Ok System stats

Win XP Pro SP 1
P4 2.0 GHZ
1 GB of DDR 333
ATI Radeon 9700 PRO
ASUS p4s533 MB
This setup has been working fine for 2+ years...
IDE 1
Maxtor 60 GB HD setup as MASTER
Maxtor 200 GB HD setup as slave

IDE 2
MEmorex DVD+RW Setup as MASTER
Unk brand CD+RW setup as SLAVE.

Ok, when ever I put a CD in, it refreshes it as LONG as its the first one since the first boot, if I take it out, and put another one in it still reads as the last one.

I've tried it with my BFV, gangland, Mohaa, Jurrassic park:Operation genesis, and many more. do you have any ideas on how to fix it?

PS. I have pressed f5 and refresh 1.5 billion times, I have reimaged, and done everything I can think of. It happens with both CD roms.

one is a Memorex DVD+R/CDRW, and the other is a CDRW. Any ideas?

Try closing Windows Explorer and then reload it AFTER you've put the second CD in.

When you say that you reimaged the drive i assume that you built this PC on your own.  If this is true then I would start from scratch.  Backup all data to the 200 GB drive and then format the 60 GB.  

You could make the case that you have a bad CD-ROM however you are having the same issue in both drives.  I have seen a CD-ROM go bad and lock up everything from the network connection to the OS itself and sometimes even reboot the PC sporadically.  If you have another CD-ROM handy try removing the current ones and using just the replacement.  If everything goes as planned then add them back in one at a time to test those drives.

Another point that leads me to believe that you need a fresh install is that it seems that you play quite a few games.  Generally, I have noticed in the past that games some times muck up the core of the OS and makes it give strange errors and behave oddly.

I hope that this helped.

Actually, Problem Solved.  The New Version of Daemon Tools, Allows me to not use a CD for my Legally purchased BF:V, screwed up the drives/cache, with its new version.  When I reimaged/restored the drive my dumb butt reinstalled it so I could play BF:V without the disk, and that is why.  Thanks for your help guys, but I just figured it out.
