Hi I have a LG DVD Writer GSA-H10L , it frequently locks up my system as soon as it accesses a dvd or cd, i have updated the firmware to the latest version still no improvement, it sometimes just does not pick up in the bios. it cheap enough to just replace, would just be interesting to know if other guys have the same problem

I would go ahead and replace it regardless. Looks to be something wrong with it, I have never had issues with optical drives.
re install your OS or recently added new hardware like Graphics card etc. You can try with another optical drive also.
