First, My english is not very well...

I have a hackintosh since 7 months.
i started with 10.4.8 (jass) and now i am on 10.5.1 (kalyway).

I have a problem on both versions.
When i insert a dvd or cd, it does not matter it's empty or not.
the cd/dvd starts spinning, and i can go too the finder.. I can open files from the cd/dvd,
But then the whole PC hangs. I get the grey screen,
there stands written in several languages, to restart the system. (kernel panic?)
it takes between 1 and 5 minutes before it crashes,

When i insert a empty cd/dvd, and start Toast. the burn process will start, mostly the pc crashes under the write process, so the cd is broken.

My setup:
Motherboard: Gigabyte Ga-P35 DS4
Proces: Q6600 (qaudcore 4x2.44mhz)
Memory: 4x 1gb kingston ddr2 800mhz
Videocard: Ati x1950gt
Cd/Dvd: Pioneer 111d. (ide).
I boot in AHCI.

I read a lot of messages that people are happy with their pioneer 111d, so it must work...but how?

This says the system information:
Revisie: 1.23
Externe eenheid: No
Protocol: ATAPI
Eenheidnummer: 0
Sockettype: Intern
Low power polling: No

The writer works fine in windows xp, but i need the writer everyday, so i must reboot everytime.
This is my only problem with the mac.
