Question about EPO Technology (CR-856E) Internal 56x CD-ROM Drive
I recently installed this model of CD ROM drive on a work computer running Windows 2K. It was one I'd had from a previous computer and works fine in other systems. The computer detected the drive fine, and for about a week it had no trouble detecting discs. Then, at seemingly random, it stopped detecting the discs. When I put a disc in, the drive will light up for a few seconds as if it's reading the CD, then it stops, and doesn't show that a disc is loaded. I have disconnected and reconnected the cables, replaced the IDE cables, triple checked the jumper configurations and bios settings, everything should be working flawlessly, but it isn't. I even had a tech talk me through resetting everything in windows to make it redetect the drive, to no avail.
My best quess wouldbe that the drive went out and you just don't realize or want to admit it. Switch it back to another system to test it, if it still dosn't work scrap it. Otherwise I would try booting to dos with an old 98se disk, see if it's your OS if it is, reinstall 2k.
