Default cd rom problem after WIN Me reinstall

sponsored links

 
I used my WinME restore CD to wipe my PC clean and to have a fresh install, due to unrelated problems. After the complete install, everything is working great, except the CD Rom. It's not recognized in windows explorer.

I've done this reinstall a few times and this has never been a problem. Should I try the reinstall of Win ME again? Perhaps some of the drivers didn't apply? Is there a way for me to just get the right drivers without reinstalling? Im not sure which brand or type of cd rom it is, though.

Thanks.

You don't need drivers for CD Roms or any optical device, Windows has native support, meaning you just install them and it does the rest.

Is the drive detected and displayed in the Bios and Device Manager?

Do you have another PC to test the drive on? It may have very well just died.

also try - remove it from the device manager and reboot and windows will re-install the drive. Could be a conflict there somewhere.
