BENQ 1640 rewriter: big problems!

I bought a Benq 1640 dvd burner. When I put a movie in this drive my computer goes to a blue screen and says it has shut down to prevent damage. Why can’t I put a movie in this drive? I have a friend who bought the same one and she doesn’t have this problem. Do I need to download something that I didn’t?

Welcome to cdfreaks. :slight_smile:

Please tell us details about your compu and the movie that causes DSOD. Does a commercial (bought) movie make the same?

Make sure you have installed burner correctly, check IDE cable connections and jumper on back of drive.
