So I bought this new drive since my old CD-R drive didnt ever work. I had it installed and rebooted, xp recognized the new software and aside from the disc tray occasionally jamming it burns cds fine. The problem is that every time I burn a cd the drive in the my computer screen goes from cd-r drive to cd-drive and wont let me burn another disc unless i restart the whole system.
Windows said my drivers are up to date on the hardware and I dont know what else to do!

the following link to microsoft help might provide an answer., although the problem described there is not exactly like yours. Do you have more than one CD device installed and/or is the cd device shown in device manager the correct one for your system?
