Question about LG CRD 8481B (CRD-8481B) Internal 48x CD-ROM Drive
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.
