When windows 2000 came along these problems seemed to be solved....until a couple of days ago for me :/
I re-installed W2K on a "new-ish" computer using recent chipset / graphics / sound / etc.. drivers. only to notice that when an older CD or DVD is inserted, everything stops for a few moments, then picks up and repeats the process. Most of the times it comes to the point where I have to reset the computer (even CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't work).
This IS NOT related to windows changing transfer modes from UDMA -> PIO , since I checked and UDMA mode is set unchanged. What I'm fearing is it has something to do with NForce chipset drivers, but it's just a feeling.
Does anyone have any suggestions how to fix this or perhaps discover the culprit ?
(Also note that this situation might have been present before I noticed it, since it's not a habit of mine to test old media for readability.)

Thanks for any help
