Default Re: Problem with BIOS recognizing CD drive

Sounds like the controller, or the drive has gone bad. Have you tried the drive on a different controller? Trying another drive if you have one handy would be ideal too. Not much you can do other than this, other than setting the BIOS to defaults- which may work, maybe something screwy is going on with the BIOS, and a good default reset will help.
