Default Error 41, and then some.

I've recently moved a WIN XP Home installation from an older PC to a new Biostar 220K box. Need to keep the old installation because I've got tons of legacy work.

I was able to read an old DVDROM first time I booted the machine, but next time I tried, it was dead. Then the NEC 4570 DVD burner I'd ordered arrived, and when I tried that, I got the ERROR 41 problem. Thanks for all who identified the Upperfilters/Lowerfilters thing; I zapped an Upperfilters value (found no Lowerfilters) and that seemed to fix the drive. But alas, no. I tried to install WinDVD and it reports a fatal error, "This is not a qualified machine".

Putting in either DVD-r or CD-r media, I get "D:\ is not accessible. Incorrect function".

I see an old registry item for Adaptec Easy CD Engine; I believe I had a SCSI board way back with a Plextor burner, both long since gone, along with a couple other CDROMs identified in controlset1 and controlset3. I don't see any software to remove for Easy CD or anything like that.

Should I surrender and be happy that I can still use this old XP=home-upgraded-from-win98-now-ported-to-a-second-new-machine installation, and just do burns on my current machine? Or is there hope?
