I have changed the jumpers on dvd writer, my BIOS can now detect it but unable to load the provided drivers from the cd. it is automatically loading a default one from windows xp which is not compatible. the device manager shows a yellow question mark against the loaded driver. It is an IDE DVD writer please help .

Put the jumpers back to "Master" on your dvd writer..

Select "Master" on the Dvd/Cd drive jumper. Then reboot your computer, this should make your DVD/CD drive work correctly.
More info on your DVD/CD drive would be helpful, you can download the drivers from the maker of the device.
