I just had my system running for almost 2 weeks straight w/o a reboot I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but I noticed on the last day, that my burner was no longer recognized, not even by the BIOS at startup. So I install some 'cd burner' fix from Windowsupdate and BOOM! my other cdrom is gone too. But, that cdrom is recognized by the BIOS at startup. So I installed the EZ cd creator XP fixes and still nothing. WTF is going on? I have all my BIOS settings set to AUTODETECT and I haven't opened my box in months and didn't rattle the case or anything. HELLLLLLLLLLP!
