computer shuts down on cd read.

Specs: win7
I have seen thins twice now on newer systems. Complete different setups and OS's. But currently its on a win7 box. I have a sata dvd burner that shuts down the system upon reading an old CDR. The CD is not easy to read and has been on the shelf for a long time. I can read other CDs from the same Dye CDR's batch but a few of them shut down the system? Any ideas?

Oh that works fine. The aim is not to save the CD, its to figure out how and why a cd would do that? I'm going through old CDs and moving them over to "good" media. This is the third CD that has dont this.
