Optiarc DVDRWBD BC-5600S Causes computer to lockup

I havent yet tried to burn a disc since it is extremely slow.I can get dvds to play but the video chops

Fix that worked for me

Hey guys, I was having the same problem with my OptiarcBD5600 drive on my Dell Studio 1735 laptop with Windows 7 and a friend of mine found the following fix and its pretty simple.

1. Download the latest Chipset and Storage Matrix Drivers. The ones for my laptop were found here Download Locations

2. Make sure you have the latest firmware for the Optiarc BD Drive, which, via Dell is version 10AB03 which can be found here Newest Optiarc Drivers.

Those two steps allowed me to having a working Blu-Ray player. In fact the combination of those 2 things and Windows 7 have my Laptop working better than it ever has before.

I hope this post can help people having the same problem that I had.
