    Here's what happens: Pop a cd into either of my drives, open windows explorer and view or copy files or whatever. Pop the CD out and a new one in, it still lists what was on the first one and throws errors when clicking on the (old) files listed. This happens even after F5-refreshing or exiting and restarting explorer, only a reboot seems to work to fix it. Then I'm good for exactly one CD..
    Device Manager doesn't seem to show any of the Sync, Disconnect, DMA etc stuff on the CD drives in win2k like '98 did, so I'm not sure where to proceed from here. BTW they have worked allright for nearly a year on my current win2k install, this is a fairly new problem.
    Any ideas? :confused:
