CD-ROM not working anymore
Posted on 1998-03-25
On my Windows95 computer I've been using my CD-ROM for about a year now with no problems. Recently I started to not beeing able to access my CD-ROM drive. Every time I go into the Windows Explorer to try to view the CD-ROM drive I get the "Error accessing drive - Retry or Cancel".
I took the drive out of my computer and installed it on a different one and was working fine; Win95 detected and installed the drivers just fine.
I put the drive back on my computer and re-installed it. The same problem.
If I use F8 and boot to DOS and than I load the MSCDEX manualy (by typing it at the C: prompt) I can access the CD-ROM drive fine but ... if I continue to type WIN to load Windows95 than I have the same problem.
Any ideas on how to solve this?
P.S. There is no new software that was installed as far as I know.
