The problem is my DVD burner/drive freezes my computer after inserting discs.
Basically, it works when I'm using only 1 disc, for example burning a CD or DVD or just reading from one disc. But the problem begins when I use multiple discs or disc swapping. For example, I'm trying to load the game Rise of Legends and it has 4 discs. I am able to insert disc 1 and the drive will read it and begin the install. But when it asks for disc 2, I put it in, wait a few seconds for it to read, click okay, then it seems to run for a bit and then just locks up the computer. No mouse, no CTRL-ALT-Delete, nothing - completely freezes the computer. I have to power off the computer and restart again.
Here is what I have done. I replaced the drive with a new one. My old drive was and IDE- LG. The new drive is a SATA by Liteon. I have run virus scanner, reg cure etc and no problems found.
Here is my system:
Box: HP Pavillion
OS: XP - pro (It came with Vista but I switched back to XP)
CPU: Intel core 2 - 6300 @ 1.86GHz
RAM: 2 gb
Bios: Phoenix Award Bios V6.00PG
Display: Nvidia GeForce 7300GS (512mb)
Sound: realtek audio (on board)
DVD burner: Liteon (Atapi iHAS124)
I also noticed in my system information I have a lot of removeable drives for some reason ie: e, f, g, and h. I'm not sure if that's normal. I also have a drive I (CD-rom disc) which probably shows up because of Daemon Tools, although DT is not running in the background.
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
