dvdr-rw acting weird

By Htos1 ·
Try this one:A dvdr-rw drive will not read any oem/burned/cd-rw/dvd disc that has data on it.The light comes,the drive controller light comes on,stays on,then the system reboots-every time,even when I leave the disc in and reboot it loops the the reboot indefinately.Remove the disc,and it's fine and dandy.Blank discs work fine and you can burn them all day.They don't cause a reboot.None of this occurs in safe mode at all.Dead Windows?(p4HT 3.4ghz,512mb,ide,nVidiaTI200,SBLive5.1,SmartLink56k)

that is weird. are you running a 'make your cdrom look like a floppy disk' software? i wonder if it is an old version with a resource leak. perhaps you've updated to xp sp2 recently?
try turning software off for a test. post your burner software version and windows version please?

have you try to play original cd or original dvd movies?

if the problem still occurs, you better replace a new dvd-writer drive

Well,it doesn't matter what type of disc it is,IF there is data on it,it will stop,then reboot.The burning software is Roxio 6 basic w/updates,and directCD(drag-to-disc) is turned off(i.e.it doesn't load @ startup)I'm gonna toss the drive,just to be sure.Also dig this,I got a call @ work for THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM on a blade array at a medical company here in town.The dvd-r-rw is used for daily backups,and does the same thing,blanks are good,but don't put ANY recorded/oem disc in it.I think we may have a bad production run for at least two companies-LG and Lite-On.

Final note: It was a bad unit on both occasions,no real problem with either the server(pIV,dual core,win2kserver)or the workstation(pIV dual core,winXP prosp2),an LG and a Lite-On respectively.Thanks for your help.
