I upgraded to Windows XP and now there is no CD-ROM drive in my computer-- how do I get it to work?
Classic, classic, classic problem!
The solution is very simple! Just goto this website: http://www.dougknox.com/xp/scripts_desc/xp_cd_dvd_fix.htm and download "xp_cd_dvd_fix.vbs", you cant miss it, its the first link on the page. Save it to your desktop, and when its done downloading, double click it. When it finishes, restart your computer. Volla! Problems should be fixed! You can now go ahead and delete the file you saved to your desktop. BTW thanks for joining :-).
