I signed up for driverguide and I was able to get the driverguide toolkit with the update feature. I did the driver scan and it came up with a new scsi controller for my computer but it needs to be installed in text mode. As far as I know, text mode setup only takes place when you install windows xp over again. Please correct me if i'm wrong...
Also, I checked the dell website for drivers and I got the NEC ND-6650A driver the one that fits my optical drive and I flashed it with the 103D firmware. Unfortunately, my drive still doesn't work and it doesn't a weird/different sound when it tries to read a disc.
According to DG toolkit, I still have an AXVSCSI controller on my system but I also have the A347SCSI controller also.
Other than make sure alcohol is 100% deleted from the registry, are there any more ideas out there for my problem, my HD is running out of space and I need my drive for school work asap. Thanks again to all those who tried to help and to those to come!!!!
