    For anyone getting a Blue Screen when trying to Rip or Burn a CD/DVD

    I found that even if you download and install your motherboard drivers after
    installing Vista, they don't replace the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Extract
    the drivers to a folder, open the control panel, expand the IDE ATA/ATAPI
    controllers. Start from the last controller on the list, right click and
    choose "Update Driver Software...", then "Browse my computer for driver
    software". On this window choose "Let me pick from a list..." then Have disk
    if the driver is not list and browse to where you extracted the drivers. I
    have an Nforce 4 board and had to install the drivers for the last 3 in the
    list (don't reboot until you update all 3 drivers) when Windows starts back
    up it will reinstall your hard drives and CD/DVD drives and will need to
    reboot one more time. Done!

    I'm using an NForce 4 board and the stock drivers that Vista installed work
    great. I found in the past ( as did many other users) that the stock drivers
    ( In XP) were actually faster and less trouble prone than the Nvidia IDE
    drivers. The Forums at places like http://www.guru3d.com/ and
    http://www.nforcershq.com/forum/index.php are full of stories about
    corrupted drives and lost data using the NForce IDE drivers. In your case
    apparently they were needed to solve a problem but unless there's a problem
    with something using the Vista supplied drivers I would not install them.
    As always YMMV,
    Bob

    The only drivers I changed is the ATA/ATAPI controllers. With Vista, the
    list showed I had 9 controllers, when in fact I only have 3: one for the
    serial ATA and 2 for PATA.
