    Browsing CD Contents from Explorer

    I have XP Pro set up on my computer at home. Using my login I can browse CDs like any other disk, but my sons account wont allow him to do the same. Using the folder view, if I click on the CDROM drive, the focus immediately changes back to the C: drive.

    Its probably a setting he's inadvertantly changed ... but which one? Any ideas???

    Re: Browsing CD Contents from Explorer

    I'm not entirely clear on what is happening with your son's profile, so let me ask a few questions instead.

    If you highlight My Computer in the left-hand pane of Explorer, and then double click on the CD icon on the right,does anything happen - anything different, or does it also show you the contents of the C: drive?

    Also, is your son a standard user or an administrator? Try chaging his account type and see what happens. I'm not entirely impressed with the default user settings in XP. Something to try anyway.

    Hi Mark,
    My son has an admin account, since he uses it most, and yes the highlight moves straight back to the C drive. I am not sure if his account has always had this failing because he tends not to browse the CDs, just install allowing an auto startup to occur.
