System etower c633cd, 256 meg memory, Lite-on LTR-16102b, LG dvd_rom 16102b, 100 USB Zip Drive

I have a strange problem that has occurred within the last weeks. My dvd drive is not behaving as it should. When a dvd data disk is inserted, on some occasions it will not read resulting in the loss of the icon in control panel. I have to keep rebooting till I can access the disk. I Also have problems lately with the Lite-on recorder (scsi and fixation errors). As I have indicated the problem started recently about the time I installed the Zip drive. Can anyone Help me with this problem.

Rule no. 1 for new problems ; if you recently installed any new hardware or software, and you get problems soon afterwards, guess where to look ? Have you tried un-installing the Zip drive and any associated software, then seeing if your previous setup performs ok ?

thanks for your response I have tracked down the prob. I was browsing the web and discovered that the intel accelerator has a few bugs, having installed this a few weeks ago it seemed a likely candidate so I uninstalled it, everything ok now.

kind regards
