Really strange issue. Windows XP, SP3 , 2GB ram, Samsung spinwriter internal dvdrw, dual layer. Burning software Nero 7.

In Windows Explorer, MY Computer, shows dvd drive (E). I insert a disk, say Cloverfield DVD Movie, it shows up, and plays through Nero showtime. Then when I eject disk from dvd drive (E), in Explorer, My Computer it shows as DVD-RAM Drive E, (empty). Now say I insert Terminator 3 into the same drive, It will spin up and still in my computer shows up as Cloverfield, not Terminator 3. I cannot play the disk. If I put a blank disk in to the burner, it still shows up as Cloverfield. I have tried to refresh "My Computer" and still doesn't cure the problem. I have loaded new firmware for the DRIVE and still the issue remains. The only way I can get the correct disk to show up is to reboot the computer with the disk into the drive.

Any suggestions on how to rectify this? Thanks.
