    then after that i change the CDs place...
    but the icon for Photoshop is stuck at DVD drive even though prnter driver CD is inside it and vice versa
    it only happens to the two stated CDs though

    nvm, fixed after restart today


    and it started again this time the other way round
    the icon for the printer driver is on the DVD drive when Photoshop icon is supposed to be there and vice versa
    and as usual this only affects the two CDs

    That's a strange problem Zhang. Try removing the CDs and rebuilding the icon cache to see if it helps any.

    Re: Drive Icon Problem

    looks like more problems started
    the CD drive now normally disappears into oblivion, it does not show up in my computer and doesn't react to anything inserted but the drive is open-able (in the physical world)
    and i kills the electric supply to the CD drive !!!
    physical or virtual problem ?
    tried the icon rebuild but still not working
