Question about PC Desktops
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

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark? ! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver
if you dont have motherboard disk you will need to download the drivers
Adaptec's UDF Reader enables MultiRead CD-ROM drives to read UDF-formatted CD-R and CD-RW discs (such as those written with DirectCD) under Windows 95/98/98SE/NT 4.0/2000.
hope this helps you
