Re: both CD Rom drives will not work
just to fill you in, I have looked for drivers, but i can only find a firmware update for my Samsung SW-212, no bootable disk drivers. I should also mention that the other generic cd rom drive is broken because I tried prying it open with a fork for some reason. That cdrom drive still lights up, but the trey is half out of the computers body, wont go back in because of damage I may have caused. But still, system will not detect either cd drive. Samsung is the only one I can get working, but really lost as to where to begin.
Also, under 'Hard disk controllers' in device manager, Secondary IDE controller (dual fifo) has a (!) on the icon
