Mandrake 9.2 freeze when detecting DVD-RW Drive

Hi everyone,

I have just installed Mandrake 9.2 as guest OS using VMware Workstation on Windows XP home edition as host OS. The problem is everytime I start Mandrake, it freeze when it get to hardware detection and it also cause Windows does not function properly (I have to turn it off manually). But, if I put any cd on the drive and start Mandrake, it works fine (strange???). Can anyone tell me what is the problem? Any help much appreciated.
