Default Cd drives help

Hi everyone...well I have 2 cd/dvd drives in my computer and both of them have the same problems:

1. They don't autostart, I tried playing around with the autostart options, but they still won't work.

2. When I take a cd or dvd out of either one of the drives, it still says I have the cd in...I see it through my computer.

Can someone please help with these problems? Thank you very much.

Default Re: Cd drives help

I'd try a reinstall of the drivers.
