No drivers required for that drive in XP.
How is the drive jumpered? Try Cable Select (CS) and then reboot. Result?

Last week my cdrw drive was left open and someone broke it with their knee. I went out and bought a new internal drive for $34 called "I/O Magic". The instructions say the drivers will be installed when I reboot, no software disc needed.
I removed the broken drive (taking photos of every move I made and I marked all 3 cables needed). I then installed the new drive. It opened and closed and the light came on. I then went to "My Computer" and the drive was not there. I put an audio disc in to see if it played and it didn't. I then went to I/O magics website and by it's appearance, I didn't expect much. I found drivers for this drive, downloaded and nothing. They recomended I restart in safe mode and it wouldn't. I removed he new drive and am now wondering if there's something I missed or shold have tried. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.
