Nero Burning ROM crashed during burning and now my DVD drive is unusable. I cannot open the drive, I cannot shut down the computer because it says "Waiting for DVD Drive D:" and the drive runs like it is still burning despite the program doing the burning is no longer open. It isn't even in any process. What can I do to make the drive stop?

Go to Task Manager...shut the system down from there.


Turn system off....hard shutdown if necessary...disconnect the optical drive.


Sounds to me like it's a hardware problem moreso than a software problem if you cannot manually open the drive.
