Help. My CD drive stopped working

  as400man 21:04 30 Jan 2003

When I put a CD ROM into the drive I hear it spinning but the CD drive light stays off and Windows Explorer does not show drive D:
Any ideas?

If it spins you have power so ... has the IDE cable come off ?
Is the drive still shown in 'My Computer' ? Your CD ROM may be dirty or the drive itself may need a clean !
If no drive is shown at all try rebooting to get the set up screen, check all settings OK.

Check the ribbon cable it sounds like it may be that as ,if windows can't detect the cdrom it wouldn't appear in explorer

It looks like my driver is kaput. Any idea where I can download a new XP version for QSI DVD-ROM SDR-81?
