Dvd writer not working with XP

  2ayoil 17:10 27 Feb 2005

I have been using win98 and have now put XP on a seperate hard drive and am running a duel boot system. Problem is that the Sony dvd rewriter DW-U18A which works fine under 98 will not work under XP. It recognises it but says there is a problem with the registery entery. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it will not have it. Any ideas for a solution please.

I assume you have uninstalled it in device manager then restarted the computer?

Uninstalled, in device manager. Then reinstalled without restart inbetween.

do not unplug the device

Uninstall in device manager and then re-boot into XP
