I’m a newbie to this forum.
I have an ACER 660 laptop and I recently replaced the broken internal CDROM combo with an internal QSI SBW-242. The install went fine, but for some strange reason, XP Pro doesn’t recognise the drive until I eject the drive completely out of the drive bay and r- insert it. Only then does XP recognise the drive and allow me to use it.
Now I could make do with this nuisance, but the problem is impossible to bear when I want to rebuild the OS of my laptop using the manufacturers recovery CD’s. As you can guess, whenever I boot up my laptop the CDROM drive is never recognised. So, I can not use the recovery CD’s
Any suggestions please?
