CD-RW PROBLEM

About 2 years ago, I bought an internal CD-RW to go into my system, which I installed, and it worked fine, along with the CD-ROM Drive (which came with the system.)
However, I got a virus on the system, and tried to fix it by reinstalling from Win98SE to first edition. This, however, didn't work, and resulted in the 2 CD Drives to freezing the system when a disk was loaded in either. Since then, I have found that this only happens if there is any CD-writing software installed on the system.

I took the PC to this PC Clinic, who wiped the drive and took off the virus, but they didn't know why the drives weren't working.

I have now installed Windows 98 SECOND EDITION back on, and also changed the drives to a better config, thanks to Woodchip and others, but the system still freezes when CD-copying software is installed and I place a cd in either drive.

Sorry for the long message!

Any ideas would be greatly appreaciated.

Thanks, Tom

I just thought it looked quite long and confusing, and wanted to start again, so that anyone who thought they knew anything, didn't have to spend ages reading through it all ---

Thanks for putting the link on though - so people can see more into the problem if they need to.
