Windows XP Pro Freeze Issue

    I recently purchased a Powerspec E372 machine. From my old computers I
    added a soundblaster sound card, and a plextor ide dvd drive. The machine
    worked fine for the first couple weeks. Recently, I have started seeing
    windows xp professional freeze when I put a disc in the plextor ide drive
    I have not seen the problem when using the pioneer sata dvd drive.
    and launch EAC or Nero 7
    Other than changing ide cable, does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this
    and what the cause might be.

    Could it have anything to do with an IDE drive in an SATA machine?

    My computer information
    Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Processor Q9300
    8GB composed of 4- 2048MB DDR2/800 DIMMS
    Motherboard Intel DP35DP
    1TB RAID 0 - (2 x 500GB SATA HDDs) 7,200 RPM
    Blu-ray ROM / DVD± / ±RW Drive
    GeForce 8800GT PCIe 512MB

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Mike,
    If possible, try your IDE drive in another PC in order to see whether the
    problem persists or not.
    Also you might want to clean the drive laser lens, maybe it is a little
    dirty and causes the freezing effect when trying to read the disc.

    Hi Mike,

    Are you using magicJack? Some of the devices are causing freezing of the
    XP operating system. Pull magicJack out and the operating system returns to
    speed.
