Lite-on drive

my new lite-on drive ltr-48246s isnt reconized by my os,which is xp pro, it is enabled in the bios ,funny thing is when i go to put a disk in , windows doesn’t even seem to see it , but i can burn a cd with it ,i have burned about 5 disk so far and no peoblems, i have tried using the add hardware fuction under control panel, but to no avail, can still burn cd’s though , thanks for any help

In device manager, remove the IDE controller (channel) that the drive is on and reboot.

thanks alot , i did that and it came out perfect and thanks again for the quickness of the reply:bigsmile:
