    I installed a CDRW drive Saturday (3 days ago), and it worked fine. It became my E: as I already had a CD drive on D:
    Then yesterday, after running NERO to copy a CD (which went fine), I exited Nero and then tried to install a new game using my D:. Nothing happened. I clicked on My Computer and saw that D and E are gone. Rebooted, same thing. Still today, no CD drives.

    Before I take off the hood and detach & reattach both drives, is there anything I should do first?

    SOLVED: Device manager shows no cd's at all. Exclamation by Secondary Bus Master IDE controller (dual fifo). Updated driver using one found online. CD's popped back up instantly. I just wonder why the driver stopped working out of the blue like that...?
