    Sorry, I have I-tunes installed and have reinstalled and that didnt resolve the problem.

    The olf Pioneer IDE DVD drive, I have now taken out, and installed a SATA DVD-RW. Windows finds the new hardware, but fails to install any drivers, saying they are corrupted. Do I have to do something special with a SATA drive?

Download/install Apple iTunes.
It loads a driver for CD-drives.
Reboot, and your CD-drive should work.

    If it's not a SATA drive try to set your IDE Controller in Device Manager to use DMA mode not the PIO. If it won't help try to find updated firmware for your drive and install it. Read Carefully Installation Manual Before! If it won't help that's a sign that your PC wants you to upgrade it with DVD/RW instead.
    Good Luck!

    I can't downgrade Vista to Xp

    You can install windows XP.
    First go to BIOS and change sata mode to IDE mode
    or option to disable SATA Native mode

    then choose mode to IDE or disable SATA Native mode
    then install windows XP

    If there is no option about change sata mode in BIOS.
    You should insert ahci driver to Windows XP CD using nLite

    read this
    you can use this driver

    Or you can install windows by inserting driver when setup prompted

    To install Windows XP with native SATA driver, perform the following steps:

    Boot the notebook PC.

    Insert the Windows XP installation CD into the optical CD/DVD drive.

    Press the F6 key when prompted

    Press the S key to specify the additional device.

    Insert the SATA driver disk into drive A. (using floppy disk drive)

    Follow the on-screen prompts.

    Or if both way is cannot be done

    i have the third way

    use an unattended XP installation disk
    you can download it from here:
    after you download
    burn the CD image to the CD/DVD
    then install XP using that CD/DVD

    My dvd rw is not detected

    Sounds like you need your manufacturer's SATA drivers.

    This problem exists a lot when installing Windows from scratch on SATA hard disks. When you start the installation, Windows prompts you to "load additional drivers". It's at this point you put a floppy disk with the SATA drivers in.

    If your install is already working, but just stopped as you say... then you could hunt around the BIOS for a SATA "compatibility" mode, which will get you booting straight away. Install the SATA drivers and you can then put the drive back into normal operation instead of compatibility mode.

    This is also the reason why your other hard disk with Windows can see the SATA disk and optical drive... it probably has the SATA drivers installed.

    Windows XP not recognizing cds/dvds in my HP DVD640i

    Most likely your CD-DVD burning software is corrupted. When that happens, the machine doesn't recognize the existence of the CD/DVD hardware. Clean up your machine, defrag, run a freeware registry cleaer-defragmenter (see C-net for a good one). Then Reinstall/upgrade your burning software (the Windows XP software is not sufficient) either from HP/Compaq, if it came with your machine, or the program website if you purchased it separately. You may find out which it is by using a marvelous freeware program called Belarc advisor.

    My dvd rw is not detected

    When installing SP2 version, you possibly corrupted the drivers for the DVD. It is possible there are different drivers for the DVD between XP and XP (sp2). Go to the laptop mfg website and download the newest drivers for the DVD.
