Problem with CD/DVD Drive

Wonder if anyone can help me

having a slight problem with cd/dvd drive in my laptop :confused:

not got all the spec to hand but hope it is a problem that someone has experienced before

My system does not recognise when i put a new cd / dvd in the drive, it still shoes the info from the previous disc. The only way i can solve yhis is by rebooting the machine and then it recognises a new disc but when i put another one in after that i have to reboot again, bit of a bugger when trying to backup my system

any ideas :bow:

What is your O/S and if it’s xp did you update to sp2 with update and hotfixes? What kinda laptop do you have and what kinda drive is it? You gave very general information without much detail for the rest to read and diagnosis the problem.
