Hi all,

First post so here goes

Just completed a rebuild of my machine - XP pro fresh install

Now when I try to browse the CD drive or a USB pen drive in Windows Explorer - it see's no files. I have checked out the CD drive for new drivers but the Liteon site says the built in Windows ones are the latest - the pen drive workd fine before the rebuild without any drivers - leaving me with the guess it is XP itself with the problem. Before asking I've not put any patches on yet - but then i dont see this as a patching issue - browsing the CD! For the hardware guys out there - the CD is detected fine in the bios and is assigned a drive letter as normal. Device manager reports the device as working OK.

To complicate things - when i put in a CD and autorun kicks in it attempts to launch the application which must mean it can read the autorun file - it stops though with the carnt find file eg setup.exe pane. Right clicking the devices gives me the properties for the drives. I added a second hard drive to the machine which works fine and i has some software that needs a CD to run on that drive - I open the app and it asks for the CD - I put it in and it launches. I try to browse the CD - NOTHING.

As for the pen drive - I plug it in to the USB and it is assigned a drive letter - browse it and NOTHING

This one is now bothering me and wondered if anyone had any idea's

Cheers
