Problem when removing a CD while an application is running

Hi,

we have a strange issue with web start, when our application is launched with a CD in the CD drive and then remove the CD while the application is still running, we repeatedly get an error message about no cd found.

The only way to get rid of the message:

1. place a CD in there
2. Re-start the machine

Re-starting the appliction does not make any difference.

Anyone come across this and the work aorund.

Thanks

Faisal

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
