Philips CD Writer pcrw1208 and win XP

My windows crashes and according to the error report it is because of the CD writer software. I have not installed any software (besides the driver supplied). Is there a specific driver for win xp

Actually there is no drivers for Cd Writers, just programs.
Try getting a better program instaled (for example Nero 5.5.10 or later version). If the problem persists, try checking the ide conector or the power suply. If all this fails, I´m afraid you´ll have to buy yourself a brand new cd writer (actually yamaha or plextor are not that expensive, and they are worth every single penny)
Good luck

One thing you might try is seeing if your motherboard's bios needs to be updated, or maybe you need a new motherboard

Well what software are you using?  i'd agree with Fanpire, Nero is the way to go.  I suppose that Phillips came with some crummy software that isn't compatible with XP.  Is it "blue screening" your system or does the CD-RW program just crash?  Also try disabling the built-in CD-RW support of XP.  Start/Run/services.msc, stop the IMAPI CD-Burning Service and set it via Properties to Manual start (or Disabled).
