DVD Player/Recorder and CD ROM player not recognized

[qanda]This thread is about the Philips DVD Player/Recorder. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]The Model of my Philips DVD Recorder/Player is SPD2413P. My operating system is Windows XP Professional. I also have an LG CD/ROM Player. For some reason the system does not recognize them. The Device Manager says both are OK. Grateful for any help that will solve my problem. :bow

Try removing/deleting both drives in Device Manager and rebooting. You may also need to remove/delete all of the IDE controllers in Device Manager and reboot. Aside from that, try reseating the cables (both ends).
