dvd drive remembers previous disc

when i remove a disc from my dvd drive and insert a new one on my laptop. the computer still remembers the previous disc. the only way to get it to read the disc is to keep the new disc in the drive and restart the computer. i am running windows xp.

one of the foibles of windows they never cured it. even when you press refresh. switch Win Explorer of back on and it will be gone
