On the back of the hardware are jumpers
mine are located next to where the ribbon plugs in
there are 3 jumpers- like this : : :
the jumper must be on "cable" ( printed above post )
just move the jumper and reinstall
Now xp can find the 10401
I did it...it works

I have a HP External USB CD/DVD R/RW drive. Stopped working.


First, try a new USB cable. Two, try a different USB port (if using a hub, directly connect to the computer). Three, check if there are any updated drivers or firmware for the drive.

(also make sure that the external drive is self-powered that the cord is undamaged and the power isn't surging or going into a brown-out. If it is one of the new bus-powered DVD drives, make sure that the computer has a good power source (not on battery for a laptop).)

Computer will not recognized new dvd drive. Old one was broken and could not load software needed for new one. It only recognizes the old one. help


This suggests that the new drive either does not have power or the data cable isn't completely connected on one side or the other. Does the drive eject its tray when you press the button? That test confirms the power connection. Double check the data cable (consider replacing if it is seated properly); make sure it is fully seated and in the correct orientation.

You might have a bad SATA port, try other ports (if available) or a bad drive out of the box.

I hope this helps.

Hp 1040i xp problem


I'm not sure if this will help you but read this link I'm sending. I went round and round with 3 different highend motherboards and processors and kept getting error after error, everything I read in forums, the tech guys, everybody seemed to go to my memory as the problem but low and behold I wasn't believing them and my research paid off. Maybe the intel/hp problems I was having are related to yours. The acceleration software maybe. I dont know but you might want to give it go. I was a little shocked that my brand new dvd writer intel conflict would cause the blue screen of death. sorry so long but if this helps anyone I'll be glad. Thanks, great days to all, Dave http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00001705&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3422492&lang=en

NO sound


if you mean, no sound when playing a disc in the player, you may not have connected the audio lead into the back of the player to the CD1 connector on the motherboard, likewise, you may not need to connect it if you have, as some of the latest dvd players play the sound through the ide cable to the motherboard onboard sound, which may cause problems if you have a seperate sound card fitted. You can also run this to check drivers, click start>run, then type 'dxdiag' and press enter and go to the sound tab to check for faults
