Windows XP doesn' recognise my new NEC Optiarc DVD drive AD-5170A-01

Hi, I’m new to this forum and hope someone can help.

I have just replaced a DVD reader on my PC with the DVD- RW drive NEC Optiarc AD-5170A-01 but my OS does not recognise it.
When I look in Device Manager or My Computer it only shows my TEAC CD-RW drive.
I gather from some previous threads that a possible solution is to remove the lower and upper filters in the registry. I have done this but it made no difference.

Please if anyone can help, I would be grateful.

Does the drive have power? Can you open and close the tray, etc?

Also, how is the drive connected? Primary Master, Primary Slave, Secondary Master, Secondary Slave, etc?

Hi, Thanks for prompt reply.
I had forgotten to check the slave /master config.
Now done and all seems ok for the moment.
Thanks again.
