    Yesterday (thursday 08-10-04)my DVD-ROM drive stopped letting me copy files from a dics to my hard drive. The drive still reads discs and burns files to discs. But when i select a file on the disc to copied to the hard drive the desktop resets its self. I've never seen this before, can anybody help. My DVD-ROM drive is a generic 8x dual format DVD-R

    This might do the trick:

    Go to Device Manager >

    Expand the tree for DVD/CD ROM Drives >

    Find the drive in question, right click it and go to Properties >

    Under the Driver tab, select Uninstall then OK.

    Now reboot and Windows should detect and reinstall the drive.

    If this doesn't help try the same steps as above except expand the tree for IDE ATA/ATA Controllers and uninstall either the Primary or Secondary controller depending on which one the drive in question is attatched to. Nero Info Tool can tell you which chain the drive is on under the Configuration tab.
