  1. not sure if i should post it here on in hardware.

    but i just noticed that in my computer i dont have my dvd rom drive and cdrw drive. when i try to click on a shortcut on desctop it only says "not found" what the hell is up with that? btw both of them are of cource in the computer.

    Not to insult you, but do you have a CD-ROM in the unit?
  3. no i dont have any cds in either of them. and what i am saying i dont even see the units in my windows. it's physically attached but i cant see it in my windows. also i can manually open dvd-rom , but when i click cdrw-rom open/close button nothing happens.
  4. This has happened to me before, and it was due to the aspi drivers. Either install the newest or download a program like nero, so it installs it for you.
  5. i do have latest almost latest nero version. and where do i get the latest aspi drivers?

    That will work fine. There is also a version 4.72 but some people have reported problems with it. It works fine for me.
  10. very strange, i did not install the ispi drivers, instead i just cold booted. and both cdroms work fine now. this is very weird

    If it happens again go into computer management/storage/disk management. If you can see them there just reassign the drive letter. My cd rom disappeared when I loaded something. Has only done it once.
  12. ok thanks if it happens again i'll try that. but as i said above, one of cdroms would even open at all. didnt even give any kind of lights when i pressed open button on it.
