I'm having a weird problem with my DVD burner. Every once in a while, I make movies (with Pinnacle Studio Plus) and burn them to a DVD-R or DVD+R-DL with my HP DVD Writer 640c. Sometimes, the burn stops mid-way through and never completes. The activity light even continues to blink. The software has a button to cancel, but when I click it, it's unable to. The program then freezes up. I have to reboot if I want to use the drive again.
Is there any way to "reboot" the DVD drive so that I can use it again without having to shutdown Windows? BTW, I'm using a Gateway with XP Pro SP1 and have 1.5 GB of RAM. Thanks.
