  1. Hey I have just formated a computer and reinstalled the operating system
    but it will not detect the Drive and i dont understand why. i can't find drivers for it because there is nothing bigger i can put infomation on this a 1.44mb floppy. so Im kinda in a tight spot and wondering if anybody has any idea's.
    they would be helpful. :eek:

    Can you give us a clue as to what machine specs you have. For the moment I'd be inclined to check the settings in your BIOS, is the HD Auto detect (and if so, is it being found correctly) or is it user defined (and set correctly)????

    Is this computer a PC or a MAC? And is it a CD Rom problem like the subject of this post says or is it a hard drive problem? What operating system? What exactly is the problem?

    i had the same problem before, i did a clean install then found CD ROm wasnt there, so i just formated again and installed windows again and the second time it worked fine. I found this kinda weird.
