I am also having a problem with my cdrom drive except the script wasn't able to help. Now my cd drive is receiving power (with blinking green light and all) and is properly connected ( I tried with 3 different cables and made sure that they were plugged in tight) but my computer doesn't recognize that there is even a drive there. The drive does try and read disks and out of the blue I will check My Computer and my cd rom drive shows up and works fine...but it's a very rare occation and once I turn off the computer it's gone. I have xp and the cd drive worked fine on my old computer (which had windows ME), could it be a compatability issue?
IT'S DRIVING ME MAD...I need my gaming fix lol
