How do I get my cd-rom working again, cdrw, and a:\drive to work?
Posted on 2001-06-22
I recently bought a acer cd burner. When I hooked it up I changed my 10gb harddrive to main boot drive and just copied everything to that drive. The connections use to be 4.2 gb drive and cd-rom connected to one ide slot and 10gb drive connected to other. Then I bought the cd burner and now have both cd-rom and cd burner connected to one ide cable and plugged in to the same ide slot and have both harddrives hooked up to one ide cable and plugged into the other ide slot with 10gb drive as the boot drive for win 98'. Now when I click on cdrom in windows or the cdburner it says drive is not accesible. The cdrom and cdburner don't read disc, they also don't have a file label, when I try to get into the file in dos it says "CDR101 not ready to read", and I've also tried to move the jumpers from master to slave on both drives and it still says drive not accessible. The floppy drive is also not accessible in windows 98'. So what is my problem? Help me please!!! this has been going on for a while. Also I can't reload the software cause the cdrom can't read cd's.
