I have an Iomega Zip CD 650 External USB CD-RW drive.
The problem is: when I installed this drive, the computer started to freeze, to show the famous blue screens every time, to restart radomly...(most of the time when it`s loading the Direct CD)
What`s the problem??? The computer was great before I install this drive...it looks like bad drivers or something....
please help me out...
oh, the machine is a AMD K6-2 500 on a Gigabyte board, by the way this happened on 2 machines!!!!

For starters, completely remove the software, and re-install it without DirectCD. If that solves your problem, we can deal with it from there ("Doctor, it hurts when I do this." "Then don't do that").

You may find, as many others have, that DirectCD isn't worth the cost of ownership.
