SATA DVD Writer not detected in XP

  1. I just purchased a Pioneer DVR-212D SATA and my SATA1 and SATA2 are set on non-raid. My bios detects that there is a DVD in SATA1 (where i connected the red ribbon) but in windows it doesnt show under Devices with Removable Storage section. I have Windows XP. Theres power going to the DVD writer and it detects in BIOS, so do i have to do something in Windows? or continue fiddling with BIOS? I have a CD burner on IDE and the DVD burner on SATA1

    Motherboard: ASRock P4VM890

    Please help....

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok i just updated my chipset and now it detects the DVD writer, so the problem was my chipset.

    I apologize to those who felt they've waisted their time in trying to figure what was wrong...

    Hope people learn from these newb problems/solutions
