In my first post awhile back on this forum I had trouble installing my new CD-RW cause Windows XP did not install it correctly and I couldn't read any CD's until I managed to run the installation CD from a borrowed CD-ROM.
Now I just tried to do a re-installation of Windows XP, but got stuck in phase 1: Booting from the CD.
I know for a fact that this CD is bootable and it working. During the startup process the CD-device is also scanned for any bootable media (if I eject the CD at this time and re-insert it the procedure hangs for a couple of seconds when it scans the CD in the CD-RW, so there's nothing wrong with the bios settings).
What should I do? Are there any firmware updates I could try with? Something is seriously wrong if I need drivers for it to function as a CD-ROM, won't you agree?
