Good evening khlauster...

Upgraded in what way?  Changed from one model to a different one?

Then test it on another system, probably the new drive is causing it. Or you can return it, and ask a new one if there is warranty left.

How do you know if your security is working?

Protecting your business doesn’t have to mean sifting through endless alerts and notifications. With WatchGuard Total Security Suite, you can feel confident that your business is secure, meaning you can get back to the things that have been sitting on your to-do list.

Agreed, with nobus.  Certainly sounds like a hardware malfunction of that drive.  I don't think that anything in XP would be causing the symptoms you are describing.  There are no drivers or firmware to update - it's just a CD-R(W) drive.

But to totally rule that out, put it into a different system, and see what it does.  If it exhibits the same symptoms - bingo, it's the drive.  If not, then...  well, let us know.  :-)

Using Safe Mode, uninstall the CD drive(s) that appear in Device manager. Reboot. Allow Windows to redetect the drive. T
