XP does not detect CDROM disc change

By Tannerdog ·
I have 2 systems kicking my butt with this problem. When you manually eject a CD, such as to put disk 2 in for a game, XP does not recognize the disk has changed. If I right click and select eject, it does see the change, but only then. The two systems are an AMD 2400+ clone board and a Dell inspirion 4100 laptop. Any Ideas?

well, is it recognising cd changes other than these certain game installations? if so, make sure you are logging on with an account that has administrator rights--blurb follows---

When you attempt to install, remove, or play a game, you may receive the following error message:

Please insert the correct CD-ROM, select OK and restart the program.
This behavior can occur because you do not have the proper user rights. The game may use the SafeDisc protection system that requires you to be an administrator if you want to install, remove, or play the game.
To resolve this problem, change your user rights from "Limited User" to "Computer Administrator":

Sorry, not that simple. There is currently only one account on the systems and it is set to administrator. Thanks, but no cigar on this one.
