Windows 7: Windows Media Player crashes computer playing CD

Windows Media Player crashes computer playing CD

So I have been trying to play/rip this CD I just got, but I have been having no luck at all. It will start playing the song, and continue playing the whole song, but the rest of the computer crashes so I am forced to restart. I don't get why one program would crash the whole computer like that... I've also tried to rip the CD, and it would rip about 4 tracks and then the computer would crash and it would stop. Anyone having a similar problem or know how to fix this one? It is an imported Japanese CD by the way, not sure if that matters or not.

I'm using the Windows Media Player that comes with Windows 7. WMP12 I believe.

Yes, okay. No, it should not matter what the CD is. Does this happen with any other CDs? Is the CD scratched? It could also be a hardware problem. What optical drive(s) do you have?

The problem seems to have disappeared...

I just ripped a different CD to my computer successfully, and was able to play songs right from the CD I was having problems with.

Not sure what fixed the problem, could have been a Windows update or one of the various tweaks I did to my computer(like disable ReadyBoost).

I do know it had nothing to do with a scratched CD though, the CD was brand new.
