Here's the problem. I have a Philips PCRW804K CDRW installed in a PIII-500 (WIN ME) as the only cd drive. The drive light is continuousy flashing. There is no disk in the drive. It does not appear as a valid drive in the system profile. It continues to do this after a reboot.
This has been occurring for about 2 weeks. In the middle of this time, once it started working properly again. The next boot, the problem returned.
I have tried to "Add New Hardware", but the drive was not located as P&P or non-P&P.
Thanks for any help.
