I have an HP CD-Writer 9100.
The Bios detects it properly, but my problem is that whenever I boot up or re-boot, Windows XP won't auto-detect it and it disappears from My Computer.
However, if I go into Device Manager and tell it to scan for new hardware...BOOM...There it is... HP CD-Writer 9100...and there it appears in My Computer.
If I re-boot....pffft...gone again.
It's a nuisance having to tell Device manager to find it every time.
I'm running an ECS K7S5A mobo with latest bios,
AMD Athlon T-Bird 1200,
512 MB ram,
RIVA TNT2 M64 Video,
On board Sis7012 Audio and On board Lan.
Can anyone help?



:rolleyes:

Thanks for reply.
When I tell device manager to scan for hardware changes...it finds HP CD-Writer 9100.
Under Driver properties it's listed as Stnandard CD/DVD Rom with Microsoft Diver Version 5.1.2535.0 just as you mentioned.
Can You Help?:(

I have the same HP-9100 and had this same proble like 1 and a half years ago with windoze 2000, when it first came out. The exact same problem. Sorry I dont remember how I fixed this problem, but I did e-mail their support department and they knew what the problem was. Hope this helps, good luck
