Question about Computers & Internet
Sounds like the ribbon (cable) could be a controller issue, unplug the h.d.d. from controller head on mb and plug in the cd rom ribbon there boot into bios and look for the cd roms if the same problem is there replace the ribbon or you can check each one seperaely by running them off the primary ide as a slave to the hdd
also swap ribbons with the hdd and see if there is still a prob. if these do not correct the prob you have a controller issue buy a controller pci card and use it or replace the board, the card is much cheaper or the last poss. is both cd roms are bad
