CD Recording software that comes with HP and Compaq computers is made to recognize only the original CD and DVD drives. If a new CD or DVD writable drive was added, use the software that came with the drive or purchase and use new CD writing software. If you are using Windows XP, you can use Windows XP itself to create CDs (not DVDs). \015\012\015\012\015\012CD or DVD drive is not recognized by Windows\015\012If the drive is missing in Windows, remove all connected USB, firewire, and parallel devices and perform the following steps to enable the drive in Windows:\015\012\015\012Step 1: Checking for CD/DVD drive in BIOS \015\012Make sure the drive appears in Setup.
