Is there a possibility to tell W2K to unlock a drive (except rebooting) ?
DVD Ram drive in W2K.
Automatic process burned a new session of a multisession DVD and hung up.
Process was terminated.
DVD drive LED is still blinking and DVD drive can not be opened.
Unlocked tray mechanically and removed DVD.
Nevertheless W2K thinks the DVD still there.
The root directories on the DVD are still shown. When I try to open one of these directories a message appears, something like "please insert a disk".
This message appears even if a new disk is inserted.
DVD burn program cannot access the drive.
I know that a reboot would fix it, but this is a server which should not be booted at all.
Is there another way to solve this problem? Some way to reset the drive?
