having trouble getting my dvd writer installed. it's a pioneer k05 slim slot load laptop dvd burner. i manually installed it into my laptop (to test, i don't have the rest of my carputer yet.) windows (xp) won't recognise that there is a disk drive in there at all. the dvd drive didn't come with any drivers or anything, and it is new. it's getting power and accepts and ejects disks fine. i tried uninstalling the old drive from the device manager so windows could recognize new hardware, which it did. however, when it recognized the new hardware, it recognized it as my old disk drive, not the one that was actually in there. if put the old one in, it works fine. any help is greatly appreciated...and yes i've tried searching both this forum and google for a few hours already. sorry if this is a total noob problem but i just want to get this working so i know it works. thanks
