    Hiya tried to do a quick Google and NTFS search for a firmware update because this drive E-IDE CD-ROM CR-854E is having problems in XP. It can't read anything for some reason. I assume the firmware isn't supported by XP. Could someone please guide me in the rite direction please.

    From my knowledge, firmware support was only an issue with Cd/ cdrw drives in previous versions of Windows, as XPnow supplies its own generic drivers to compensate firmware issues.
    If XP drivers dont recognise your Cd drive , maybe it is more than 2 to 3 years old and not supported.
    Have a look at the XP hardware compatibility chart.
