My dell 8200 XP/SP2 has the CD/DVD drive listed under "Unknown" category
within System/Hardware/Device Manager. It works fine, but aside from
re-installing XP from scratch, is there a way to fix this problem?

Hi Charles,

Update the driver for it. Try going through Windows Update and see if
there's one for it.

Hope this helps,
Newtechie
