If you've got a CD that came with the drive, try running that again. If you don't have it, get the drivers from here:
I tried that and it won't install the new drivers because it can't detect where they're suppose to be going (can't find the hardware) and I do have a CD but can't run it while my roms down.
"Is this a clean install? Have you installed the mobo drivers? What things have you done to the pc before the problem happened? If its not a clean install, then try deleting the IDE controllers in safe mode and rebooting, coz they could be corrupt."
UMMM... Yes?(No idea actually) I didn't do anything to my pc prior to this and I did try deleting the IDE controllers but that didn't work either.
I read somewhere that you should have 1 ribbon wire thing connecting your hard drive and rom (which i do) but can't see it being a problems because its always been like that.
