Compaq cd drive dont work with XP? recent upgrde
I recently built a computer because my Compaq presario 5102us
fan stopped and fried my processor. So i got a new case and installed
an ASUS K8N motherboard with a AMD Athlon 64 3000+ box cpu and fan. I
also installed windows xp home edition ( because my compaq was running
ME} and installed a new seagate internal 160GB hard drive. I then took
my compaq 40GB HD and the CD and CD\RW drives from the old computer and
insta them in new case.
One CD crive worked long enough to install XP and video card driver
Now after all this no cd drives read a cd (music or data) though they
look like they are trying to and they are being picked up in bios. i've
tried to switch master and slave to cable select, i've tried pulling
power on one,i've uninstalled the driver in device manager and rebooted
to let windows find another(witch it does) to now avail
Someone please help me

Pick a better newsgroup - this one is for the operating system OS/2
which is not Windows of any flavour.
