Basically i got a DVD burner ive been trying to burn DVD or CDR and i get super hard lock up especially when i burn DVD's. My comp just frezzes.. the mouse isnt moving the DVD drive is making noise but nothing is happening.
I usually end up restarting the system.... and the DVD is a coaster....
I use an original copy of ahead nero burning rom 7 full version.
that DVD drive in general ahs a hard time reading anything.... most of the time it just reboots teh computer....
Seeing how I just went through a week of trying to figure things out with my brothers DVD rom, may I suggest this; try using the same IDE cable that the master is on and switch your DVD rom to slave. That was the last step I did and the problems I had were fixed. Just make sure you get into Device Manager and delete the old setup and drivers first. Then do the cable and reboot/install the player.

could just be disfunctional.. exchange the drive...
what is the make and model of the drive?
Yeah agreed, I recently had the same problem after only 4 DVD burns. It would read for awhile but even that stopped after a week and would lock up entire PC causing me to power reset to recover. Sent the DVD writer back for a successfull warranty claim.
