    :eek: I recently formated my first hard drive and installed Windows XP Pro SP2. Since then my CDRW (drive E:) functions properly but my DVD drive is not recognized, in Device Manager it says that is a "Image Simulation SCSI CdRom Device" and assigned drive G: to it, there is no drive F: now, the one assigned to the old DVD drive.
    When I try to use a DVD disk or a movie it will say "Please insert a disk into drive G:. I reinstalled and reinstalled again and Windows will install again drive G:. Please can somebody tell me what to do to make my DVD drive to work?

    I see you've had no other replies, did you ever figure out what the problem was?
