Since installing XP My DVD drive does not work and I have to load everything through my CD-RW.
Its a Creative pc-dvd 5x. In device manager it is listed as Creative DVD5240E-1. Is this because it is not compatable with XP ?.
Device manager says that it is working ok.:confused:

Creative DVD 5X (DXR2) is not compatible with XP. It won't even run in compatibility mode.

I think that you are getting confused here, the Dxr2 will not work without a doubt - there is no driver for it, but the 5x DVDROM should work - thats the drive that I am using myself.
My best suggestion is to check you r hardware connections and your bios settings (or updates) - there is not a problem with the drive itself.

Yes, maybe I stated it wrong. I am using the drive , also. It's just the DXR2 card and DVD Encore that are incompatible.

Thanks for replying guys. Hardware connections are ok, but what bios settings do I look at ?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
