I've seen this happen quite often whenever Windows Explorer attempts to read a defective CD. No matter what version: win9x, win2000 or winxp.
My question is quite straightforward:
Why does it hang if it's supposed to be a simple error to handle?
If the CD is totally unreadable, it's ok. But if the CD is deffective but its files are listed and I attempt to open one of them, Explorer behaves erratically.
Opinions are welcome.
