Symptoms:

Mounting an image from my non-virtual dvd drive freezes my windows xp, while mounting the same image from my hdd works fine. It's not connected particularly to any image files. It happens every time, with every image file.

Daemon Tools Lite 4.12.3

If it's not enough, just ask... :)

Opinion:

I guess it's my cd/dvd drive. Or some kind of software bug (e.g. my firewall and fingerprint reader software in pair caused BSoDs)...
I think the error is in explorer.exe, not in daemon.exe.

Thanks.

You talked about BSODs. Could you post some minidumps (windows\minidump folder).

Well, in the end I had to reinstall my system. So I don't have any minidumps. But I'm not experiencing the aforementioned problems, daemon tools is working as it should. :) I'll leave a post here, if I can determine which software was the cause of the problems (I haven't reinstalled everything, just the base system). I hope the symptoms won't turn up again.
