Cygwin and perhaps try debugging the process that 
gives you this result.  No one else has reported such behavior so if it's a 
bug in Cygwin that you'd like to see fixed, we'll need your input to do so.
