    This message might be a lil long, sorry! I just finish upgrading from W2K to XP Everything is working fine, except for 2 things. I have been trying to figure out why but I cannot. I have 2 HDD, master and slave & 2 cd-drives, regular cd and a cd-rw. I made sure everything in the bios is right. Bios looks good, under device manager it shows them with no problem. But in Windows explorer I cannot see my slave HDD and in Nero burning software, it wont detect my cd-rw. Please help me!! I really appreciate it! I dont know what else to do, I have done everything I can, thanks in advance. -Robert

    try uninstalling nero and reinstalling
    if you are using nero 6 go into services and check the imapi cd burning is disabled
    the h/d the only thing i can suggest is delete it from the device manager reboot and let windows reinstall it

    also make sure that the cabling is right and that the jumpers are correct - if everything is the same as it was in 2k you should not be having conflicts. you can also try going into the bios and using the manual detect for all the ide devices. was nero the burning software that came with the cdrw? if so, go to the mfgr's site for the rw and get the latest version of nero as well as any firmware upgrade for the rw.
