Since my upgrade from ME to XP, I've found that my DVD-Drive no longer ejects CDs when I press the open/close button on the actual drive. When I try to do that, the CD will slow down, as if to prepare to eject, but then speeds up again.
I've found the only way to eject it is to via My Computer (right click on drive and eject).
I've tried reinstalling the drivers, but by deleting the drivers and then letting XP find the drivers. I've been told unplugging the DVD-drive will help reinstall the drivers from XP's own driver database. Is there any truth in this?
some programs require a restart and will tell you so.no after installing manually you dont need to restart but if you remove the drive in device manager then when you restart it will reinstall and windows will select the drivers.xp might have drivers for the dvd try it without having the disc in and see if the drivers it selects work instead of of the disc.
