I have completed downgrading a Dell M1330 from Vista SP1 to XP SP3. I have installed all of the necessary drivers except for the biometric fingerprint reader. Everything seems to be working fine except the DVD/CD Drive. When I tried to load Office 2007 it makes a short buzzing noise and doesn't began the install. It will play audio cds but makes a loud noise during playback. The Drive is a Matshita DVD+RW UJ-857G. It is possible this is not related to the downgrade but I am curious if anyone has had similar symptoms.
