If you are running 95 and it is not bringing them up automatically you might need the real mode drivers.something like this....

in config.sys

device = c:\mydrivername.sys /d:mscd000

in autoexec.bat

c:\mscdex.exe /d:mscd000

you'll need to supply the correct driver name and path in the config.sys and the correct path for mscdex.exe in the autoexec.bat

that should get something to come up if it is not an actual hardware problem.
