    I have a problem with BootCamp.

    No matter how many WinXp CD's I insert it does not recognise any of them. When I click Start Installer it just tells me to "Insert CD and wait while it is recognised". I have tried 3 different WinXP CD's and none seem to work. I have tried each one of these in Parallels and they work flawlessly.

    Does anyone have any idea?

    Don't bother with Boot Camp Assistant then. Just put in the Windows CD, restart and hold down the Option key. The boot selector will allow you to choose to boot from the Windows CD.
