    I am helping a guy with his computer and wish I never said I would. Anyway, he has it on drive g. I kepp getting please insert disk in drive g, there is already a disk in drive g. I have tried in uninstall and reboot, device manager says there is no problem, I looked in the event viewer and it has this error over and over says AMLI:ALPI BIOS is attimpting to read from an illegal IO port addrss (0xcfc) which lies in the 0xcf8-0xcff protected address range. This could lead to system instability. Please contact your system vendor for tech assistance.. He had another hard drive in for an h and i drive I had to take that out. now he has c--d---e--f---g drives. the cdrom is not on its own ide cable cause I took the other harddrive out. also this is werid, when you start up, then I go to my computer and all the drives are listed. the floppy drive Cdrive and d and e and f and g for the cdrom. but if you click on any of them it takes you to the search page as if you went to start>search> and was going to search for a file, BUT, on the my computer page if you click the drop down box which also has all the drives in it you can click any drive and it will take you there. Please help, as soon as I get the cdrom working thats it ,,itis going back, I have to get it going, please help, Thanks
