I am running windoze Me. (sorry )
We had a power cut yesterday as I was copying to my CD re-writer. Since the power returned and I booted up, I cannot get the hard disk and the CD-Rom/CD re-writer to work on two separate IDE sockets. Each socket works but when I plug the CD-s into one IDE and the hard disk into the other, the CD-s don't work. If I plug a hard drive into one IDE and the hard disk from my laptop into the other, they both work and I can copy to nad form each.
When I boot up, the power to the cd's work and the logo in my system tray for the cd rw is there but with the red circle and diagonal red line thru it. I have re-installed the softeware for the cdrw but with no operational success.
I used the install new hardware feature and it says that I have installed successfully the standard dual IDE driver.
I am now stuck and need your help guys.
