I just installed the AD-7421S and my mouse won't work in Winxp, but works fine in Win7. Both operating systems are installed in my computer but on different hard drives.
Are there unique BIOS settings required for this burner to work in Winxp?
The default BIOS settings I have are:
PIO Mode: 4
Async DMA: Multword DMA-2
Ultra DMA: Ultra DMA-5

Wait, both your drive and your mouse don't work within XP? Sounds like you need to update the motherboard's drivers to me (for your XP installation, not the Windows 7 one).

I have resolved my problem with the mouse not moving in xp. I booted xp and initially did not get any mouse pointer movement, but after letting the system run for a few minutes, the mouse suddenly came to life. I'm not sure why it was frozen before, but I'm happy that's it's moving again.
