Computer freezes the second time I insert a disc.

  barkley 20:04 31 Dec 04

I am currently having huge problems with my DVD-RW/CD-RW Disc Drive. When I insert a CD or a DVD into the disc drive the first time after my computer has been turned on, everything works fine. Then when I put another disc into it later, the whole computer freezes and nothing works including the mouse, keyboard, clock, ctrl+alt+del, etc. The only thing I can do is turn the pc off by holding down the power button for 8 seconds. I have already tried reinstalling the drivers for the disc drive. I don't know what to do. Can someone please help?

Hi, sounds very much as if you have a loose connection/connections somewhere - could be anywhere. I would advise a thorough check of all connections inside and out! I am sure there will be other suggestions forthcoming as well.
Good luck and Happy New Year.

btw - what sort of mouse do you have - if it is wireless, this would be the first suspect device.

I think you are having a problem with windows, the drive may be still looking for info of the old drive. try taking the first disc out and after a while put the same disc back in to see if it still freezes

Thought I would let you all know what the problem turned out to be and how I resolved it.

In the end I uninstalled the Nero 6.0 software and restarted the machine. The problems disappeared, so I resinstalled each element of Nero that I needed and restarted and tested between each install.

The problem has not returned. (fingers crossed!)

Thanks for all your suggestions.
