With blank DVD/CD computer crashes

9 out of 10 times when I insert a blank DVD or CD to write to, the whole computer crashes (the dreaded blue screen) A DVD/CD that has info written on it all play fine.

Is this a problem with my DVD component, or with my computer?

My computer used to do this until I installed more RAM. Seems those video writing programs want to hog all the system RAM which causes the crash. I have at least 1 GB RAM minimum in all my computers. Hope this helps.

I hope that you have a goood back-up of file. Getting blue screen error is a fatal OS problem. You need to re-install windows.You need to get the CD that came with your computer or the operating system disc you used to install the windows. Insert the disc on the CD-DVD drive and restart your computer. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD or DVD... message. Installation will start. Good Luck!

two solutions:
1-boot your windows from "Safe Mode". then download and install a driver for your DVD Drive.
(sometimes windows crashes because of installing new devices like motherboard or CPU)
2-reinstall your operating system (OS).
it is rare that an OS Crashes by installing a new DVD DRIVE!

OK, first of all the blue screen appears only when windows is loaded so that means that you are still not rebooting from the cd, Turn on the computer and immediately press either the F1 key or the F2 key at one-second intervals to enter the BIOS setup utility. As the Guys at Gateway.com say it.
Then go to a screen called boot sequence which should allow you to choose from where the computer is going to restart from. make sure that the CD drive is first on this list then SAVE AND EXIT. after that, the windows vista cd should work.
make sure you press whatever key it wants you to press to enter to windows vista.

Disc does not run when inserted


Just try to find another computer with optical drive and copy the whole CD content to a flashdrive, it might be the optical drive on your computer is broken or dirty or the CD itself might need cleaning. After you copy the Whole CD into a flashdisk, direct the dialog to your flashdisk! Good Luck!

Blank blue screen when trying to startup


Seems data corruption on critical files. Download my upload HDD Regenerator v1.51.iso (less than 2MB), burn onto CD (as image, not as data!). Boot from this CD and scan the whole Hard drive to recover any data corupption (may take nights!). You may need to change to Boot from CD first in BIOS.
Good Luck!

DVD TSST Corp CD/DVDW TS-H552B. Computer crash using DVD+R

I tried using a blank DVD+R 16X and as soon as I closed the DVD drawer the computer crashed. No warning, no blue screen just straight to a restart. If I left the DVD in it cycled through back to a restart.
I tried the latest firmware from Samsung but it still happened S10.
I then tried an HP firmware update HP13 from their driver update page and all is well.
If you need to know more of my computer spec then please ask.

Problems recording DVD


It sounds to me like you are having driver or software trouble/conflicts with CD/DVD monitoring programs. After booting, look in the lower right hand corner and see if there are any icons like DISK AT ONCE or VIRTUAL DISK MONITOR running. If you have any programs running in the system tray, it is probably that which is causing the problems.

If worse comes to worse, go into CONTROL PANEL, ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS and then remove any program that involves CD or DVD writing, such as ROXIO, NERO, SONIC, any of these. After removal, reboot, and then once everything is up and running try inserting a blank DVD. If it runs correctly (should show a blank disk or ask you what you want to do with a blank disk), then it was a software driver problem. Once fixed, you can either reinstall your old CD/DVD writing management program (like Nero or Roxio), or try a more stable and higher quality alternative (like the excellent, and free, DEEPBURNER), which is less likely to have driver/software problems.

Good luck...

CD burner and possibly the CD Drive


Try a different blank CD, I have thrown out many new blank CD's and DVD"s, and for some reason one will work and the next won't.
