    Computer reboots when I insert a CD in CD-R

    Hello
    Let me explain my problem.
    When I insert a CD in my CD-R drive, the computer reboots and if I don't remove the CD the computer will keep rebooting untill I do remove it.

    I know that's not much to go on but can anyone help me with this ?
    (So I can't use the computer to burn anything anymore)

    Thanks in advance

    Kinda sounds like a hardware problem to me. Does the computer behave normally without a CD in the drive?

    Well, I thought of it being a hardware problem but I have DirectCD installed on this computer and I wonder if that couldn't be the problem.
    I don't know how to uninstall DirectCD.

    That's not what I asked. Let's start simple, and not worry about DirectCD - yet. Does the computer behave normally until a CD is inserted?

    If the answer is yes, then let's take the next step, which is a clean-boot diagnostic. If the answer is no, the CD may just be an indicator of other problems.

    Sorry about that, I've been looking for some time now and I'm going bonkers over this problem. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    To finally answer your question, YES the computer runs normally except when I insert a CD in the CD-R drive.

    Ohhhh and I forgot something.

    The computer reboots when I insert CD-R or CD-RW's, it's ok if I insert, lets say, a software CD.
