Strange cdrom error

  [DELETED] 21:31 19 Dec 2003

When i put any cdrom in the drive. I have a strange problem the cdrom is not found. It just shows me what was in there the time before. Have tried refresh cd rom and f5 to no avail. The only way i can get another cdrom to work is by restarting the computer. Using windows xp

does it do this with any cd or just one particular disc?

i have heard of cds not being recognised but never heard of a drive showing previous cd info before.

can only suggest you try all the usual: windows update click here or try uninstalling your drive via device manager and restart the computer,windows will reinstall the correct drivers for it again.

try updating your motherboard ide/chipset drivers too from the mobo manufacturers website.

try flashing the cd drive firmware as a last resort click here
