    Whenever i insert a dvd into my dvd drive my pc freezes, and then bsod happens. It has only started happening yesterday and its the same result with all dvd's i have tried so far. If i cause the bsod to appear too many times my computer becomes totally unable to start up(it reboots at the welcome screen when windows is loading) and even safemode doesn't work. So basically i need help in fixing my dvd drive(i know it is the dvd drives fault because i ended up having to reformat and same error appears so i disconnected dvd drive for now)

    Hi,
    If the BSOD doesn't happen at all when you have your dvd drive disconnected, then:

    1. Try a different IDE cable.
    2. Replace your dvd drive (it could be faulty).

    heh, thanks for that. i didnt actually think it would have been my ide drive as the dvd drive was actually working when it got the bsod but i decided its worth a try and hey it seems like it worked, no bsods so far. thanks again
