Hope someone can help!
I have a Pioneer 107D which has been working fine for me for about 6 months. But just today, it started crashing my computer. It happened when I tried to play a game, and it gave me a BSOD, with the error message “A fatal exception has occurred 0028:C1B7765F” etc. When I press any key to return to windows, I get a black screen and the computer hangs.
This is really odd, since it has been working just fine until now. The only thing I did today was to install Colin McRae 2005 (DVD version) which it did just fine. But when I went to play it, I started to get this message. Now, I cannot even see the DVD drive in Windows Explorer, as it hangs windows when I try to read the contents of any disk, including standard CD games which I only played using that drive yesterday.
I have tried updating the firmware version to 1.21, which has happened just fine, but has not fixed anything. I had this drive as a slave to my CyberDrive CW099D CD-R/RW, and so I changed it around and made the 107D as the master, but still no joy. I have tried removing the drive, rebooting, and then reconnecting the drive, but still no joy. Is this a windows problem, or a 107D problem?
My specs are:
AMD Athlon 2000+
NVidia FX5200 128 Mb
80Gb Western Digital
