It happened something strange lately when dealing with poor quality CDs and DVDs. On 3 different PCs (2 WinXpPro, 1 Win2003), all sporting NOD with Default AMON settings enabled that trying to browse or read CD/DVD contents (jpeg images), the computers got frozen. Couldnt launch task manager either. The only response was given by the ALT+TAB combination showing the task list icons. Had to hard reboot. Could it be NOD kernel trying to access data on a bad/poor support, ending in a freeze state? Maybe a stuck NOD kernel can freeze the PC?
