  hspurs 10:10 11 Dec 2003

I seem to be having avery strange problem with my cd writer and cdrom. When i try to install any software which is more than one cd.
The first cd installS fine when i put the second one in its not recconised. If i use my computer to explore the cd it still shows me the contents of the first cd, even if i use refresh it still shows the contents of the first cd.Has anyone else had this problem and can help.
I am using windows xp.

Is this more than one software? Is it possible you have two copies of disc 1?

This does occasionally happen after removing the first CD or any CD for that matter - the disk's contents information is still detailed in My Computer.

I find that by opening My Computer again and then clicking on D (if this is your CD-ROM drive) that it will then recognise the second disk's contents.

No its not the same copy of disc 1. I have tried several of my sons games as well. all with the same problem.
