    is it recognized in the boot menu?
    you could try uninstalling it in device manager,then shut down,check all the ide/power leads to the drive are seated correctly and then bot up again,windows should re-detect the drive.
    im asuming that your "d" drive is your cdrom?

    I am no expert but I have been having similar difficulties with my CD ROM, and have been surfing the hardware forum for the last few weeks.

    The latstest thing that worked for me to get my CD ROM going again was to run the maintainence wizard in Win 98- Start-programs-accessories-system tools-mainmtainence wizard.

    I had a problem in the boot section of my hard drive.

    I then deleted my CD ROM from the system- start-settings-control panel-system-device manager- click on CD Rom and then remove.

    When my system rebooted I accessed device manager again and unticked disconnect.

    My CD ROM is working at present. For how long I don't know as I have managed to get it to work a few times in the last week to have it crash again. Fingers crossed.
