DVD drives crashing the pc

  red dragon 09:07 19 Jan 2005

If I do practically anything after ejecting and changing the cd/dvd then closing either of my dvd drives my pc crashes (particularly if in windows media player.

Afer doing a reset all seems to be fine except the quick launch toolbar is turned off.

Any ideas?

And how are your drives set up? i.e. which ones are on primary ide and secondary and which ones are set to master or slave, it all helps.

No error messages the pc just locks.
2x hdd connected together
2x dvd connected together

Just to be sure, run the usual programmes such as adaware, virus scan, spybot, etc. Has this just started happening or have you recently added some new bit of kit ?

I am currently running
spybot s&d
adaware plus
spywareblaster and norton 2005.

No new kit has been added.
I have sp2.
