    HEy guys and gals. here's my problemo. I just put in a dvd rom in my friends puter and Xp is failing to read anything from it...both cd's and dvd's....I've also noticed that when I insert a disc it hangs XP to the point that I cant do anything but when I eject the disc everything returns to normal speed. I went inot device manager and it says that it is working properly but it isnt. the 2 things I have noticed while in the device manager is that "Microtek simpleSCSI MIniport drivers" and SCSI/RAID Host Controllers" dont have any drivers. Could this be what is causing this? ALso I have noticed that BIOS detects the dvd rom drive too. gimme some!
