Just opened, out of the box a new workstation and getting it ready for production.     However, when I go the My Computer (after installing a disc I need to use) and click on that drive.   Instead of opening the contents, it pops open the disc tray.

What should I check???

What was the program you installed?  My computer opens the content of the hard drive on any computer I have used. So then did the program you installed play with drive letters?

Shut the computer all the way off and restart. Does that repair the association?

Duhhhhhhh.....   Yes the restart did.      I could kick myself.     That is always top of my list to try first.

So did the restart fix the issue? Or are you still having problems?  If the latter case, please let us know about our suggestions.

Yes, the restart did fix it.    Sorry for taking up time on something I should have tried in the first place.
