Have bought one of these external DVD rewriters off Ebay but my computer does not recognise it. I run Windows XP. Does this mean the machine is a dud ? Power is getting through and it's plugged into my USB hub.
Refresh all usb ports. Windows key+ Pausebreak/hardware/Device Manager/now uninstall everything under usb and reboot,xp will find and install the drivers. All being well,if the drive is plugged in,windows will recognise this.
