    I reinstalled Windows XP on Pentium 4 computer the computer has a Samsung DVD multilayer CD-R/W drive at least so I think. When I go into the BIOS the computer shows the drive as a CD\DVD ROM. But now that I have re-installed Windows, it shows up as a CD-ROM in My Computer and Device Manager.Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thank you,

    • Uninstall the drivers listed in Device Manager which relate to your CD Drive.
    • Search google for drivers specific to your CD/DVD model and download said drivers.
    • Reboot your PC
    • Install the new drivers.
    Should work. :)

    maybe the guy who designed the manufacturers web site is a slow typist or died whilst typing about the drive, but just managed to upload the page before he took his last breath:D:twisted:
