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 ?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
