    My CD-RW drive and DVD drive are not working. I think I mistakenly deleted a file for them. I have tried uninstalling them and installing them back but they still don't work. They don't show up in the My Computer section. What should I do? How do I wipe them and get good drivers again?

    -Thank You.

    Did you check your BIOS settings?

    CD-ROMs, DVD-ROMs, and CD-R/RWs normally dont need a Windows driver to function properly. Check your BIOS settings, that it detects the drives and that the IDE controllers are enabled. Also check the physical cable and power connections.

    If you don't know it is probably best not to go in there.

    But if you do this is how>
    At bootup you will see a screen saying DEL. When you do hit enter. Becareful.
