PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows98SE

Problem Hardware Make & Model:CDROM Sony CRX140E AND SAMSUNG DVD ROM SD-608
I had my Hard Drive formatted about ten weeks ago and everything worked perfectly until this week. I could use both my CD RW and DVD ROM to play music and install programs. Then three days ago I tried to install a couple of programs but neither drive will recognise program CDs. I can play music perfectly OK on both drives so they must be both ennabled  OK. I have checked that the Insert notification box is ticked but still get the same result. I used to have a tick in the DMA box but that is now unticked and if I try to enable it I get a warning message that it could damage my PCs settings.I have checked thru Systems Information and its says both Drives are working OK and that there are no problem devices.I have also checked that there are no Viruses or Spyware. Can anyone throw some light on this problem?. Thanks.

Hi,

Try booting off a Windows 98 Startup disk, use the "With cdrom support" options, take note as the drivers loads (MSCDEX) what drive letter was assigned to the cdrom drive. Insert a data cd and try to do a listing.

e.g. dir d: (assuming the drive letter is D:)

This will let you know if the problem is hardware or software.

Thank you ADMIN   This problem is now solved. I could not find my Startup Disk so I did a search on the site and used an answer given to "Sidewinder" on FEB 11 2003 to edit the Registry. This did the job and both drives are now working perfectly. Once again Thank you very much. Ted.
