I have an XP machine (Dell Precision 490) that freezes every 2 or 3 CD's I rip. It's a pain in the butt becasue I'm in the process of ripping all my CD's to a media server I've created. I've gotta do hundreds of these things. I don't get an error message of any kind. I simply go to burn the next CD and discover my cursor is frozen and I can not Cntl + Alt+ delete my way to the process viewer or to shut down and restart. Have to hard boot. I was thinking it might be my CDR drive but before I go buy a new one I thought I'd run this by you fine folks. I have 3 Gig RAM installed on this machine so I don't think it's a memory issue. Any advice? Thanks.
