Windows 7 - DVD Drives: Something That Doesn't Hang Explorer?

Asked By (PeteCresswell) on 13-Aug-12 12:05 PM
Seems tb designed behavior that, when I insert a DVD into my
drive, Explorer comes to a halt until the system is happy with
the inserted DVD.

The Question:

Are there DVD drives/controllers available that somehow offload
whatever is hanging Explorer so that Explorer continues to
respond even while the DVD is being opened?

If so, what would I Google on?
