Does anyone else have the following problem? It’s starting to go from annoying to really annoying.
When I drop a CD/DVD into my optical drive then have to switch discs for some reason (such as going to the next disc in a game installation process, or Iwant to burn a different music CD, etc.). Anyway, Windows refuses to “refresh” the contents of the CD, and it assumes that the old disc is still in the drive, so the install process will tell me to “insert disc 2” when disc 2 is already sitting in there. So I have to eject the disc and close the disc tray a couple of times before Windows realizes “hey, there’s a new CD in here instead of the one that was in there originally.”
I’ve tried firmware upgrades on my DVD-RW (TDK 880N), but no luck, and this is a problem in both Windows SP1 and SP2. I think it could be due to the 8MB cache in the drive itself.
Is there any way in the registry or something to tell Windows to fix this? Basically, if you put a disc into the optical drive, Windows should automatically assume it’s a “new” disc and read it as such.
