None of the posted solutions worked for me to install Pablo in my computer with Win XP.I have the CD-ROM with the software, but it's not allowed to install,even if I change the compatibility to Win 95. The links provided are also for the old drivers. Would it work with just the Windows drivers?
Thank you in advance!
I have found a site with the drivers for both PC and Mac: "http://www.jecarter.us/mwbt/#pablo". He also has a diagram for converting the Pablo interface to USB for us DIY's!! Just D/L the driver-zip, unzip it to an empty folder. In the folder, locate SETUP.EXE and start it. It should do the trick. I usually note devices should be plugged in after the driver is installed, sometimes after a restart. If the install fails, plug in the Pablo. If Windoze finds it, good. Point the driver search to the folder where you unzipped the Pablo files in. If Windoze doesn't find it, do a manual install and use the "Add new hardware device" in Control Panel. Point Windoze driver search to the folder where you unzipped the Pablo files in.

Put the genuine Microsoft CD-ROM disk into your CD-ROM drive.
Restart your computer.
As soon as it starts, look for a message like "press Fxx to temporary change boot-order".
Press that key.
Select to boot from you CD-ROM drive.
This will start to install Windows, by reading from the CD-ROM drive.
Check you'r jumpers ei master slave. and all cables are hooked up right, power hook up are fully in. you may have to up date win xp. sp 2-3 so on. enter cotroll panel. system. hardware tab. device manager. look under dvd/cd-rom drivers if they are listed there 1st try to update the drivers. if that don't work then uninstall all of the dvd/cd roms listed there. then restart you'r computer. on the re start win xp install wis. shold find the roms and install them and update them. if that don't work you'll have to call the microsoft free help line. this is what they had me do when I had the same problem. you may in the end have to wipe and re install window, sorry to say. hope this helps you
On eMacines, the recovery partition contains your driver and software. But you needed to create the recovery cd set when you got your computer.
To restore it,if your computer came with XP, borrow an Win XP cd (cannot be a HP,Dell etc).
Try a repair first:
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just reinstall the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If a repair does not work, do a complete install. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
Check the disk for scratches, and try other disks to make sure the problem is not unique to that one disk. If all disks fail, then double-click on My Computer, then double click on the CD-Rom drive and see if a CD will run. The "autorun" option may have been disabled, which is very noticeable if you've been used to this feature working. To re-enable autorun, right click on the cd-rom drive in My Computer, and go to device properties - recheck the autorun or autoplay option.
If none of the above resolve, then turn off your computer. Open up your computer with screwdriver. Unplug and replug the cd-rom driver. Restart computer. Test cd-rom drive again.
If it still fails, Make sure you are connected to the internet (I am assuming Windows XP - Vista may vary): Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Printers & Other Hardware --> System --> Hardware --> Device Manager --> DVD/CD Rom Drives - se if the drive has a yellow exclamation by it - if it does, then right click on the yellow exclamation, and click install drivers - windows will most likely find a solution
If all of the above fails, write back with more details, including model/manufatcurer of cd-rom drive, and model/manufatcurer of computer.
Suggest you back up you're personal data to either a CD/DVD or mem stick.
Windows in general will not allow you to downgrade. It does not matter what version you have. If you put your windows CD in your CD-ROM & boot the Win XP CD you will have to format the hard drive. Only than will windows XP install. Everything on your PC will be erased. If you’re sure this is what you want than put your Win XP CD into your CD-ROM & restart your PC. You should see; to boot to the CD press any key......(Press the space bar). Win XP should start to load. If windows does not start to load, restart your PC & press the F8 key every two seconds. This should bring up a boot menu, use your up & down arrow keys & highlight the CD-ROM drive than press enter. Windows will begin to install. Choose format when shown on your screen. If you choose to re-install windows you will end up with double folders & that is no fun.
If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing went.
Check the SATA/RAID controller setting.
It could have been set to [Disabled]
Refer to your user?s manual for a detailed description on how to enable the onboard SATA/RAID controller by adjusting the jumper or BIOS settings.
