    If it was an upgrade, reformat your Hard Drive

    If your PC came that way, you'll probably lose most of your computer's drivers -

    It (XP) is the best thing in the world - why do you want to get rid of it ??

    If you used the XP upgrade and saved your old files when it asked you during the install, you can just uninstall Xp from the control panel(add-remove programs). It should work. If after doing so you have problems, then a re-format and install of the other Windows system will be needed as Pete suggested.

    Windows ME makes anything look good. What a travesty of an OS.

    WHAT!!!!

    Has somebody been winding you up or something?
    An optical that works under the others, but NOT XP?

    You are having us on, surely!!

    We are talking about Microsoft Windows XP, aren't we?

    Is it an external drive or something weird?

    ALL internal ATAPI drives are recognised by XP, automatically.

    Hello there "Doc",

    FYI, Whenever you post Nero's URL - you have to go back and click "edit" - you don't have to "edit" anything - it just straightens out your posted hyperlink :)

    Otherwise - -> en/nero6.html" class="korostus" target="_blank">

    Yea, that stuff follows you around :-(

    Bye, Bye -

    "P"

    Hiya Pete,

    Thanks for the tip, have done it....

    As you are well aware, I think Nero is flakey, looks like the form engine thinks so too, as even the hyperlinks to their site don't work right without jumping through hoops.

    ;)

    Byeeee...
