I have a Philips Jackrabbit external cdrw but the computer does not recognise when booting up. I have to take out the power plug and put it back in again before it recognises it.

I want to re-format my hard drive and re-install Windows XP and so I need to have the machine recognise the external cd rom after starting it up with a start up disk.

Anyone got any help?
