Site:tomshardware com q & a Forum for win Xp

I have Windowa xp media center 2005. recently I wanted a fresh re-install on my hard drive. When I go into setup to change the boot sequence, only the cd and hard-drive are recognized, not the cd/dvd player. (the re-installlation disc is a dvd). when I scroll down to the drives it shows all the drives by name except the cd/dvd drive which is shown as a generic cd/dvd. Any Suggestions?
