I recently bought a Philips CD-RW 48/16/48.
When I was installing it I bumbed into a kind of dilemma... the Drive was correctly identified under Windows XP, but couldn't read any CD's. So I needed to install the CD-RW correctly first... but the installation program was ofcourse, on a CD. I was in the position that I did not currently have another CD-ROM in my computer.
I tried finding the installtion program/drives on the philips web site , but no luck (does anyone know if they are available for download). After a while I solved it by letting a friend share his CD-ROM over the network.
But now to my question... what will happen if I say want to re-install Windows XP? Will I be able to complete an installation? Since XP can't natively read with the CD-RW I'd guess not... and do I need to say that that would suck?
Have anyone heard of this before? I searched some on google and managed to find an article reviewing different CD-RW's that mentioned exactly this problem, but otherwise I've seen nothing about it.
Any help to shed light on this issue would be greatly appreciated!
