System reboots after inserting BLANK CD . . .

by ronoftn / September 6, 2009 4:35 PM PDT

... but plays CD with no problems.

I leave the blank CD in the drive during the reboot and then can burn ok.

Using Windows XP Home, 1.6 gig processor, 1 gig memory.

For some unknown reason, when playing or burning a CD, at least two thumb drives will be accessed.

Your help will be appreciated.

Thanks, Ron

About "at least two thumb drives will be accessed."

That's normal for Windows. I'll just leave it at that but comment that I don't leave thumb drives attached when I don't need them. My use of such drives is backup and if they were attached when the terrible virus did it's deed my backup would vanish. So I don't do that.

Thanks, Bob

I removed the thumb drives and now the CD drive performs correctly.
