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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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
