If only one CD drive is giving you trouble, with the other one working okay, it's possible the problem one is broken. Either that or the disc is bad and is causing the PC to crash. Try unblemished, unmarked commercial software discs in it. If it won't read those but the other drive will read them, I would be even more inclined to say you need to replace the drive or simply remove it and manage with just the other one.

Check your jumper setting, wrong settings can cause a conflict.
