A friend & I both have the same type of system. Xp Home on ASUS motherboard with Duo Cure 2.1Ghz processor. He has 1 Gig DDR2, I have 2 Gig. Both PCs have a current model Pioneer DVD burner. On either PCs XP does not seem to see the Drive when a blank CD is inserted ( I'm referring only to CDR-W as DVD-W are not apparently fully supported under XP) as no prompt for action is displayed. If we try dragging a file onto the optical drive icon it comes up with a statement that "x: is not accessible Incorrect Function." Yet, reading is no problem and burning on CD or DVD in Nero is fine. Turning on and selecting an action in Autoplay is not working. With removal drives or floppies the alerts are all working as expected. We are unable to burn audio tracks in the latest MS Media Player. If we put an audio CD in it does activale media player and autoplay the first track. Any ideas, please?
