bios sees it as a cdrom drive and when i boot up. Its in my computer but it will no read any disc.It will just pause for a sec and open a blank window .The drive has power and starts up when i boot but will not read any disc .Now there is a bios update for my system but have no floppys right now to install the new bios would that solve my problem .I have already gone to the dell support pages and tried all the options with no luck .I have tried it has a master and slave drive still no luck. Any suggestions would be helpfull.
