hi so i have an issue thats driving me completly bonkers!! everytime i use my cd drive in any way my computer starts lagging. It doesnt matter in which way i use the cd, from copying into itunes, to trying to play a movie directly from the cd drive to just having the folder open causes every program to lag. Best way to explain the type of lagging i guess is that all the sounds become like a scratched record every few second. Everything works and it never freezes completly but it makes it annoying as hell to play music/movies directly from the drive or try to listen to music while importing cds into itunes. Im pretty sure ive had this problem since i rebooted my computer a while back ago. Using any other of my dirves is no issue. Just the cd.. so wondering if theres some way i can fix this? Or if its simply that the cd drive needs to be replaced.

Thanks loads for any help in advance !!

You have onboard sound and onboard video?

Processor in the system, please and amount of RAM.

And...did you check Event Viewer for errors that might provide clues?
