All of a sudden my brothers computer stopped 'seeing' his generic 56x CD-ROM drive. (The Bios lists it correctly but the explorer doesn't see it) I thought the drive was shot so I installed a brand new CD-RW and the computer won't detect it (although again the BIOS sees it appropriately). Can't think of any new software or hardware that was added recently. He did play a video from a burned disk through Windows Media player as the last thing running successfully through the drive. The problem is without a CD-Rom drive we can't reload Win98. What to do next? All ideas appreciated.

create a win98 bootdisk with cdrom support and boot with it to see if can see your cdroms. if you can't do this without the 98 cd download an image from bootdisk.com.
