Whenever i boot my computer up with the TB2003 cd in the cdrom drive, it refuses to start up, but when i take the cd out and restart it, it boots up fine....it's happened a few times now...being pretty careless and leaving the cd in the cd rom drive.

Anyone else had any problems like this?

That's because it's evil ;)

I've been alerted of a problem with the CD not ejecting once it's been placed in the drive, but not problems with the computer starting up...I'll add it to the list...

Actually, that's normal, if cd-rom cannot read a cd, the computer will either not boot or the cd-rom will not be detected. ok, it's not normal, but it happens. :)

You may have your BIOS settings set that your computer boots up from the CD-ROM first, and after it detects no cd, it will boot the hard drive (with your Operating System).

There were already old discussions about Mike being a scientologist... does he now belong to a satanic sect ? What does TB2003 played backwards tells us now ?

:evil: :D

I think it's the BIOS settings. You can't blame the cd for that.

Your thight, a cd-rom should not do this. Update your bios, but try in a newer pc first, and i'll bet there's no problem, if you you don't know how to update bios.

Oke, you're right Korgie!!! This CD IS EVIL!!!!!

I booted my computer with the TB2003 cd in the cd-rom drive... well nothing happens. In the boot menu I choose Windows XP (I have a triple boot system) and Windows XP is loading. Then suddenly XP tries to load the cd or something. The CD drive is reading, I can tell from the noise and the lights. And then Windows crashes.  :/
