cd rom is not workin it doesn't show on boot screen as secondary master even though set at that. The light comes on so there is power goin to it. TRied other cd rom drives and other cables but it still doesn't work and need other ideas. checked cables r in firmly enough. For a while before this happened I got the message "no primary ide 80 conductor cable installed". The message does not show. Had to swap hard drives as win 95 is slowly losing all dll files and programs aren't workin. Now got win 98 se and floppy a doesn't work either. Now cannot bootup or format disk. Help!!!!!

prior to the 'no 80 conductor cable installed' error displayed were you inside your case changing drives etc?

can you tell us what motherboard and hard drive model and size you have?

click here click here may help a bit. check the jumpers are set to master or cable select on your hard drive and master & slave correctly on you optical drives. try reversing the cables or switching the cdrw cable with the hard drive cable and see what happens. some more info may help here please.
