I have an IBM Thinkpad T30 with a CD-RW - DVD Rom.  It perfectly reads CDs but when I insert a DVD+RW (whith a movie I have recorded on TV and which I have no problems to watch on my desktop which also has a DVD Rom) then it seems to somewhat freeze my thinkpad. More exactly nothing seems to happen but when I open explorer and try to expand  the 'My Computer' view then it freezes.

Thanks for any prompt help, I need to fix this before tomorrow as I will leave for vacation and would like to be able to watch the movie on my thinkpad.
