    .....I turn to anyone of you, that may have any sugestions on how to fix my problem....

    The thing is.....my pc freezes when I insert a cd in my drive, and I have to reboot...

    I've tested about 5 cd/dvd drives.....but still the same....

    So I think it's in the XP...

    I think I've tested all posible sulutions....but no luck =(

    * Re-Installed XP
    * Changed cd/dvd readers
    * Changed medias (EVEN! reatail cd's - no change)
    ...etc.

    BUT!....sometimes some cd's work....(getting crazy)

    PLEASE HELP!

    :confused:

    hmm try using a different IDE cable. ie: try using one from HD to CD and the other from HD to CD, if this is the way its configured now, try one cable for HD's and another cable for CD's good luck thats the only thing i can think of

    CD-R's....and retail audio cd's

    This started to happen long time ago...when I inserted a blank cd-r to try out the built-in burn program in XP.....
