CD/DVD drives do not show up in My Computer after swapping one of the drives from the system-WinXP
Posted on 2004-04-25
I removed a Yamaha cd drive which has no driver support for Windows XP and I swaped it with another dvd drive in which its driver (roxio ECDC and Direct CD v.5 )is supported by WinXP. This drive which I set as slave, just like the one replaced and another dvd rw drive whiich is still set as master on an ASUS p4p.. motherboard do not show up in My Computer. Do I need to remove a key in the registry so that the cds would show up in My Computer. If yes, which one?
Prior to removing the drive,Windows wouldn't load the cd drivers to prevent instability of the system. I also uninstalled the software for the cd. After doing that
