Re: CD rom

Some CD drives have proprietary drivers but since it worked to install windows, we have a good clue to work with. Check and see if under device manager the IDE channels are working, this means not marked with a yellow exclamation mark. If one or any are, the protected mode drivers are locked. Open regedit and go to this key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CURRENTCONTROLSET > SERVICES > VXD > IOS Click on the NOIDE entry on the right side of the regedit program and hit delete. Close regedit and reboot, this will reset the protected mode drivers. If this doesn't do it, try changing from DMA transfer protocol to P10. It is on the settings page of the CD rom once you get it into device manager. If it's still not working, you may have use DOS mode drivers and that's to complicated to describe here.

My driver for sony cd rom cdu5211 is lost and now my CD ROM is not reading any type of CD.

It depends on what Operating System you are using.Windows Xp have all the drivers for Sony and other brands of CD rom drives,same with Vista and win7.Just go to the control panel,click the hardware manager and the drop down menu will show the hardwares of your CPU.Look for the cdrom driver and see if it has the yellow baloon with exclamation-meaning it has an error or the driver is not installed.You can go to sony website and type in your cdrom drive model and it will give you the driver for it,download the software.If the software is detected and ask you to install it,click "yes".After the process is done,test it by putting in a music or picture cd,make sure the drive is clean too cause reasons why cdroms don't read is because of dirty laserheads.Buy yourself a cdrom lens cleaner disk,it helps me many times.

Windows 98 on dell inspirion d600 install problem

Installing Windows 98, is you need a start-up disk (floppy disk) first before you can use the Windows 98 cd. The start-up disk will perform the partitioning and formatting of the HD...doing this, you have to boot from floppy drive first---after partitioning and formatting, you have change again the boot sequence to boot from cd then you can start the installation of Windows 98.

I'm trying to install a PC-DVD Game to my LG CD-ROM CRD-8521B, It plays CD's but wont play DVD's of any sort. Really need help...

The CD rom is limited to CD's. In order to read a DVD, you will need to install a DVD rom. My suggestion is to get an external DVD Burner - i just bought a Samsung slim external DVD burner that reads / writes CD's and DVD's.
You will have no luck ever reading a dvd in a cd rom.
