    I have had the Samsung SH-S202J installed in my computer for about 2 months, it has been fine until a week or so ago, now whenever I try to play a CD or DVD my PC freezes up and I have to remove disc and reboot. Any ideas on what the problem could be? I have uninstalled Nero 7(which came with it, and reinstalled but to no avail. Now I am getting WNSPI32.DLL and ADVRCNTR2.DLL errors!! Any ideas? All the Registry Cures I have tried just want money to install their programs and I'm not sure which if any will really help.
