New Hardware Detected

Why is it that every time I boot up, or do a restart, that Windows insists on finding "new" hardware that has been installed since upgrading to XP.

The hardware in question is my CD Writer, which according to Device Manager is recognised and working properly.

I have had no problems burning/copying CDs. It is just a pain in the backside having to click Cancel 3 times on every boot up when this "new" hardware is detected.

Hope somebody can help. TIA

I had this problem with ME in the breif period I had it installed before I decided it was about as desriable as Satan's testicles... kept detecting my printer, of all things. I think actually going through some of the steps of the install process helped, but I'd wait for one of the extraordinarily knowledgable people who seem to hang around here comes along with a much better fix before trying that :)

try choosing uninstall for the device, uninstall it completely, then re-install, that should stop the problem..if it doesn't i'm out of ideas :p

Tried uninstall and re-install. Problem persisting, but drive is working ok, so it would appear to have been been detected and installed via Plug and Play. Guess I'll just have to put up with it!
Thanks for assistance.

Problem solved (I hope!)
When usual New Hardware Detected message appeared, I installed drivers for a slightly different model of same manufacturer (TEAC) and this was accepted.
CD writer still working happily (and so am I now).

Many thanks for suggestions
