CD/DVD Volume Label In Explorer



If I put a CD or DVD in my drive before I turn on my PC and go to Windows Explorer after start up then the drive and folder pane on the left shows the volumn name of the inserted disc. Any change such as putting in a new disk or putting in a disc after start up will always show as DVD/CD Drive(D:). It never seems to refresh the volume name. You can click on the drive and it will show the correct file and folder tree.

How can I get Explorer to refresh the volume name on a disc change? My operating system is Win XP Home SP2.

Thanks in advance for your help.




Neither F5 or the refresh icon makes a bit of difference. I seem to remember in Win95 an option for auto insert notification. Does XP have such an option?
