Typically these drives don't need an extra driver, as windows detects them automatically. The first thing I'd recommend trying is to right click it's entry with the exclamation mark and uninstall it. Once uninstalled, reboot the pc. It should install correctly then. If it doesn't, there may be an issue with the IDE controller it's connected to (usually a bios setting determining raid/ide mode).
Check to make sure the red and white plugs are in the same av3 area as the yellow video plugs. On some TVs it is close together with av1 or 2 and not well marked. Also check the connector at the CD end. Hope that's all it is. Let me know if I can help more if it's not the solution:)
XP home should automatically detect and install the device.

There are a few concerns here:- if the drive has been virused, it may have been instructed to shut-down or corrupted the Drives Logical Board.
If you go to My Computer/Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager.
See if your drive is recognised There, DVD/CD Rom Drives.
If it isn,t Click the small screen icon, top of page " Scan for hardware Changes " this should detect the drive if it,s recognisable by the system.
If it is, right click/Properties. And see if the device has any conflicts ( usually noticed by a yellow Triangle/exclamation Mark. Or drivers not installed.
Failing this, you can go into the systems Bios Screen. F2 at bootup. and see if the device is visible in there. And whether it,s enabled.
If none of this works, please mail back here.

So I had the same thing and I was pretty upset because Walmart wouldn't take it back! So, I don't know what inspired me to do this, but I simply switched the yellow and black plugs that go in between the screens. So plug the yellow connector into the black hole on both screens and then the black connector into the yellow holes. Now it works perfect. It still doesn't work if I try to switch it back. Weird, but you might as well give it a shot, it worked for us!
Using the composite video connection method is pretty straightforward. you will be dealing with one video cable (marked in Yellow), and two audio cables (marked in White and Red) Red is right channel and white is left channel if stereo, if mono use the white marked cable.
Look at the back of your DVD player you will see the video out RCA jack (marked in yellow) plug one end of the video cable into this jack, the plug the other end of the cable into the TVs Video In jack (marked in yellow)
Then plug the audio cables into the Audio Out RCA jacks of the DVD player Red marked cable to red jack White Marked cable to white jack. After this is done plug the ends of the sother side of the cable into the Audio input of the TV white to white, red to red.
At this point you should have video and audio once you set the menu of your tv to accept input from the Composite input and the audio jacks.
I hope this helps.
