try this for me - right click on "my computer" go to properties - select the tab for device manager - and tell me if anything has an exclamation mark or an x next to it - also when you first turn it on you should see the computer detect the cd rom - it should first find your two hard drives - then your cd rom - watch for this - and look in device manager and let me know

All pluses in device manager except for no CD-Rom listed. How do I find you after I shut down and start up again? New to this page

Check your Bios setup to be sure it is recognized.  Sometimes you need to load the cd rom driver in config.sys. Install or copy the cd driver to a directory on your hard disk. Then load the device driver in config.sys, maybe this will help.

ex.  DEVICE=C:\CDROM\VIDE-CDD.SYS /D:MSCD001

Your cd manual should be able to help you.

Please tell me about your system's installed hardware.
(CPU, RAM, drives, sound, modem, etc.)
How are the hard drive controllers listed in Device Manager?
(click the plus next to the icon)
