    I had this problem on my last pc, whenever i close the DVD with or without disk it craps out my pc for up to 10 seconds, then all is ok. I know this is somthing to do with IDE drivers, and i have just upgraded to the epox 8k3a+ board, I also installed the XP ATA 133 drivers as i got a maxtor ata133 40 gig strapped in. I run HDD & CDRW with no problems off IDE 1 and my cd rom and DVD from IDE 2. I just swopped the 40 cable for a 80 cable with just the DVD on and still get the same. I dont want to drop back to default IDE drivers and lose my ATA133, any ideas ?

    XP 1800 (not overclocked)
    2 x 256 PC 2100 RAM
    Epox 8K3A+

    I Installed the latest VIA 4 IN 1 Drivers as well.

    no. it's like this. I can install the via 4.38 drivers with no problems at all. but i need to install the via ide busmaster 3.01.4 for xp if i want the ata133 with XP. there is a 133 install with the 4 in 1 but it doesnt enable ata133. soon as i install the ata133 driver mr DVD craps out on me :( cant find refrence to it on via or epox site :( dunno if theres an update and i aint sure were to look :(

    could this be the fact my cd rom and dvd only support up to multiword dma and not ultra dma ? is it only cd rw's that support ultra dma ? as my cd rw runs ultra dma 2. they did come from a shop thats renound for selling crap, any answers anyone ?
