Southern Belle1 -> help need a diag (11/29/2005 9:21:40 PM)

is there a diag for testing why windows and recently bios is not recognizing my cdrw drives?
i'm at wits end and cant figure it out, someone suggested to remove the second channels and i did also they showed up in safe mode and they said to remove them there too and reboot reinstall secondary's....i did and now they arent showing up in safe mode either.

they were fine and both have power and i changed the cables to a new one did a nother check to make sure cables were secure..they were.

so please please please help me find an answer, i'm so lost

thanks your help is appreciated

Sony Rootkit???  Not sure.  Possibly a bad IDE cable... Replace it and check the jumpers and power... make sure your PSU is giving enough juice.

On a side note, I just upgraded to Firefox 1.5 and my pointer goes crazy with your font selection... flickers with the hour-glass... any other Firexfox 1.5 users confirm???

You have a very old system, you just need to obtain the IDE drivers for the system.
