CD ROM Controllers

  Rhuddlan 18:52 26 Jul 2004

I have a IBM Thinkpad 1400 series laptop with Win 98 and I noticed in device manager that there was a yellow mark next to CD ROM Controllers but the CD ROM drive was fine, I unintstalled them to see if that would solve the problem restarted the comp and now they have completely gone from device manager, it orginally said that an unsigned driver was installed or the device wasn't working properly, the CD ROM is still fine, but I want to know if I need these CD ROM controllers and what do they do???

The controllers and drivers are needed to make the drive(s) work properley. If they have vanished from device manager, try running add hardware wizard....TT

Have tried that and windows never found any new devices, like I said the CD ROM is drive is working properly and reports no problems in device manager

I formatted my hard disk and I ran windows millenium in it, and after installation I can't access my cdrom drive
