Can not read DVD/CD in Windows Explorer - OK in Command Window

My CD/DVD s in the Optiarc DVD RW AD-5170A refuses to refresh in Windows
Explorer.
Listing the drive in Command Window works perfect.
If the CD/DVD is in the drive when booting it comes up in Windows Explorer
as well.

I have been searching the net for a fix, but so far .. no luck..

Can anyone give me a pointer to find a fix?
OR as a temp fix - a way to force a refresh of the Windows Explorer CD/DVD
window..

RE: Can not read DVD/CD in Windows Explorer - OK in Command Window
As a temporary fix I have opened explorer, right click on the cd drive icon,
and select 'EJECT'. I then push the tray back in and Explorer refreshes with
the right cd contents. I'm also looking for a permanent fix. If anyone
finds one, please let me know too!
