|My pc is a P4 1.3GHz, XP Home SP2. It came with a PioneerDVD-ROM-116R (G-drive) and a SonyCD-RW CRX140E (E-drive) . The SonyCD-RW failed some time ago, so I recently "uninstalled" it thru Device Manager. Then, I swapped it out with a Hitachi LG GWA-4165B (H & L GWA-4165B) OEM that I scavenged from a 4-5 yr old Gateway pc. When I re-started the system, it didn't notice/advise "New Hardware Found..." for the DVD-RW that I just installed. Also, neither of the drives show up in My Computer , and neither are listed in the Windows System utility. |
