    My DVD drive has been acting up lately. Whenever i put a disc in (it can be anything, a blank DVD, a movie, a cd album etc) after about a minute or so the computer keeps locking up, then carrys on again, and then locks up again, and it keeps locking up/starting back as long as the disc is in the drive. I'm not quite sure what could be the problem, trouble is I don't have any spare systems or IDE cables etc. so I can't really determine the problem.

    -edit- Forgot to mention the drive is a Pioneer DVR-111D

    A dead Pioneer DVR=111D apparently.
    The easiest test would be to just swap out drives and see what happens.
