    I have this on my system and sometimes after either updating files on a CD or downloading something from a CD it won't let the drive open. You have to reboot and catch it as it is booting up. Is this a common problem? What is the suggestions?

    I have never had it happen on my machine, but I have at work. It was only one Cd that would make it happen, but it did it every time.
    Have you tried to "eject" through Windows Explorer?

    When it does this the only way to get it to open is to reboot and catch it as it boots.

    I have Cd Creator on my system and had similar problems in the past. Here's what I did.

    Go to Start>Run type msconfig and click OK. Then select the Startup tab.

    Deselect both AdaptecDirecCD and CreateCD50. This prevents the programs from starting up with windows. They can be launched from the Start> Programs menu when needed.

    Alternatively, when the lockup of the CD tray happens, just open DirecCD Format Utility (in the Start>Programs menu) and click the Eject button there.

    What have you tried, other than pushing the button?


    My Computer> Right click CD drive> choose Eject
