I am running windows ME and have a xerox usb printer that won't work unless it loads before my external cd burner. If the cd burner loads first the printer bugs out and I have to re-install the drivers. If I turn off the external drive the printer works fine. Is there a way to force the printer to load first?

Are they both on the same USB root? Do you have 2 USB in the back and 2 in the front? You could try using the printer in the back and the burner in the front. (or which ever way) Since they are different root hubs then it seems to me it should work.
