Hello there, I wanted to try building a pc on my own about a year ago, I installed everything and when i turned the pc on, everything seemed to be working well, I saw the cd drives and everything seemed ok, then I installed the sound drivers and I noticed my cd drives were when i rebooted my pc, I noticed that if I keep the sound drivers installed, the computer doesn't recognize the cd drives, it doesn't show 'em at all, when i uninstalled the sound drivers, the CD drives were back on, I didn't use CDs so I decided to just leave it without drives and have the sound installed, but now i noticed that whenever I put my flashdrive on and I restart the computer, sometimes the drive doesn't appear and if it does, the computer starts slowing down and skipping like a cd on a cd player while moving it too fast. then when i try to turn it off it freezes and i need to manually shut down the pc, Any idea what could be causing the problem?
please help me, thank you

What motherboard?
What operating system?
Assuming XP did you install Service Pack 2
Did you run Windows update?
Did you install the motherboard Chipset drivers?

Install CD/DVD as master on IDE2, not as slave on IDE1 with the HDD on the same channel.

Try deleting "upperfilters" and "lowerfilters" :

This fix works for many CD drive problems...
