    I'm just posting this for anyone else who has a similar problem...

    I have a AX59 Pro with K6-500mhz. Its been working fine with various
    cd drive over the years and even a dvd-rom drive. Anyway I recently
    added a Samsung cd Writer. Everytime I tried to access a cd in the
    writer the PC ( Windows XP) would lockup freeze and not respond. After
    much investigating I found that having UDMA enabled in bios caused the
    problem. Set to off in bios and thus forcing (according to XP
    multiword DMA or forcing PIO mode) corrected the problem.
