    windows explorer doesn't correctly display the title/label of either cds or dvds , sometimes a previous label is displayed regardless of file content, but mostly no label is displayed. The contaents are displayed ok.
    the following method will display the label correctly but does not alter win explorer display:
    right click on drive, select properties, select hardware, double click on appropriate drive then click on volumes, then click on populate. This method obviously proves that the information can be read by my system but I do not understand the explorer problem - any thoughts are wellcome please ?

    win xp sp2
    optorite drive dvd rw dd0203

    I've since resolved the problem by selecting autoplay for the cd/dvd drive, not ideal becauase I do not want to use the autoplay feature , but at least it solved the label problem

    Ralph ... that can be a drive going bad or you need to clean it... you may also want to make sure it's set to DMA and not PIO mode ...

    I have the same problem sometimes. There may be something you can do to fix it. I just ingnore it and go about my buisness and eventually the correct label is displayed. Just a bug in Windows I suppose... Imagine that:eek: :laugh: .
