Greetings, folks. I hope this is the right place. My DVD Rom AND DVD RW Drives are not present in WinXP "My Computer". They appear in "Device Manager" with a yellow exclamation mark and the message: "Windows could load the drivers for this device...". Ive tried uninstalling them and letting windows find them and reinstall with no help. Both drives DO appear in the system boot page (POST Screen), they DO appear in BIOS as "Primary IDE Master" and Secondary IDE Slave" and they both DO appear and function in Win Vista. (Dual Booting With XP). They are older devices, (DVDRom/Lite-On LTD163D), (DVDRW/Lite-On LDW-811S, but do function properly when I boot into Vista. I updated the firmware/driver for BOTH ABOUT 1 MONTH BACK, The Rom from GHR2 to GHR8L. The RW from FS06 to HS0R (Was 411S Now 811S). Both worked great in XP after this and still work in Vista, I cant think of anything that may have caused this!
Should I just toss these drives and update?
Thanx much for any help!
