For some reason when i change CD/DVD's My Computer does not recognizing the media change and lists the previous contents until the window is refreshed by pressing F5 or View->Refresh.

Is there a fix?

Hi Martina

This was a problem in Windows XP that was (supposed to be) fixed in a Service Pack [I can't remember if it was Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2]. If your computer hasn't the latest Service Pack installed on it, make sure to visit Windows Update & grab that, plus the 40 or so Updates that have been issued since SP2 was first released. SP2 is a very large update = if you access the Internet by dialup, see if a kind friend can download SP2, and many of the updates since, for you = and burn them onto a CD. It will save a great deal of time.

SP2 direct download --- http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...BE-3B8E-4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en
2006 .iso images of updates --- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/913086

If the computer is already up-to-date on patches, let us know.

Best of luck
