jPV replied: Could it be possible that you'd have accidently selected the "Put Away" option from the RMB context menu for the CD icon at some point? When you've tried to select "Eject" instead?
What a great bit of diagnosis of the issue - and - you were spot on - that was the issue ... I'd inadvertently "Put It Away" Quote:
jPV replied: The "Put Away" option would hide the icon from the desktop, but the CD would still be accessible elsewhere. For example, if it'd still show up in the "My MorphOS" device list, you could drag it back to the desktop to "put it back".
I've done just that, many thanks for working out my error . . . you the man Quote:
jPV replied: I've also had problems with aging CD-RW discs/drives, that for example my Mac mini doesn't recognize discs at all, but other machines will, or at least will but with some suspicious sounds/delay :) It has helped to switch to a fresh CD-RW...
I have a UJ-875 DVD-RW drive in mine, not quite the standard UJ-845/6 model, and it seems to work flawlessly for me - as long as I have my wide-awake head on, though I've had a hectic week, like most of you.
It seems it was basically all my error, and tiredness, many thanks to all for suggesting ways to fix my problems.
Apologies André, I am just too worn-out at the moment, and it was my fault - but thanks for being there.
Parcel2go website seemd to be getting further than it did. I've not organised a parcel as yet, but I got past the previous barrier to logging into the site to arrange an order. So things might be better with OWB v1.25
I have noticed that when OWB v1.25 starts up, and when a new page/site/bookmark is triggered, it seems to stall for SIX minutes
before you can use OWB.
By that, I mean if you try to visit any site, or use a link to access a webpage then OWB can become neutralised, along with MorphOS as well, until the process within OWB is completed, and that can be anything up to SIX minutes for each site you visit, surely that cannot be as intended, then I noticed the Page Cache
option in OWB's preferences - to bypass this issue.
I'm off to bed for some sleep, before I shoot myself in the foot again today.
