Exclamation Problem with CD/CDRW

If I insert any CD in CD writer at the time of reading the CD the computer restarts. If CD is in writer then it goes in till bios setting and again restarts. If CD is removed then it starts OK. I have tried by replacing the connecting cable and CD drive the problem as it is. Can any body help me for this?

It does that with every CD, or just a particular CD? How old is the CD writer? Did you replace the connecting cable, or just removed and reconnected it?

This sounds to me like a system corruption of some sort. It might be helpful to know if you were uninstalling or installing something just before this started to happen?

I have such similar problems, but it happens to any USB thumb drive. Before pulling out the drive, I clicked the "Safely Remove Hardware" tray icon to stop the drive and waited until the XP OS prompted me "safe to remove hardware". But the moment I pulled out the drive, the system restarts

I was thinking to restore the system to an earlier restore point. But the above scenario does not happens every time. On average like 'one restart for every 3 to 4 pulls'. What would have caused this

First of all, do you have any other problems with your system?

If not, try updating the driver or reinstalling it.
To update it, you'll have to go to the manufacturer's website. Alternatively, you can use the freeware DriverMax, or a good shareware.
To reinstall it, just uninstall the driver with Device Manager, and Windows should reinstall it after a restart.

Sounds like your problem is when the CD starts to spin.

Check your power supply, a CD drive draws 3 to 4
times more power when it starts to spin.

I've seen this type of thing before after there's been an issue with network enabled software. One such occasion was when someone had a power cut midway through uninstalling CDBurnerXP. Doing a system restore would be the first logical thing to attempt.
