CD-ROM not being recognized
I was working on my neighbors computer and ran across an interesting situation. He said that about two years ago his CD-ROM's stopped working. I double checked the cables and took them off and reattached them but neither the BIOS nor Windows will recognize the drives. I told him that it's possible the IDE port on the motherboard is dead as that's the only thing I could think of. I would like to get this working for him. There's power going to the CD-ROM's so there's no issue there, it's just that they aren't recognized by the BIOS or Windows. Would a new IDE cable help? Any other suggestions?
