Just yesterday, I went into the control panel and mistakingly I assigned DMA to all my drives, which are:
Pirmary IDE controller dual fifo, where the master is the Hard disk drive and the secondary is a DVD rom. On the secondary ide controller I have a TDK CD burner as master, and no slave. After I did this and the computer restarted, in the control panel there is exclamation mark and the message is "The device is either not present, not working properly, or the drivers are not installed".
In control panel I do not see the hard drive and the DVD rom, but in windows explorer I can see my hard drive but not the DVD rom.
What must I do to clear this problem
Please help
