PLEXTOR DVDR PX-L890SA 1.07 - Freeze



Windows XP 5.1; PLEXTOR DVDR PX-L890SA 1.07:

Some DVDs play alright, but regularly one will get into the first minutes of previews and freeze; almost always, when attempting to exit/eject the DVD, it will freeze my system. Any ideas for a solution?

Many thanks.


Welcome to the forum. What playback software are you using?

Carefully checking and cleaning the DVDs may help. A fingerprint(or scratches) causes freeze-ups.


Thanks for the note. I’ve eliminated that possibility, as it happens on new/clean ones too; it’s some kind of graphics card / driver issue, but I haven’t been able to identify it; all the tests I’ve run don’t seem to clarify matters, so I’ll probably take the PC into the shop soon and just have a new graphics card installed. Thanks again.
