    I had this problem myself. I'm not sure exactly what the fix was because I did a few things. I flashed my bios to the most current revision, I installed the newest 4 in 1 drivers, and at one point I installed the mini-port drivers (the first time i tried the miniports it crashed me out and i had to use system restore - make a restore point if you need to go that far), and I have no idea if this helped at all, but i also updated the firmware in my burner and dvd roms. I'm running without the miniports now with no problems. I 'think' the thing that helped most was the 4 in 1's.

    Had the exact same problem with an early version of Nero and InCD that was not XP compatible. Uninstalled the software and installed a later version and it fixed it.
