I am using the IDVD16DDBE, with nero OEM suite 6. My problem used to be that the disks would not play in any other player. Now, If the drive is on, nero locks up. As soon as I turn the drive off, all nero cd functions work, except the DVD ones, as there is no dvd burner attached at that point. Windows XP Pro sees the drive. What is my problem?? Firmware? What?

No… Test the drive in another computer.
