CD ROM not recognised by explorer
« on: September 08, 2004, 05:13:43 AM »
Hi all, this is my first message to CH. I have been given a PC from a friend and have several quaestions about different problems. Here is the first: The CD Rom drive works fine but it does not appear in Windows explorer. Is this to do with it using the wrong type of driver or is it a non supported type?

Thanks

Did you try assigning it a different drive letter? Perhaps uninstalling it from the Hardware management menu and resetting your computer will allow it to be redected by Windows.

Have you looked for firmware or other types of drivers?

DMA CD-ROM Drive Icon Does Not Appear in Windows Explorer

You did not mention your operating system, I will assume (due to the article) that it is Windows 98?
