CDRW freezes PC on burn

Hi, is there anyone who can help me with this one.I Recently purchased a Liteon cdrw,model number(LTR 52327s)52 speed,it came complete with 'Nero Express'.
My computer uses win 98se and has a CPU speed of 500.
I've set the IDE as follows:
Primary ide1-DVDrom(slave)&PrimaryHD(master)
Secondary ide2-HD2(slave)&CDRW(master).
The first burn worked fine but now every time i attempt to do further burns,the computer freezes,i have to switch the computer off and reboot to try again.
Any ideas,thanks.

Does it work again after the reboot?

Sorry what i meant was does it burn a CD OK after the reboot or does it now fail on every burn, even after a reboot?

Download EndItAll from click here and use it to close down all unecessary progs. Try burning again. The progs will restart after a reboot. Excellent proggie.

So you think it probably to many programs running in the background causing the pc to freeze.
