    I have a screen shot of the error. I thought it was the DVD driver not compatible so I went and bought a different one. Same thing. I now know it is an XP issue. Possible a registry edit needs to be done, but I need some help and direction. I have scaned for viruses, spyware, and reinstalled SP2.
    I have ran the sfc /scannow. I have replaced the driver.cab file with the one off the CD.
    Please help!

    this is more of a hardware configuration issue. if jumper is set on slave or master try
    on cable select. also go to device manager and right click on drive to update driver.
    use automatic search for windows to install correctly.

    I have tried the jumpers and no combonation works. When I go to update the driver it just comes up with the same box. Access denied.

    you may have to clear the cmos if the bios is somehow involved. it may have a detect
    failure issue there. a clear cmos will reset defaults. the other is a bad card in the drive
    or board fault has developed. the cable could be bad on one spot causing this. xp was
    reinstalled ruling out system files. no viruses. did you use same cable on both drives?

    cleared the CMOS and still can't get rid of the error. I changed cables and still same thing. I am backing up the data and going to try a repair install.

    it still sounds like a hardware configuration problem. if you do a repair install and see
    these still coming up you have a possible bios issue. protected mode driver issues were
    supposed to have been resolved after windows millenium ed. had none.
