Hello I recentley posted a thread regarding which dvd rewriter to buy and as advised bought the NEC 3520. MY problem is i have just fitted it and when i try to boot the system it gets as far as the boot screen where windows xp lis loading the screen just befor the logon screen comes on but it will not go any further i have booted it in safe mode this works but this is the only way it will load up. I bought the drive from ebuyer and am wondering if anybody could possibly help and give me advice on wether it is a problem with the drive or am i doing something wrong as i am far from a genious in fitting drives. So i took the drive out and booted the system and the system now works fine. Please could somebody give me some HELP. Thanks. My pc is a packard bell imedia 5094 i dont know if this could be a compatability problem im sure some one can help. Thanks again.
