I'm running Windows XP. My D: drive for CD's is LG CD-RW CED-8042B. Here's the problem:
If I insert a CD, such as the AOL 9,000,000 free minutes for example, it works fine. I can also insert a "blank" CD and copy files to it -- pics, music, word docs, et cetera. If I insert that same CD that I copied the files to or if I insert a CD that came with the Kodac pictures, for example, everything freezes up. I'll open up Windows Explorer, click on the CD Drive (D:), and nothing happens. I'll just get the little hour glass that stays there forever, and I'll get the message that "Windows Explorer is Not Responding." Any suggestions?
I'm thinking about "uninstalling" my CD drive under "Device Manager," rebooting, and hoping that my computer will detect new hardware. Is that a good idea?
Anyway, as I said, if anyone has any suggestions, it will certainly be appreciated. Maybe it has something to do with the IDE, et cetera. I've been working on this all day, and I'm tired.
