Problems with external Iomega CD-RW drive

I have an external Iomega 52x24x52x CD-RW drive running via a USB 1.1 port. It works fine with CD-R, and with unwritten CD-RW discs, but any CD-RW disc with any data at all on it freezes my computer completely. Please help. Am I stupid? Is this the way it is supposed to be? Are Iomega lying about this drive being a Re-writer? Any help/feedback/comments welcome.

Maybe it's something to do with USB 1.1 - that drive isn't operating at full speed. It's needs USB2 by the sound of the specifications.
