I’ve got a problem with my HL-DT-ST GDR8160B (LG) DVD-ROM drive. It is set up as secondary master, while my new NEC 3500AG DVD burner is Primary Slave to my HD.
Every time I place a CD in the GDR8160B, it spins up - and then promptly reboots my PC! The problem has been around for a while. It arose before I got my DVD burner, back when I had my CyberDrive CD Rewriter and also when I replaced this with an Optorite drive. I am sure I had the GDR8160B drive set up as a slave back then, I thought making it a Master when I got the NEC might help with the rebooting issue. Unfortunately, it hasn’t.
I can’t seem to pinpoint any software that may be causing this. I did think Nero 6 might be a candidate but the rebooting also occurred after I had uninstalled it.
Further system info is as follows:
AMD 1600XP, K7S5A mobo, Radeon 7000 video, Windows ME (I know, I plan on upgrading ASAP!), DMA enabled on all devices.
I’d appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thanks!
