Need Help With Hang on CD-ROM/DVD read

#1

:confused: I am experiencing the worst. When I place a DVD/CD-ROM in my 812s my system hangs. The drive stays active, keeps spinning, and can be ejected. However, everything else is unresponsive. The funny thing is that if I open Power DVD and then load the DVD, it works flawlessly. The same with CD-ROM. If I open UNREAL 2003 and let is ask for the run CD, no problems.

I know that this is a software issue, as I have done a total tear down and changed the EIDE cables. I normally run a selective auto play with a prompt for program options. I have Norton 2003 with Internet security. This occurs with them active and disabled. I run Nero 6.0 OEM. I had Sonic DLA, but have since removed the software, as it is know to cause this type of issue. I could not find InCD on my system, as I heard that might be the cause.

So I am stuck. I cannot figure this one out. Any help would be super cool.
