    Hi all ,
    Computer is a Dell E-510 running XP Media Center SP2:

    Lately I have noticed that when putting any CD or DVD in to my drive that after using it and ejecting the title of the disc still stays under my computer under D:\

    So say if I put in a movie ,"Dvd-Drive D:" ,under my computer turns into the title name after inserting the disc, in this example "Mr_Show_Season_3" after ejecting it should go back to
    "Dvd-Drive D:" However it does not. It still reads as the title of the DVD. Even if I put a new a CD or DVD in it will open the application to view the DVD that was previously in. I've never see n this before and tried to reinstall the drivers for the drive with no success. The only way the drive is usable is if I reboot and insert another disc. It's like the cache isn't clearing on the DVD-ROM, but since I'm not a harware guru I have no Idea.Thanks in advance.
