System not recognizing cd/dvd drive
Jun 11, 2010, 3:28 PM
I formated and reinstalled Windows XP home edition on my Dell Demension V400. Now the system does not recognize the cd/dvd drive. Worked before. What am I missing?

Install the driver of your CD/DVD.

The default windows driver will work just fine. Try running this diagnostic scan.
If that doesn't help, try deleting the upper and lower filters in the registry.
