Just installed my new 2500 but I'm having a lot of problems.
I insert a DVD and the drive begins to scan the disk, but it almost always freezes as soon as the disc is recognized. No error, just frozen.
Sometimes, it works perfectly. I put in the disc, it spins up, I open WinDVD and it plays fine...for hours and hours. But, if I take the disc out and put it back in, the system freezes.
It doesn't always happen in this pattern, but usually it will play fine once or twice but when I unload the disc and reload the same disc or a different one, the system freezes.
This only happens with DVDs. CDs play fine. I can swap those in and out all day long.
This is the second unit I've tried. The frist 2500 woulddn't even recognize DVD discs.
I've been using WinDVD 5 Platinum and XP Pro.
I've tried turing off autoplay.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling WinDVD 5.
I've tried uninstalling the drivers.
I've tried using Sonic DVD player.
I've tried uninstalling all other video software such as my ATI MMC software.
I've flashed the firmware too.
