View Full Version : What is with Windows freezing when I put in any disc?

This is ridiculous. I assumed the problem was because of a single core CPU being bogged by Winamp and then autoplay or something (which still didn't really make a lot of sense to me)...but now that I've gone dual core, the fact that inserting a blank DVD into my burner brought my system to its knees stuttering is just ridiculous.

Does anyone else experience this and if so, is there a fix?

disable autoplay. that will stop it from unnecessarily reading the disc. you can do with with TweakUI.

Yeah, everything came yesterday...I was keeping it low profile.

So far...it's ****ing AWESOME. I can't get over how snappy my system is. I'll have to run some benchies and whatnot this weekend to put the new box through the paces. :D

I noticed that with explorer for years when you insert a cd the shell becomes flaky and someimes freezes or doesn't respond. I don't know why it does this but i did the same thing to turning off autoplay. And hey kyle whats up dude?

If my boss doesn't shut his mouth i will slap the SOB.
