HELP!!! Missing CD Rom and DVD

  • Thread starter bossdodgers
  • Start date


For some strange reason both my CD and DVD drives have suddenly disappeared. They are not showing in My Computer and just the DVD is showing in Device Manager. However, neither are working. They have been working perfectly since I installed XP in October. The only thing I have done today with my computer is run the Live Update from Norton Anti Virus. Anyone had a similiar problem and got any ideas?

System Specs

AMD Athlon 1400 DDR
Pioneer DVD
TEAC CDR drive
Nvidia GeForce 2 MX400 64Mb
Creative Soundblaster 1024 soundcard

I know I can use System Restore but I would rather find out what has caused it first if possible


Problem solved. It was the bios and an update fixed the problem.

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!
