Please can someone help? Everything has worked out well with my "downgrade" from Vista to XP on my Inspiron 1721, but now I can't see the DVD drive and there is nothing even in the device manager. If I put my XP install disk in, it works, but I can't see the drive once XP is installed. Help!

Figured it out. I had ATI IDE Controllers as well as Standard; disabled Standard, and voila the DVD drive is there.
