Cd - Dvd Rom fault

Hi Peeps,
Please help this thick female, recently i had trouble with xp so i reformatted and re-installed Windows Xp now whenever i open it up my cd rom or dvd rom which ever i have tried disappears in my computer. I unstalled the drive to see if it recognises it again which it does but once it re-installs it like i said above it appears then after a second disappears. U still awake i have been told to adjust from dma to pin only but that lost me…

Please please help


Open Devicemanager and look for the drive.

Also check Event-Viewer.

If there is a error like “Code 39”, go to the ms support site / knowledge base and search for a solution / fix.
