Hi,
I had trouble w/ my old cd burner. Everytime i put any cd in it (blank cd, application cd, audio cd...) it would not read it (or burn it), the drive would make a really loud noise and sometimes the pc would crash. I had someone look at it and he said i needed a new burner, so i bought a brand new one, installed it correctly and i still have the same problem...  So the problem is internal because this is a brand new burner... what should i do?  plz help

thank u

What ide connector is the cdrw drive connected to?, If it is connected to the secondary ide, connect it  as a slave to the primary ide, if that solves your problem, you have a problem with
the seconary ide, uninstall the secondary ide channel in device manager, on re-boot it will reload the secondary ide channel driver and that might resolve your problem. Don't forget to set the jumper on the drive to slave when connecting the drive to the primary channel, the harddrive is set as master on the primary ate channel.

Is the drive visible in the device manager? If it is, is there a yellow exclaimation mark beside it? If it isn't, does the BIOS recognise it?

Hey, had a similar problem, except for the noises, and just fixed it.  Tried lots of stuff from forums including editing the registry and a clean XP instal.  Anyway found this site: -

http://www.pcbuyerbeware.co.uk/CD-DVD-DriveProblems.htm#blank

lots of useful tips but I found that diabling DMA did the trick.  Gonna get the motherboard specific IDE drivers too but even without them DVD/CD drive work!!!

Good luck, hope it helps, Pete.
