CDRW wont eject after running a while

By Casemaker ·
Hi, Running win 98. This has happened to me with two different cdrw. One a 16x10x40 Teac and the other Acer 8x4x32. The problem is this , the cdrw wont eject the disk after using it. the system needs a reboot in order to eject the disk. Has anyone run into this and if so what is the cure. The Teac system runs on a Pentium II 300 with 96 MB Ram and 10GB HDD. The Acer is runs onn a Celeron 400 96MB RAM 6GB HDD.
Thanks

I ran into this problem and it was the firmware on the CDRW...make sure you have the latest drivers for the device and the firmware is updated...


Good Luck!

Sometimes this can be as simple as closing the CDRW software and using Explorer to do the eject.

Open My Computer, Right Click on the CDRW and select 'Eject'.

That's how my CDRW behaves

Almost all CD-R/w will have this problem you have to use the software for the burner to unlock and eject the media if it is rewriteable, its a saftey feature so you dont accidently eject while using the RW media to back-up unattended or soemthing of the like. Standard CD-R media will eject with out this locking feature. See also Help files included with burner software.
