PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows 98
Problem Application Name & Version:Cd-rom drive
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Acer 8x4x32 cd r/rw


Error Messages:I lost my floppy disk drive as well as the cd-rom drive.I went to Microsoft and got info as to what to do. I followed their instructions and was able to get my floppy drive back. However I am still not able to get my cd-rom drive going. I am continuously getting an error message cd-rom drive not found. I have also gone to Acer for a drive but have not been able to find one that will work.
I have checked to see if the file exists on my hard drive (c:/windows/command/ebd/oakcdrom.sys)but it does not.
What can I do? I do not have a floppy with the drive on it. I also tried my Windows 98 start up disk and also no luck.
I have run out of things to try and do. I don't want to mess up my o/s.I am in need of some professional help.

Hi,

Are you trying to get the cdrw working in Windows or from a boot disk?

If you're trying to get Windows to recognize the cdrw, you will first need to let us know if there are any devices in Device Manager (Control Panel > System icon) with a yellow dot.

Windows 98 does not require any third party drivers for it to read cds, it has native support for all IDE cdrom drives. I suspect your secondary IDE controller in Device Manager is not working properly (if the cdrw is on that port) and once we get that going, it will recognize the cdrw.

Let us know.

There are no devices in Device manager with a yellow dot. Also there is no listing of the cdrom either.
Yes it is on the IDE controller. Yesterday when I started up a message appeared that "the IDE has changed."

Hi,

Did anybody play around with the BIOS settings, if so verify the secondary IDE controller was not disabled.

I would also check that the cdrw's ribbon cable is well attached at both end and that the power connector is also well attached.

No one has changed the Bios settings that I can see. Everything appears to be ok on that front. The IDE controller is not disabled.
I also checked the ribbon cable and that too is alright. I always have power to the cdrw.
Now what?
