Cannot eject CD/DVD


mossie

Question

Hi.

 

I have an unusual problem with Vista (Ultimate). First of all it won't allow me to eject discs from my DVD-R drives unless I go to Explorer, right-click the drive icon and select eject from the menu. After doing this if I insert a dvd it still shows up as the previous disc in Explorer. For instance one DVD is a game (Pro Evolution Soccer 6) when I eject this and insert a movie DVD Vista (and all my programs) still sees the game and won't play the DVD. I have two internal burners, an Optiarc (NEC) Ad-7170A, LG HL-DT-St DVDRAM GSA-H42N. I also have an External Philips SPD3100L. The problem seems mainly to affect the LG and the Philips. Also I have Autoplay turned on, but nothing autoplays..

 

I contacted MS Support and was told to uninstall EMC which I did. I can now eject the disks, and the disks update properly in explorer, but of course I can't use EMC. Any solution to this?

D2D sometimes 'locks' a drive but the basic problem seems to be that the drives are not refreshing…

 

After you install V9 have you gone back and removed D2D?

 

Normally I would suggest a firmware update for the drive, but it seems odd that 2 different drives would show the same symptoms???

MS support suggested removing Roxio, which I did, including D2D. This solved the eject issue, and the drives are refreshing OK now. Autoplay is still not working. I think it seems Easy Media Creator is nothing like ready for Vista, regardless of what Roxio say. Trying out Nero now, no problems yet.
