windows xp is suddenly no longer detecting my cd-rom, i followed the instructions on this site which stated to uninstall my secondary ide channel (on which my cd-rom was installed). upon reboot, however windows xp did not automatically detect the channel nor the drive. I have multiple OSs - the alternative being Windows 2000 but since this is not configured for the network, I dont’ use it much. However, when I restarted in Win2000, it was not detecting the CD-ROM either. Please tell me what I can do? I recently - about 2 months ago - bought my ASUS CD-ROM drive. Please help!
ps I recently changed from Samsung to ASUS, and just to try it out I decided to switch back to Samsung, only to see no difference in the problem. So that rules out that there is anything wrong with my ASUS drive.
