    My Delll Inspiron Laptop w/WinXP Pro will not eject the CD tray.
    I can read the CD and use a pin to eject. In that case explorer doesn't recognize a new CD if I insert one.
    I uninstalled the CD and reinstalled it and it worked for a short period. It then behaved as described. I had this problem and got a new CD-RW/DVD and the problem persists. :confused:

    Do I have to reinstall WinXP??
