i have the following config:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
CPU: AMD Phenom X4 9650, 2300 MHz
Motherboard: Asus M3A78-EM
Chipset: AMD 780G, AMD K10

Disk Drive: ST3500418AS ATA Device (500 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA-II)
DVD Drive: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS50 ATA Device
whenever i try to read a disk whether blank/burned ,pc freezes for sometimes with hard disk making clicking sound and HD LED activity also turn off (no blinking).it may unfreeze or again freezes.when i remove the disk ,pc works normal again.
i can 100% sure that if i try to burn any disk i will get a reset error from nero with these symptoms.
NOW ,if i fiddle with the sata and power cable of hard disk and dvd drive (like taking it out ,plugging back in ;changing different port;using different cables) ,these above problems MAY disappear ,it just trial & error method.now pc works normal like it read disks ,burn them ,just no error.then in time these symptoms again come back.
i am not able to reach the root cause of this problem.please help me ,this problem is haunting me for a long time.
