IDE or SATA connections ??????
To enable CD burning for your computer is a relatively simple process in Windows XP.
All you need is a CD burner drive installed in your computer, the disk with the drivers and software that goes with it and an XP-loaded personal computer.
Once your driver is installed, the process is almost automatic.
Here are the steps you should follow to begin creating your own CDs.

Check your system requirements before installing the CD burner and make sure that your system can handle the speed and memory requirements of the drive.
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards
Turn off the computer, disconnect the power cord and remove the cover from the case.
Check the IDE cables inside your computer.
You may be able to connect the optical CD drive to the same ribbon cable as the hard drive if it is set up as a secondary or slave drive or to a separate ATA/IDE channel by a second cable.
Find an empty CD drive slot, remove the plastic cover from the outside, slide the drive in through the back and screw it in place.
If you are using a SATA CD burner, you'll need to connect the red SATA cable from the CD drive to the SATA connection on the motherboard or on your SATA drive controller card.
With SATA drives, you don't have to fool with jumpers.
Attach one end of the separate ATA/IDE cable to the motherboard if you have an IDE drive and the other to the back of the CD burner.
If slaving the drive, hook the drive to the second connection on the main hard drive cable to the burner drive.
If you do that, you'll have to set the jumpers on the CD drive to the "slave" position.
The drive's installation instructions will show you where the jumper pins are and how to set them to the slave position.
If using a separate IDE cable, just leave the jumpers in the factory setting.
If this is an older drive, you may have an analog audio cable as well that connects to the motherboard.
Follow the installation instructions for hooking it up.
Close the case and reconnect the power cord and other cables.
Turn on the computer and let it boot up.
Open the "My Computer" folder and make sure there is a new icon for the drive that you just installed.
XP will generally recognize it automatically, but if it doesn't you'll have to reboot the computer and open the CMOS setup program.
Follow the instructions for your particular PC to open the CMOS window.
Check the ATA channels to make sure both are enabled in setup and that, if you are using a master/slave setup, that the CMOS selections match that setup.

Reboot the system.
If the CMOS settings are correct, the XP operating system will set your drive so that it uses either digital CD playback (no audio cable) or analog playback (with audio cable). To check, open the "My Computer" window, choose "Properties" then "Hardware" then "Device Manager".
You'll see a "DVD/CD-ROM Drives" icon.

Click the plus sign next to DVD/CD-ROM Drives folder.
Click it, then right-click the icon for the new CD burner drive.
Now choose "Properties".
If you don't have an audio cable, left click on the selection box for "Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device".

Insert the CD burner software disk that came with your CD burner.
Insert the disk that came with the drive into the CD drive and install the software following the prompts.
If the drive doesn't come with CD burner software, Windows XP comes with a lite version of Roxio's Easy CD Creator that detects blank CDs.
Just insert a blank CD in the burner and XP offers you a "burn CD" option when you have autoplay set up for the CD-drive.

There are lots of freeware burning software on the internet.

Do you know if the software for the burner is accepted by windows 7, and does the computer recognize the burner as being installed ?

Maybe i need driver hp workstation z800 windows


Windows XP and Vista have built-in support for reading/writing CD/DVD disks -- you don't need a "device-driver" at all.

If you want FREE software to make it easier to collect files and burn CD/DVD disks, access http://www.MajorGeeks.com
and download 'AShampoo Burning 6', and install it.

Do i need a driver to burn dvd's after reinstalling windows xp? i did have to download a sound driver Compaq SR1250nx


Hi,

If your DVD Drive is compatible with Windows XP you will not need to install driver. You can contact the manufacturer to check it whether your DVD Writer is supported by windows XP operating system. (Or you can check the manual for it).

If it is not supported, then you need to install the right driver of CD/DVD Burner for your operating system after reinstalling the Windows XP.

Hope this helps.

If you would like to vote for the answer, this will help the others to see the similar problems solved and also will be a satisfaction factor for me to continue helping you.

All the best.

Emprex cd burner/model # USB 5232Ul/install cd


Most times, you can plug the drive into a USB port and Windows will detect the device and assign a drive letter to it. If it does, the CD burning software should then be able to see it. Try googling the burner company name and model number if Windows continues seeing the drive as an unknown device.

Cd burner


Double check that you have plugged in both the power adapter & the IDE or SATA cable. Windows XP will display a CD icon even if one does not exist.

If that does not work return the CD-ROM
