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.

Good Luck

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.

Did you run the diagnostic scan from the first link?
