Hi, This is quite weird so I will do my best to explain whats happenning. I have a microstar computer and am running win. xp home. I have a dvd drive and a cd/rw drive. If I try and open the cd rw draw using the button on the front it won't open and I have to resort to using a pin. However once there is a cd actually in the draw if I press the button it will then open!!...I am using Nero ahead to copy cds and I have tried using the eject option within that programme, this works with the dvd draw (empty or with CD inside) but not with the cd draw, unless again, there is a cd in the draw. The same goes with the "discard" function. Basically I want it to open by just preesing the button on the front and not having to use a pin, the mecanism must be working because as I said once a cd is in the draw it will open just by using the button????? any suggestions......Thanks in advance
The only driver required by CD/DVD-ROM drives and rewriters is the basic Windows CDROM driver.
As you have Nero you will be aware that it controls the operation of the drive(s); copy a disk in the CD-ROM drive and it will eject it on conclusion and the rewriter drive will then open to allow media to be inserted if you have not already done so. When the burning has been completed, the rewriter's drawer then opens.
This is the reason why it is normally recommended that Auto Insert Notification or AutoPlay (XP) is disabled.
