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.

My Samsung laptop model no. is R418. When I insert any disk in the DVD drive, and double click on it it shows a blank screen without any files. It is recognising the cds and also running the auto play but...


You typically get a read error from the operation system if there is a problem reading the disk, so it is likely that the DVD really is blank. Try gently washing and drying (with soft tissue not heat) the DVD. Then try another computer. If it reads the data, the burn a new DVD.

I have never burned a CD. I have need of burning two tonight. What do I do?


are you burning a cd or dvd? burning a cd is pretty easy...windows will do most of the work for you. put a blank cd in your cd rom/ dvd burner drive. it will ask you what you want to do with the blank cd...vista usually asks you to format the disk...select ok.....a blank box will pop up....drag and drop your files to be burned into the blank box.....once you are done putting your media onto the disc....eject the disk...before the drive opens a box at the bottom of the screen says that the disc is being prepared for use on other computers. when it ejects, it should be done....you can try to put it back in to the cd drive and see if your data/media files are on the disc. ......now burning a dvd is alot more complicated....do you have software for burning dvd media? if you do, they have help me files and tutorials........some more good advice....youtube also shows good tutorial vids on burning. just type in "burn a cd or dvd".

Can my cd /dvd player write too?


You can also verify the users manual. Mostly you can see some code in the CD-ROM like: DVD-RW= Can write CD and DVD DVD-R= Can only read DVD's CD-R= Can only read cd's. CD-RW- Can write CD's only.

Laptop is not able to Read/Write CD/DVD


Have you tried using an disc optical lens cleaner? Try that first. Unfortunately, these things do just quit sometimes, just like Hard Drives. You may have to just resort to using external usb drive or replace the internal drive.

Computer shuts down on inserting disc


I have just fixed a computer with a similar problem. The owner installed a new DVD burner (a SATA drive) and every time he inserted a CD or DVD disc, the computer shutdown (mostly, because the front LED was still on and the CPU fan too, everything else just turned off [drives, PCI cards]). It happened in Windows, in Linux (Ubuntu) and even in the BIOS screen, so I discarded an OS problem. Also happened while booting if a CD or DVD was already inserted in the unit; as soon as the drive LED blinked, the computer crashed. After checking the obvious, I did three final tests:

1) try the DVD unit in another computer (it worked);
2) try the DVD unit with the power connector only, with the data cable disconnected (it shutdown);
3) try the DVD unit with the power connector from and external power supply, with the data cable connected (it worked).

By this point, it was obviously a power supply problem. I checked the power supply unit (PSU) and discovered it was pretty small (250 W). So I installed a more powerful one (350 W) and then it worked.

I checked with a wattmeter and it seems this DVD drive increased the power consumption by 25 watts when started to spin the disc. I really don't know if that is normal (taking 25W to start spinning the disc) or if this drive has some defect, but it seems the previous PSU could not provide that extra power and shutdown some of its output (but not all).

So, if you have this weird problem, maybe checking the power supply and testing with a bigger one may help.

Regards,

MV
