  1. Hi all,
    Just a niggly anoying prob here, in the 'My Computer' view my DVD/CD drive no longer refreshes or updates when new discs are put in. it used to do so, no idea why its changed. Basically it does not update the name of the disc in the drive, even if i refresh the view etc. it only tells me the name of the disc if it was in on boot-up. Any ideas why this may be? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    D.Nicholson

    sounds like a registery problem or your cds are scratched and not being recognized

    That si a common widows file problem. I used to have it happen all the time before SP2 since then I have not had the problem. What would SOMETIMES fix the problem would be to uninstall the IDe channel the drive is on and reboot. windows automatically reinstalls the ide channel and the drive on restart. this sometimes fixes the problem.
