My system seems to have serious problems whenever I am using the DVD drive either with dvds or cdroms (not writing just reading). It's a serious pain because the system stalls out, and I'm really wanting to install ut2k4 because I got the radeon drivers working now
But, as usual there is a problem and I'm trying to figure it out.
First of all, it's not that the hardware is bad. I've used this drive extensively in windows for just about everything (creating large images, burning dvds) and I don't even have a coaster to show for it.. everything has been grand (NEC 8x dual format.. 2500 model.. highly recommend it off newegg).
Anyway, does anyone know why this might be happening or point me in a direction so that this won't occur. The times it's happened are when I've tried to install ut2k4 (at some point during the installation, usually early, sometimes it doesn't even get to the setup wizard just stalls whenever I try to run the installer). Also it stalled whenever I was trying to install my kernel source package so I could install the radeon drivers. I rebooted and tried again and it worked the second time, but ehh.. not good.
Thanks for any help.
