WIndows XP won't install/ recognise new hardware
Ok firstly can you see the DVD drive in BIOS or any USB Devices Within Bios ?
If yes , we have just solved your problem to both your USB and DVD Drive problems , it being windows , it is failing to communicate device anomalies and is failing to handle device operations.
If the answer was no , you most probably have a faulty motherboard and the problem in question is most likley the south bridge , this is responsible for handling plugged in devices , IDE devicesUSB controller etc.. and communicating with the CPU
On another note in windows you could try one of two things:
1. Completly remove existing drivers , including the chipset and USB control drivers and reinstalling them , then rebooting and trying it all again
2. Reinstall the Windows OS and test your devices once more
I Hope this will solve your issues
Thanks , and please dont forget to rate :D
