    Hello forum,
    I recently upgraded to Win XP Pro from Win 2000.
    Now, whenever I insert a CD/DVD disk in drive, my computer freezes/crashes.
    Windows recognizes the drive, says drive is working perfectly. I have unistalled and reinstalled the drive and drivers. Doesn't solve the problem.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Do you have any CD burning software installed? If so you may need to update it or uninstall it - it may not be compatible with XP.
