Installation problem



I have a dell 8200 with windows XP home.
Lite-on ltr-24102m CDR-CDRW
TDK indiDVD+/-RW/CD burner 440N
I can’t get XP to recognize these 2 drives. I’ve been screwing with this for a week, anybody have the solution?


Do they show up in device mgr??? If they do un-install them, shut down and re-boot. Windows should pick them up when you re-start. Double check your IDE cables connections and yoru power supply connections. If all else fails I’d start doing System restores. Did you just instal these drives?? Or are these what came with the sys.
