Under " System Tasks", clicking "Eject the disk" does NOT cause the Cd-Rom Disk drive to open and eject the disk previously written to.

Manually pushing the Eject button does NOT eject disk.

Using Restart, and pressing Button DOES eject disk.

Info: Disk drive is LITEON DVD-ROM LTD163, (std CD-Rom ), "enabled and "working properly" according the Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager.
Windows XP Pro SP3 installed all MS updates installed. CD was written to by "copying files from one drive to the CD drive, closing the drive via [X]. Problem occurs repeatedly. CDs are readable after.

Short of re-installing Windows XP Pro, what corrective action is suggested. ????

Check to see if you have the latest firmware for the CD device from Lite-On's website first. If that doesn't fix it, then just have a paperclip ready for the manual opening of the drive. You can find a new drive for very cheap if its a mechanical issue. If you physically press the eject button down and it doesn't open, it sounds like its a hardware problem.

What other buring software is installed? Do you have Alcohol, Daemon Tools, WinIso, or similar programs that also use CD-ROM drivers?

Check the options in your other programs. All of those CD-ROM-related programs load drivers that influence the drive whether they are actually running or not. Uninstall any that you are not using and reboot.
