CD Audio - Problem
PC hangs when ripping CD (and also when playing CD Audio with Windows Media Player).
I begun ripping my music CDs with “Free CD to MP3 Converter” SW (found at Tucows). It worked well for about 20 CDs, then the problem begun.
Usually, in the end of a track the access to the CD/DVD player hangs. There is no way to end any applications trying to access the player.
First I blamed the ripping software and changed to “Audiograbber”, but the problem remained. I also recognised that the problem occurs when playing a Audio CD from Windows Media Player (usually in the beginning of a track, but not always on the same track). Sometimes it works for minutes, and then the audio stops and all applications trying to access the player hangs (including File-browser).
The following drivers are installed for the player:
Pioneer A06 DVD/CD Writer is used as player.
Any Idea what causes the problem?
