CD + CD R Recognition

  Izzeldin-293337 21:57 28 Aug 2003

I'm using Gateway Performance 1700 P4 + WinXP Pro
recently both my CD Rom & CD writer are not recognized by the PC . I used to reboot to get them. Nowadays I lsost them completely

I tried to re-install Windows Xp Pro but the OS can't install as the CD rom is not identified .
I replaced the connection between th RMS and motherboard but no result,

I looked in previous data I didn;t see a very similar problem.

Any help

Try disconnecting the drives, rebooting to windows then shutting down and reconnecting one of the drives. If it's recognised then reconnect the second one. If it's not recognised then connect the other one in it's place and try again.

have you tried booting to safe mode to see if they will recognise a disc there?

Does the bios recognise them?
