|Samsung cdrw hangs in XP pro|
Sometimes my Samsung 52/32/52 CDr/rw works OK. Other days it refuses to let go of the CD (recordable or commercial SW). It won't eject from explorer or from the front panel button, even during startup and just flashes its light. When it decides to open the cd, it shows blank (0 bytes). The only way to get the cd out is to use the paperclip and then it takes several days of re-starts to wake up and do anything, even flash!
The machine is new (2 months old), has win xp pro and nero (which has been working OK).
