Just installed new Sony DVD Re-writer But on boot up into winxp home the dvd is not in My computer. When i go to Device manager its there but with an exclamation mark against it, does this suggest a problem finding the drivers? I Have tried other rom drives known to work and the same thing happens, all connections are secure and the jumpers are set to master Any ideas please

Are you using the correct type of cable, i.e. are you using a 40 wire cable when it needs 80 ?
Just a thought.

Thanks for that. The connections look the same to me. The old cd rom that i have had to replace is not seen either. If the data cable was wrong it would not be seen in device manager would it?
