its a brand new 50x cd rom drive, it works perfectly under win98/win2k, however in XP it pauses my computer for about 30 seconds when I insert a CD, half the time it'll detect the cd, sometimes it still thinks the previous cd is still in..i tried turning on DMA, i tried turning off the autoplay features, i tried switching around the jumpers, i also tried running with just the cdrom( i have a cdrw connected that works perfectly )

btw I have a brand new computer so I don't believe it has anything to do with the hardware, I was thinking maybe an IRQ conflict but the device manager says there is not one..does anyone know whats wrong? would appreciate any help.

first make sure you don't have any 16bit drivers loading in autoexec.bat or config.sys.
second, your drive my simply not work with xp; check microsoft's hardware compatability page ( forget the link) for more information.
