    This is a new build for my son. Installed windows xp home using an old hp dvd burner. Everything is fine except that the hp drive, that was used to install windows, see every cd or dvd as a music cd. For example, the windows xp disc, when put into this drive, shows up as a music cd with a small cda file on it. So the drive is working (pre-operating system) fine, the discs are fine ( checked on other pc's). I have searched google and cannot find anyone who has had this problem. I had read about the registry possibly being corrupt and went in to look for upper and lower filters but they were non-existent. I am at a total loss. :confused: Any ideas?
