Why does my laptop think my DVD drive is an external drive? Anytime I read reboot my dell
E 6400 it tells me that I can safely remove my DVD drive. I had to reinstall windows and I lost all of my drivers I finally got all the drivers back in and I have the newest Matbleepa DVD drive driver but it still shows up every day as safely remove.

When you reinstalled XP did the disc include SP1?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Reboot into Safe Mode, and go to Device Manager and remove the SATA Controller but do not remove the device driver files from the computer and reboot.
