Please help:The last couple of days my CD's will not eject from the drive and am having to resort switching the computer off, then restarting it just to get the thing out.Have tried pressing the eject buttton on the casing, ejecting it from Explorer, task manager - to no avail.The CD is actually being constantly read (I can hear the motor running)and the fault effects all kinds of content - adobe, work documents etc.Nothing is listed in Device manager to hint at a problem.(Windows XP)
This can happen if you ejected or switched the comp. off whilst the drive was busy. The quickest solution would be System Restore.
I initialy though that that may have been the problem, but every CD since is acting in the same way even after closing the particular programme correctly.Am I to assume from your reply that you think this is a software issue as opposed to the drive itself being faulty?
Have you deleting the drive from the device manager then rebooting? The PC will find the drive again.
Difficult to say which, as Ironman556, try deleting the drive and let windows find it again.
Thank you both. Will try as you suggest when I get home.
Another possibility: an anti-virus program is scanning the disc.
