Windows hangs when I insert a disk
So I recently bought a brand new Sony DVD RW SATA drive (Optiarc AD-7240S) and successfully burned a disc yesterday.
Later in the day I inserted a disk to install some software and the drive began to spin up and then just went idle, only my mouse worked and the hdd light was on permanently. I rebooted and tried a brand new disk which did the same thing again.
I have tried reinstalling drivers, using a different SATA socket on the motherboard (Asus M2N-X), changing the boot order and I tried turning off autoplay but none of this helped.
EDIT: I just booted up in XP and the drive spins up and I can read and write data fine so this is a W7 OS problem.
I just dont understand why it worked to burn a disk and then just stopped working the second time I ever used it. Can anyone help me please?

Thanks for the help but I just did that and no luck. One thing to note is the drive does load unscratched disks in windows 7, but even with a minor scratch it freezes. Now in XP I load the same disk (with minor surface scratches) which wouldnt load in W7, into the same drive with no problems, how can this be?!
