Question about Mad Dog Multimedia (MD16XDVD9) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner
Device manager on XP shows my CD and DVD drive not working properly (errror 22). I looked up error and says to uninstall and install drives again and I still have no luck following the directions. I went to Comp USA and bought a new internal DVD player and tried it w/ no luck. Same error as before. Also I tried a external drive and I am geting the same error. A friend suggested the power supply might be the problem coming in from mother board to drives. Any one have any other suggestions or think that could be it before I buy any other parts. Thnanks in advance. Peaace
Try a fresh install of windows, if this is the only cd/dvd drive and it's replacing the previous one look at the power requirement on the drives chances are they're gonna be the same but they might not be, so there is a chance that it's not the power supply, also check the jumper settings on the drive and make sure its set properly, do not use cable select, improper jumper settings and cable select can cause loss of functionallity in a device especially if its an ide/eide device, sometimes it will even cause the computer to not post or too post extremely slowly.

Tips for a great answer:
Verify you have the latest drivers installed for the CD-R or recordable drive. There are numerous driver related issues that may cause a CD-R drive or other recordable to stop reading a CD-R disc. If you are running Microsoft Windows verify your drive is properly detected and listed in Device Manage with no conflicts or errors.
If Windows Device Manager detects an error on the drive or if it has other drives listed in Device Manager with errors on them remove the device from Device Manager and reboot the computer to let Windows re-initialize the drive.
If Windows shows no errors, the above steps did not resolve the issue, or you are running a different operating system check with the drive manufacturer for updated drivers.

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
