I'm running Windows XP Professional SP2
The Drive is described in the device manager as HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8240B

The drive burns fine. The problem I'm having with it is if you put one cd in and then take it out. then put another cd in windows will not register that a new cd was put in. When you click on it from my computer it will display the files from the first cd put in the drive. A new cd can be read if you restart the computer. Then the same thing happens if you go to read another cd after.

Any suggestions...

Yes, the link solved my problem.

I would be nice if I didn't have to refresh everytime I put a new cd in, but at least it works.

Thanks for your help.

It's probably a bug somewhere in your registry. It's not a normal thing, but I have seen it occur and I guess it's "normal enough" that M$ has it posted in their KB. I have never experienced it on a fresh install of XP, so something is certainly corrupted somewhere.

Hi timetowaste...

Download and install Autoplay Repair Wizard from Microsoft. See if this resolves the issue.
