    Hi,

    I have been facing this problem of Vista hanging when i insert the CD in the drive.

    So say my computer boots and then its all settled, i open the tray and then insert a CD, after that i can only make it working after a hardboot.

    So with the CD inside now i boot the machine and vista starts now i can go to explorer and browse the CD. So the Drive is working fine.

    Now at this point i install a software, after CD 1 is over it asks for CD2 at that time it hangs and the story is over. so ideally at this stage i cannot install anything thats more than 1 cd.

    Ive searched in google, found quiet many people with the same issue, but couldnt get any resolution.

    Does anyone know how to fix this please?

    Does it hang before you put the 2nd cd in the drive?

    Thanx for your response.

    it hangs after I put the second cd.

    sometimes it hangs the moment I put the cd.

    I suspect some problem with vista explorer. what do you think is the fix

    Sounds like your 2nd cd has corrupted files. Do your other cd's work?

    nope the cd does not have a problem.

    but if i open the tray & put any working cd it hangs

    Sounds like your disk drive needs replaced. Can you borrow another drive from someone to confirm this?

    ill try doing this, but i can still access the cd when it has cd inserted and rebooted.

    So ideally the CD Drive is working it reads and writes files

    Its only when in the middle of somethng if i decide to install something, Vista would hag and then i have to restart.
