    When I hook power up to cd-burner the computer won't bootup. If you hook power up when running will freeze and you have to power down. I have tryed 2 different cd would they both be bad? Same brand same type OptoRite Thanks Ben

    More details are neeeded... what type of system are you running? Power Supply wattage?

    You COULD be trying to pull more juice than the power supply can offer...

    How are you connecting the CD burner to the computer? IDE ports?

    My system is 666 processor power supply watts is 400 I am hooking internal this has all worked for almost a year. I am thinking maybe bad power supply but its odd to me that a new burner would be bad also this is why I think power supply not putting out enough current Thanks Ben
