    If I change the CD/DVD in my drive, it doesn't notice. Opening it just shows what was on the previous one.

    I've tried uninstalling them and letting XP refind them, which it does, but the problem persists.

    In W98SE, There was a "Remount" option, when right-xlixking on the relevant drive.

    A) Is there any way of getting this "Remount" thing for XP, like a DOS command, or summat?

    Or...

    B) Any ideas as to how this little quirk may be fixed?

    I used to have the same problem exactly. What worked for me was to turn autoplay back on. (It was disabled because I found it annoying).

    So do I! Worth a try, though.

    I'll give it a go and let you know how it goes.

    Ta!
