CD-ROM doesn't work in XP

I upgraded a PC from WinME to XP, Both CD-ROM drives will work at the BIOS level (I loaded xp from it), but now my Lite-On 4835 CD-ROM does not see disks.  MY LG CD-RW works fine.  Both are visable in the Device manager, neither shows an error.  I have tried switching from CSL to Sl/MA setup and back, and nothing makes a difference. There locations show up as 0 (0) for the CD-ROM and 1 (1) for the LG. any ideas?

Make sure Jumper configurations are correct, I have seen them do weird things like that if those are set wrong. Even if you have checked, Double Check, they can sometimes both show up in the BIOS and Windows but be wrong, therefore causing the problem.

This is a clean install. So those aren't a player.  FYI I threw in a samsug DVD player and it works fine.  Any other ideas? Maybe I should just toss the drive!

Try it in another machine - if it fails there, it's very likely the drive is no good.  They do fail with time, because they are mechanical devices.

or some CDs recorded at low speeds (8x maximum)

Try removing your other drive and puting the  Lite-On on a different cable.  I would try waht Callandor said also.  As a last resort, try upgreading the firmware, which for some reasone migh not be playing nice with XP.  Good luck!
