    I built an HTPC in August last year and it's been working ok since then apart from an odd DVD problem in Windows MCE.

    After playing a DVD and then ejecting it at the PC, MCE never seems to recognise the eject. Putting another DVD in and playing it will cause MCE to hang, forcing a restart.

    If I do a software eject sometimes it releases the DVD and will allow another to play.

    I was thinking that this might be due to the DVD drive (Pioneer DVR-111), but am loathe to replace it without a good reason.

    Anyone have experience of a problem like this?

    I'll bear that in mind, thanks.

    I have to reinstall MCE soon to install a new 250GB drive and RAID 0, so I'll see if that makes any difference.
