Do you have the jumper set right on the back of the cd drive? If it is the only drive, it should be set in the "master" setting.
I don't understand why it would be giving you a drive A error, your drive A is your floppy drive, unless you were messing with that too.

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
