I formated my computer and right after i got done installing windows 95 the D drive Disappeared. Now i cant run any CD roms and i cant finish installing all the other components to make the computer run effieciently. How do i get D drive back? I have tried to install new hardware manually for CD-Rom controllers but it always asks for the win95 disk and i cant use it.

The answer lies in that windows overwrites the autoexec and config.sys files on your hard drive "C".

Run sysedit from windows or Edit from dos and remove the rem statements from the lines relating to your cdrom (mscdex).

This should then kick windows into recognising that you have a cdr again.

if that doesn't work then check your cables and that the cdr appears in the boot up sequence as the bios recognises all the bits... you get to see this by pressing esc everytime the windows bitmap appears...

Hope that helps you out.
