Hi, I have an Dell Inspiron 1525 running windows 7 32-bit and has a PBDS DVD+-RW DS8W1P ATA Device drive. Whenever I play DVDs back in any player my system locks up and my DVD drive will not eject or read the disk while Explorer is at a standstill and task manager can't even kill the process. I have tried flashing the firmware on the drive which completed successfully and had some improvement but the symptoms still occur. My DVD drive is region one and this occurs in multiple DVDs so my discs aren't scratched. Also I am able to run and install software from DVDs as well as read files and burn discs.
Any help would be appreciated
