This is certainly a jumper issue... You must have one set as Master and one set as Slave unless you have both set as Cable Select... If you have tested this and nothing works then the drives are probably not compatible with each other, but I am almost certain this is a jumper issue since it is freezing.

DVD Burner in my Dell XPS just stopped working?


Check both ends of the data cable for looseness. Check the power plug on the back of the DVD player too. If all is correct then the player itself has failed. It does happen.

My DVD burner will no longer read dvd's, when I put a blank one in to burn onto it sees it as a cd and will not let me burn to it.


You need to make sure that you have an active burning software and your drive is a dvdrw.

Media Center Receiver Service has encountered a problem and needs to close.


If you delete the information in the Control Panel and restart your computer, it will look for the driver by itself.
