    I have recently installed XP Professional onto my partitioned hard-drive(the other side has Win98se)but cannot seem to get it to recognize my cd drive...i have attempted to load the software for the Asus 50x cd player but to no avail...I have tried from Win98(where I had to install the OS from)and I have attempted to boot up with the player software...does not work...control panel and system information(hardware)does not show it even installed...
    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Also,when booting up my computer,i have the option of which OS I want to use...when I choose XP it takes a long long time to load up...I cannot find anything anywhere that would cause this ridiculously long boot up...
    Win98se takes a fraction of the time...
    Once again,suggestions?
    thanks in advance

    Does your motherboard have UATA Drive controllers?

    If it does, then XP may not correctly function if you didn't load the drivers at the start of the installation. Also, if you're running a 3rd party controller, such as a Promise Controller, the drivers needed to be loaded during setup as well.

    It appears that I do have Asus Promise Ultra100 IDE controller...
    now, you mentioned that it should have been loaded up during setup...is it possible to somehow load it up after setup?
