I have Windows NT 4.0 with SP3.  I just installed a Creative Labs SoundBlaster 16 Card on the PC. The sound works under windows and it reads any data cd but when I put a music cd in the system freezes up on me as it is trying to read it.

Update your system to a newer SP.  there was a file (I think it was CDROM.SYS) that needed updated past SP3 because there were problems when playing audio CDs.  And SP3 is quite old, I might not recommend 6a (just because I don't like putting the newest service pack on important machines right away), but go to at least 4, if not 5.

Yeah, better to install it the minute it's released and get a blue screen of death because on your system, this updated driver fails...

Yes I realised the reason, was just being facetious.  :-)

I thought BSOD's (not the EE guy) were just a part of the OS, you mean you can have a system without them?

sorry................. crappy day, just trying to bring some light in
