    Roxio Easy CD

    I am running Windows 98SE and using Easy CD Creator 5. Whenever I copy a file to a CD using DirectCD, or open a file on a CD created with DirectCD, I cannot eject the disk, either with software or with the button on the drive. What is causing this and how can I override it?

    Will it eject if you use a small probe such as a straightened paper clip inserted into the front of the drive? Look for a real small hole. That usually frees a "stuck" drawer.

    Not fully. The paperclip seems to slide past what it is supposed to activate and the drawer only opens a couple of millimetres. It is exceedingly hard to open completely. Rebooting Windows solves the problem and it will open normally again. That is, until I next save to the disk or open a file on it. Then we are back to not being able to eject again.

    Next I would try re-seating all the cables to ensure good connections before giving up on that drive.

    I suspect it is a software conflict somewhere. Have a look at this from experts-exchange - you may need to scroll down a lot - but there are a few suggestions.

    Are both Win98 & EZ CD Creator up-to-date with patches?
