Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
Every time I insert a blank DVD to be recorded my computer crashes and have to be reiniciated. I tried different brands of DVD and still doing the same thing. The only way to record is to insert the blank DVD while the machine is still reiniciating. I use a Pioneer recorder.
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.
