Question Optical drive help

I have just recently built me a a new computer from new parts and parts I have salvaged from another computer and i am having an issue with a optical drive i have pulled out of my old computer. It is a HP DVD640 DVD and CD burner do it all etc. But the problem i am having with it is that when i i ever try to put a CD or DVD or any disk in there of any kind it freezes my computer and I have to restart. It doesn't even load up whats on the disk before it freezes, it just shows it empty then freezes. I have updated the firmware to the latest and to the best of my knowledge it doesn't have any drivers, so if somebody could help me i would most appreciate b/c i don't want to spend $60+ on a new one.

Here Here is a link to some pics of my computer. The first two have some info about my drive. The others are some i took earlier for a different purpose but you can look at them if you want.
