: I'm having some wierd CDrom problems

: After installing it, it worked for a couple weeks and
: now it stopped working just like the other one. I've checked

: figure out why this keeps happening. In the device manager

: If so, how would I fix that? I'm running Windows 95. Thanks.
I have a similar problem. My CDRom quit working and the system removed the drive from MY COMPUTER and from WINDOWS EXPLORER. In addition, the system removed the CDROM controllers from the DEVICE MANAGER in SYSTEM under CONTROL PANEL. The weird thing is that I was able to reload my factory default settings using the packaged floppy boot up disk and accompanying cdrom disk. Even after doing this the DEVICE MANAGER still has no CDROM controllers listed and both WINDOWS EXPLORER and MY COMPUTER have no icon for the cdrom drive. The system does recognize the cdrom when it boots up but windows doesn't. I don't know what would cause this to happen. I could sure use some direction. I have used both the old cdrom and a new cdrom to reinstall my original factory settings. The system recognizes and is able to use both during the reinstall and during the boot up sequence but windows shows no cdrom drive mapped and no controllers. I have made sure that the CMOS Setup was set read the drives as A,CDrom,C. I have checked my machines settings with my other machine that is identical and was also recently reinstalled but who's cdrom never crashed and drive letter and controllers were intact before the reinstall. I am running Windows 98.
