I changed to Windows 2000 Pro recently, and I’m very happy with it, but there’s one really annoying bug involving CD-ROM drives: sometimes, usually after having uninstalled a program or burned a CD, it doesn’t mount inserted discs anymore (i.e. doubleclicking on the drive icon shows me a “please insert a disk into drive x:”). :mad: :mad:
To fix it I have to log out and back on, but in case I need to access a DirectCD volume I must restart. This is making me very upset because I have always something running in the background from morning till evening (edonkey, flask, lame ) and I hate either stopping them or going on without cds!
The weird thing is that while Windoze doesn’t access the inserted discs, other software like Nero or Plextools correctly display the kind, size, label, type, ISRC, # of tracks… EVERYTHING!
I have Plextor SCSI CDROM and CDRW but this is not a SCSI issue because it happens also on my Nec ATAPI DVD drive.
I found nothing about it in the microsoft knowledge base, and don’t know if it’s a sp2 issue (never used win2k before… sp2 was already out). It also happens to a couple friends of mine, so I think it’s a win2k bug… or maybe I’m using some software combo that ain’t good
Some useful specs:
TB800 - VIA KT133/686b - 4in1 4.37 - DirectCD3.05, Nero 184.108.40.206
I really need some help or I’ll go nuts… Anyone out there has getting this same probem?
Thanks in advance
