    Default CD DRIVES WILL NOT "DUMP" LAST CD


    Greetings.
    When I insert any type of CD in either of my CD Drives, it will display the icon for that particular disk, but when it is ejected, the icon does not disappear. When a new CD is installed, the old CD icon remains. If I double-click, the icon, the CD ROM drive acts as if the previous CD is still in the Drive. The new CD does not appear.

    I tried changing the cables, and I triple checked my drive jumpers. I also uninstalled both drivers several times. My motherboard is an ASUS P4R800V with 512 Meg ram and a P4 2.8 gig processor. I am running XP with SP2.
    The following is a reply to my submission from another newsgroup:
    >
    > "If your cd drive is CDRW and you have easy cd creator or

    this is quite a common error, I dont know why microsoft dun fix it in their releases lol

    what you need to do is a possible two things:

    First, Run this application.

    The Microsoft AutoPlay Repair Wizard scans your computer devices to find defective AutoPlay settings, and attempts to fix those it finds. <NOBR>Download</NOBR> the Autofix utility from here:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/3/2/2326455e-a840-4c61-bc28-3afa1820b240/AutoFix.exe

    And second, for your incorrect contents of the CD drive XP problem

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314939
    Incorrect Contents Are Displayed in Windows Explorer

    If you run the first application, it should fix the autoplay ( CD drive icon etc.. ) and the second resolution should make sure the CD contents refresh too.

    Dude!
    You guys are awsome!
    The first utility worked as advertised. I did not even have to use the other one.
    Thank you very much for the prompt and timely reply (and fix!). God bless you!

    I have a similar problem as well. Neither my disc drives or my virtual drives are showing up anywhere on my computer except in device manager and computer management. I tried the auto repair wizard, but the disc drives dont even show up in there. A few days ago i was able to fix the problem by going into device manager, disabling all the drives, then enabling them again. But this does not work anymore. Can anyone help me out?
