PC retarts after inserting a blank DVD-R?????

I have winXP with service pack 2. My pc burner worked fine up until a few months ago after I insert a blank dvd-r or even cd-r it will restart but will not fully restart until I remove the blanks media. At first I thought it was the cheap dvd-r's I bought so I bought the usuall ones I was using that worked great. It will restart about 8/10 times on me. I dont know what I can do. I disabled the autorun hoping that would be it but nothing. Any info would be appreciated


Have your tried reinstalling the burner software Holik?

It may well be that your dvd drive is on it's way out too mate.
