Angry DVD Burner problems

I just got a DVD BURNER. I tried to install it and had a little trouble. The device was recognized but when I would insert a disc a would get the "blue screen of death" (VXD ERROR). I am running a AMD K-6 processor. Is my system not pwerful enough? The DVD burner said minimum requirements were a 266 MHZ SYSTEM. I tried setting it as Master (by itself) and Slave with an Acer CDRW as master. Neither way worked. Can someone please help me? I am very confused. Thanks.

If your DVD-R & CD-R are sharing the same IDE port on the motherboard then you need to change the jumper settings on each drive.

I would recommend you set the DVD-R as Master and the CD-R as Slave. There's normally a small diagram on each describing the appropriate jumper setings.

The other IDE port on your motherboard is used for the hard drive(s).

Good Luck.

The blue screen of death pretty much means that Windows is not happy with you installing things. If the above didn't help, I suggest formatting and reinstall windows (backup everything of course). Windows has a funny way of not letting you install new hardware, I try to reformat every 3-4 months as a preventitive measure- with all the software and hardware I have, they are bound to crash the system sooner or later.
