DVD-ROM freezes PC but works in Safe Mode

for the cd issue...
The upper and lower filters are not in my registry.
this is probably the problem...try reinstalling roxio or whatever cd/burner program you have...
those filters put hooks into windows so the hardware can interact with windows...
they are removed when you uninstall roxio or itunes or other cd burning apps
I didn't read the whole thread (book)... .. but if you still have connection to the internet issues...try this...
TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.
For these commands click on Start.... Run..... type in...CMD ....click OK
To Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults...type in ... netsh winsock reset catalog .... press ...enter
To Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults...type in...... netsh int ip reset reset.log ... press ...enter
if your still having problems then try windows updates...use the custom option...look on the left side for hardware updates and get any it says you need

Also the internet connection is fine. The only problem I have left is that the cd-rom only works in safe mode. I even did the Dell Diagnostics and the cd-rom passed all of the tests.

won't hurt to try
could I get the same effect installing a demo of the new Roxio?
it may be worth trying a repair on xp also...for the lowdown go here...

set the boot order in the bios to the cd drive first and then the HD...then boot up with the cd in the cd drive and see what happens...

Have you tried that VLC player I sent you, it is certainly worth a try before going down the repair route.
If you have autoplay set to WMP you need to alter that to the VLC
