PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows 98 SE
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: LG CD-ROM CRD-8521B
Error Messages:



ok, I installed a new CD Burner in my computer.... and I also still have my old regular CD-Rom drive installed.  My burner is working great. However, my old LG CD-ROM drive isn't showing up on the "My Computer" screen, nor will it auto-detect when I put in a CD. But it shows up in the Device Manager (with no yellow flag) and I can play CD's in it from RealJukebox.  Any ideas why this is happening? I'm fairly new to computers so be gentle. lol

When you installed the CD Rom did you set the jumper to Slave as you may have them both Hard Disk and CD Rom connected to the same mother board IDE Socket. Your new writer jumper should be set to Master. Ideally, there are usually 2 IDE sockets on the motherboard one should connect to the Hard Disk/s and the other to the CD roms. Note the red band edging on the grey flat connection cable should always be connected showing red adjacent to the power connector on the back of the CD/Hard Drive/A Drive. You could check the Bios settings at bootup to see if the Auto detect knows and recognises both cd drive setting should show None  0  0  0  0   0 Normal for them.

I am still at a standstill.  I have tried what Moshebagelfresser suggested but still no luck.  When booting it shows both CD Drives. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times. No Luck

Hi,

Edit "c:\autoexec.bat" and add "REM" at the beginning of any lines that runs MSCDEX.EXE

Try adding a REM in front of 'DEVICEHIGH=C:\CDROM\GSCDROM.SYS /D:MSCD000 /v' like this:

REM DEVICEHIGH=C:\CDROM\GSCDROM.SYS /D:MSCD000 /v

Save the file, exit and reboot

Let me know if this helped!

Hi,

Look at the 'Settings' tab of the cdrom drive properties in 'Device Manager' under the 'Reserved drive letters' section to verify one is assigned.

right click on that drive and see if autoplay is enabled if it isnt give that a try
just a thought....go to device manager and do a properties on it and check there to see if anything isnt checked that should be for it
