    I build computer systems and I just ran across a problem that I am stumped on. I usually build my systems as follows:

    2.4Ghz Celeron CPU
    Biostar P4SXQ Mobo
    Sony DDU-220E DVD Drive
    52x CD-RW Drive
    256mb PC2100 RAM
    Windows ME

    The DVD Drive works great on Win ME. But one customer wanted XP installed instead of me, so I built a system exactly as followed and installed XP. I ran Window's Updates to get it up to date for the customer and then I went to test the DVD Drive by placing a DVD into it. It will not reconize DVDs. It reconizes CDs, but not DVDs. So I decided that it could be the Updates that I installed, so I did a fresh format and install of XP and it still doesn't reconize DVDs. One thing I noticed is that in Device Manager, it has the drive reconized as a DVD Drive and when I click on "My Computer", it has it as a "CD-Drive". Jumper settings are also correct.... Don't know? Any hints?

    I just changed it out with a different kind of DVD Drive and it reconized DVDs fine. I changed it out with a LG 16x DVD Drive. Somebody tell me why it would not work on the Sony 5x DVD Drive and it would on the LG 16x? Thanks!
