Hey what happened! I installed roxio's EZCD 5.1 platinum with no luck now i have lost my 2 cd drives from the system! in the hadware manager it says there is a problem with the drivers for both drives, but when I try to reinstall the drivers or even roll back the drivers it says I already have the most current drivers! (What the heck!) or there is no driver to fall back on! Sigh .... Even removing the software has not helped.. I even Re-installed XP ! no suck luck! and yes I tried removing the drives and reinstalling them and still no such luck, system restore had no effect either.. CRAP! what kind of OS looses the CDROMS ??? I havent tried hacking the registry to see if the prob is there yet, but hacking it may cause more trouble than its worth... This is the first major problem that my system has ever had that has stumped me! (yes my antivirus is up to date) the BIOS can see and will boot from a CD if I let it but what happened to XP?
