Re: Cd burner says its not connected

Go to the Control Panel System HardWare and then Device manager Delete the CD burner and restart the computer. The Xp is supposed to find the device and reinstall it If this fails you will need the driver provided by Hp - unfortunately it is nopt available to download from the Hp website but you can order it by mail Good Luck
