    Windows 7 64bit. I am able to boot from DVD and I can read and play a DVD, but when I insert a blank DVD the computer freezes up.
    Same blank DVD can be used in other computer.

    My first thought would be a faulty drive.

    then reboot and check if it is still the same

    What burning apps do you have installed? You may have them included within programs where you might not expect them, such as in multimedia management software or mp3 taggers. It sounds like it could be a driver conflict. Though most modern burning apps are compatible on the same machine, driver conflicts can still occur.

    Along the same lines, are there any recently installed programs that may have been installed around the time you first noticed the problem?

    And do the brands of DVD make a difference?
