Hi,

Here is my problem: my cd and cd rw drives disappeared from 'My computer' after a crash during a game.

The drives are detected in the devices list and there are no exclamation marks; however no letters are assigned

I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling both the drives and the ide controllers and assigned drive letters - the letters are removed after rebooting.

The drives are detected by the bios.

The drives will work when I boot from win98 boot disk.

I have tried installing the drivers from the win98 boot disk and booting windows with those - mixed results - the drives were visible in 'my computer' but could not access any information.


Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks.
