When I insert a cd and try to access it my PC freezes. It used to happen intermittantly but now seems to happen everytime. Nothing has changed recently that I am aware of. I have checked to make certain I have the latests drivers. I have checked Event Viewer and the only thing that seems to be strange there is something called lxdxCATSCustConnectService failed to start, what ever that is! I am running windows xp, service pack 3. I use Norton anti-virus. I have an intel pentium 4 cpu 3.4ghz and 1.obg of ram. I use Nero 6 for cd/dvd etc.
Serching through the internet I found a reference to a similar problem. It suggested that the programme Ahead InCD caused the problem. I didn't think I had that programme on my PC but I found it there. It had been put on by Nero when I updated my version of their CD burner. I have taken it off and everything works perfectly again. No problem with any Cds, DVDS or any programme. Problem solved. Thanks guys for help and suggestions.
