nope that didnt work either. its not a cable issue either cuz my old drive when put back will still work. and the 2nd dvd drive always worked till i unplugged it and put the new drive in all by itself.
so im gonna hook the old dvd player drive back up and leave this "new" disfunctional sony in also until maybe someone figures out what is wrong.
its really making me angry.

my old one....nothing. i ran roxio but it expired now i think. i had a crack that never had a problem with but then there was an update and it asked me for more than just the code and well im ****ed with that program.
i cant just take this as a $40 loss.

I hadn't heard of this as a problem, but could it be an IRQ conflict?I know PnP should keep this from happening, but just wondering.Is there a driver disk?I'd totally try cable select.It fixed a problem I had with a generic cd-rw/dvd drive.

which version did you have with that roxio

versions before 6 cause all kind of problems with xp (direct cd was the culprit)

insouciant was saying

you have 2 way to hook up cd roms
1.master, slave (MA,SL)
2.Cable Select (CS)

I too had situation where my drive, were not being recognized. and switching from 1 to 2 or vise versa fix the problem
