    Question Using DVD drive

    well I thought I was having some powering issue due to the fact that when I tried to play a DVD through my DVD drive, the computer would freeze up, well a buddy of mine decided to put a CD in and the drive seems to work fine. So now I'm confused...does DVD play back consume more power than the CD playback? BTW I'm running the 75W powersupply from mp3car

    Well, could be a few factors. I don't think DVD uses more power. as far as the 75 watts, that says nothing without knowing what else you are running off that power supply.

    I would try to start diagnosing this by disabling auto-start from the cd drive and see if this is replicated or not. If it is, then its probably a power/cdrom drive issue. If it doesn't come back, then you got a software issue.
