It will recognise the cd after the first boot up. But after that i can change the cd and it(windows XP) still thinks that it is the first CD i put in. When i try to browse using explorer it come up with error msg: Error reading device.

Can anyone help me?

Adding to that - remove it from device manager and reboot for it to reinstall...(Start-Run->Devmgmt.msc)
