Insertion of certain CD into Samsung 223F locks up computer hard?



I have a Samsung 223F (sata) that seems to work fine until I insert a specific CD into it. (MB drivers supplied on a CD from Abit) This CD locks up the computer hard and the three finger solute won’t even help. (I need to completely cycle the power).

The same CD works just fine in another system.

Is my 223F likely dying?? Why does the mere insertion of a CD causes such a severe lock up? If the media was marginal won’t it just give up trying to read it?

I upgraded firmware to SB02 but that didn’t solve the problem.


Would it be possible to put the problem drive in another system and see if it has the same problem there?
