Can't Get DosBox To Work

I'm trying to get my Hyper 3dPinball to work but I'm having
problems. I use to have it installed before I had to get my hard drive replaced but I can't get it to work now.
I followed all the tutorials and do everything it says but I get a message saying no cd drives present when I'm finished.
I even installed an older version of DosBox that the website said works with Hyper 3dPinball but it still doesn't work.
Can anyone help with this????

Information

Hi, first of all a few questions.

1. What type of computer is it?

2. What are the specs of the computer\laptop? eg...ram, operating system version, hard drive, security software, etc... Yes, this makes a difference.

3. When you reinstalled, did you use an OEM disk? Did you get another Windows version? Is it a legit Windows copy?

Thanks

Drivers

Ok, you say you have SP2, I suggest first downloading ALL needed updates for XP HOME. When you say no CD drives present, are you sure the drive is being detected or, if someone installed the hard drive for you, even hooked up the drive? Look in C:, see if the drive is listed, or look in Device Manager to see if listed. Whoever put your hard drive in, may not have set the jumper correctly. If not properly set, this can cause issues with CD\DVD drives or other devices. Even if the CD\DVD drive has power, does not mean the IDE or SATA cable is attached or correctly either. I would definitely check these things. If you need help, let me know.

Got Game To Run But

Someone gave me a link on how to install the game with DOSBOX and the game works fine
after installing but if I shut down DOSBOX and bring it up to play the game it now gives me a message saying "COULD NOT INSTALL UNVIBE" and the game won't load up.
Anyone know how to fix this problem????
