Disc drives retaining picture of previous disc

Everytime I put a disc in any of my drives (DVDRW/DVDROM) it retains a picture of what was on the disc even after removing said disc. When a new disc is inserted, the drive won't read it until I restart the computer. Ocassionally, when I double click on the My Computer icon it kicks it into action. The autoplay are set and F5 doesn't work. (Using Windows XP) Can anyone help, please?

Instead of restarting try (in Explorer) View - Refresh
