Toshiba dvd sd-m1212

every few times it reads a disc in there no matter what it is, dvd, cd, anything, the drive tends to lock up pretty bad freezing everything. the light stays solid. sometimes i am able to get out of it other times no. anyone else know of this problem, possibly have a solution other than to buy a new drive?

It could also be software… (drivers for example)

So more details on the software you are using would be helpful (including OS)

The more detailed your description the easier it is for others to help you…

im on windows 98se

havent updated anything for the drive… dont think there are any.

and it locks up when read, either y going in My Computer, or watching a movie, or playing a game.
