A friend of mine upgraded about 1month ago on her old 98 box to windows 2000. All went well cept the cd drive is not reconized by windows. Well its reconized but it doesn't read any disc she puts in the drive. It is detected on boot and everything so this is where i am lost, wouldn't windows have just a generic driver for the cdrom or would it even need a driver? also any ideas on how solve this problem?

thanks in advance,

moooo

Spend 15 bucks on a new cd rom and just be done with it, since its prolly gonna be a headache everytime u reinstall windows I think its worth the money.

okie, i just got more info on it.. apparently she had adaptec ex cd creator on it, and uninstalled and she has read that this messes up the settings. The computer reconizes it and when she goes to device manager, it has the ! in front and it says some error 19. anyone have have problem before? or know how to solve it?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
