    CDRom/CDRW problems

    I've just noticed this suddenly happening on my computer (Windows 2000).

    Anytime I put a CD into the CDrom or CDRW drive, and then replace it with another CD, the computer doesn't recognize that I put the new CD in, on either drive. It still says that the old CD is in there and that the drive was altered or there is an incorrect function..blah blah. But I have to reboot every time I change a CD so that the computer will recognize the new one!

    What can I do to fix this? I have no idea if I have autorun enabled, or if that would help..I'm getting really tired of rebooting, so any suggestions would be very appreciated.

    You can always try and find a program called tweakui for 2000. It allows a lot of custom settings in win2000.

    If you get it (sorry don't remember where) go to the paranoid section. At the bottom it should have two options

    Play audio cds automatically
    play data cd's automatically

    Tweak ui lets you control everything to the fade speed of your menus to What options are in your 'new' menu.

    Give it a shot.
