My friend asked me to help him with his old olivetti PC.
The CD Rom will not work - it is always not accessible.
However a D: icon always appears in my computer and SONY CD-ROM CDU 311 appears in device manager, which claims it is working properly.
I can right click over the D: icon and eject the drive but that is the only operation i can apply.
When doing a step by step confimation boot this message appears.
"The following file is missing or corupted: C:\CDROM\GSCDROM.SYS.
There is an error in your config.sys file on line 7"
I have removed the drive via device manager.
Add new hardware wizard fails to find it but it is always there on reboot.
The CD rom has been not working for a few months.
My friend has kids about the house who may or may not have gone around messing with system files.
