    I am using XP SP3 and have two DVD/CD drives installed, One is a Combo48 and the other a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-109.
    They both used to work as required however now whenever I get to the "BURN" stage when i want to put photos etc on a disc and click on "BURN" my computer uses that to restart the computer . It makes no difference which software I use . One thing ,they both will copy an existing DVD/CD file from another DVD/CD,
    The second problem i am having with the same drives is that after i have finished working with a disc (eg --i have opened a free software disc from a PC magazine ,downloaded a setup, and then closed the drive and removed the disc) the next disc i put in shows it has the same contents as the one i removed . I have to restart the computer to clear the disc contents info. My computer tells me that there is nothing wrong with my drives and they are working properly .Can anyone help
