Drive Icon

Ocasionally in my computer the icon for my DVD writer changes to the icon for CD-r or CD. Now the device still works OK but it is very annoying, does anyone know why this should change of its own free will?

Thanks for your help,

When this happens does the drive contain a a cd-r or a cd? If so it could just be a reflection of the media currently seen by the drive.

you could be right however it seems to stay that way until a reboot

If the Icon remails the same as the media then put your pointer on the icon to hilight it then press F5 to refresh it and the icon will change back.
