yay! first post. please help. I recently freshly reinstalled XP pro w/ SP2 and suddenly it has completely stopped recognizing my external burner. I have yet to find why. All of my other devices are recognized fine. I previously had the upgrade version of XP, upgraded from 2K and I had no issues. To my knowledge there should not be any need for any special files and whatnot in order to use this burner. I have not changed anything physically to the computer since reinstalling either. The only thing special is that my computer is normally used with the asian languages options. Please help me solve this annoying problem it's wasting valuable burning time -_-' I've read through the other threads here but they mostly talked about internal burners, but it seems that this is a rather common issue.
