  1. Will the DVD drive crash when inserting a data CD? If not, could it be that the autoplay feature is trying to play the DVD and cannot find a proper DVD codec? Do you have any DVD player software installed? Have you tried uninstalling the drive and reinstalling via device manager? or disabling autoplay? Just guessing here. Good luck.
