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.

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
