My pc with xp has an annoying habit. If i have a disc in my cd drive it shows up on my explorer correctly. When i open the drive to remove the cd it to changes to show just the drive, but when i put a new disc in it still shows the old one. f5 a few times sometimes works else its a restart.
Have a similar problem with both drives on my Advent T9202. Often when you put in a disc the drives whirrs for a few seconds then the whole computer just freezes and has to be switched off and rebooted. Tried Autofix which seems to work for a while. Also tried uninstalling both drives on the Hardware page and rebooting which again had limited success.Took off the side and reseated all the cable connections. This seems to have had the most success with only one lock-up this week, so it seems that this is where the problem is coming from.
