code 10 dual fifo error

 I partitioned my hard drive and put Win98 on the C: drive and WinXP Pro on the D drive.  The problem is that when I boot into Win98 the computer does not see my CD-Rom drives.  WinXP sees them and the BIOS sees them, so why doesn't Win98 see them?  The device manage says I have a code 10 dual fifo error. Also it says something about MS-DOS compatiblity paging reduces system performance.  Any ideas on how to fix this problem?  Would converting the XP file structure from the FAT32 to NTFS help?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is what Microsoft says about that device manager code value:

Code 10
If the device has a "FailReasonString" value in its hardware key, that string is displayed as the error message. The driver or enumerator places this registry string value there. If there is no "FailReasonString" in the hardware key, the following generic error message is displayed:

This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10)

Try upgrading the device drivers for this device.

Solution button: Update Driver

To resolve this error code, make sure the device is connected to the computer correctly. For example, make sure all cables are plugged in fully and that all adapter cards are properly seated. Follow the suggested solution button and update the device driver. It may be possible to remove the device and redetect it using the Add New Hardware wizard.
