I have troubleshooted the cause of my XP reboots…it’s Nero 184.108.40.206/InCD 220.127.116.11.
XP was rebooting randomly, but especially when I right-clicked DVD-RW drive icon to bring up menu…this would frequently cause a pause in bringing up the menu, followed by an XP reboot. Reboots were prone to occur randomly at other times. Did a fresh XP install and monitored every program I re-installed, and found Nero was the culprit. The DVD-RW is set as secondary master, with a Samsung DVD/CD-RW as secondary slave. Before I installed the DVD-RW (Pioneer 107), DVD/CD-RW was set as secondary master, and also got occasional reboots.
Does anyone have any ways to get round this (I may have to use Roxio). Incidentally, XP native CD recording is disabled for the drives.
