I am not sure how to explain my problem, but I will try. I just replaced my HD and have loaded the OS and most of my apps. I connected my USB external burner (Samsung) and my USB external HD.
The problem I have occurs every few minutes, the PC locks up, and I notice the light blinking on the burner, then I hear a couple of bells (like the found new harware sound but without a message) after the bells the computer goes back to normal.
I have tried the Microsoft Autofix utility for autoplay problems, and the tweak UI utility for XP neither work.
I can't seem to find a solution on google as well.
Any insight or help would be greatly appreciated.
