After I have copied data to a disc using the DVDRW,and ejected the disc.The drive still states the disc is present.

When you right click the drive,and check properties.It gives you all the info regarding the disc,used space free space.But the drive is empty???.
Any ideas please.Thanks

*Raven*,and many thanks for the link.Cheers...

I think its time to update some of my PC's drivers which are out dated.
Is there any software which scans the PC and identifies out dated drivers,and where to download the newer one's????

Try this Before you take the disc out of the drive, In Windows Explorer or go through My Computer and click on another drive to show the contents of that drive then take the disc out of the drive.
