Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) after inserting CD

This problem can be caused by incompatible disc-burning software.

Solution #1: Uninstall your current disc burning software (i.e., Nero) and download updated or more compatible software.

Cause 2 - Bad Disc Drive

This problem can come about in the face of bad optical drive firmware or driver configuration.
