CD Rom



I have an ACER 56X Cdrom (which is not on the HCL) My problem is that the CD Rom does not recognize a CD Eject. If I eject a cd, then stick in a new one (like in a game installation) the CD Rom still thinks the old one is in. I have to eject the cd, close the tray and let the CD Rom reset, then open the CD Rom and put the next one in. Any ideas? Also I have the latest firmware update.

i used to get that problem with floppies in the times of using dos to format for win98 for instance
never found out wha tthe heck caused it
but try taking the cdrom off device manager then rebooting and letting it read
the cdrom is highly doubtful on the HCL... cdroms are cdroms


I had the same Acer Drive

I had the Acer CD-656A drive in my computer with Windows XP it did the same thing not releasing the old contents of the drive I talked to acer and they said to try to update the firmware. Did that but nothing changed thay said that XP is touchy with CDrom's so I took out that drive and put a different one in and works alot better.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
