A friend of Mine has an IBM -I dont remember the model- it has 128 mg of RAM, 6 gig HD, 98 OS. The problem is the following: When I insert audio cd's it will play without any inconvenient. When insert any data Cd (Burned CD's, store bought CD's like AOL trials.. (just for testing!)) the computer will lock up. If I manually eject the cd, then the computer will work again normally. Does anyone has a suggestion for this?

HELp,
Venkaya

Open Device Manager (in Control Panel, System icon) and check the Properties for the CD ROM. Usually Autoinsert Notification is checked, try unchecking it. Check the DMA setting, if checked, uncheck it, or the opposite. Do these one at a time and check the results.

I can't think of anything else, could be a BIOS setting, but I'm not sure...maybe someone else will have some more ideas.
