Check the HCL to see if your CDROM is listed
Then check the manufacturers web site to see if they have drivers for the cd-rom to install under Windows XP
Mostly likely it is a compatibility issue
You used it to install XP,so check device manager and see if the controller and cd-rom are listed,then try reinstalling the cd-rom drivers

open your box up and check to make sure that the cd is connected, check both ends of the cable. They do work loose sometimes.
best of luck

I ran into a same problem. Check see if the CD-Rom is a SCSI, if it is make sure it is the SCSI drivers are updated for XP. The CD drive should pop back up in explorer and device manager after reboot.
