My cd rom drive has vanished it is not listed in device manager or my computer, checked connections and downloaded drivers but still no luck. Tryed it in another pc and it worked. I have also checked BIOS. OS Win 98. Any answers. Thanks.

how about add new hardware in control panel..

i gather the jumpers are correct on the drive to suit your system

You say connections have been checked and that it worked on another system, but did you use the same ribbon cable,the fault could be in the cable,if the cable is ok try switching the leads over from IDE1 to IDE2 on motherboard.
