I am using windows XP home, and I have run into a problem. My son was using my pc and he said he got a "blue screen " crash. He removed all the USB devices and was able to find out that the mouse was causing the problem. He installed a new mouse and the problem went away( at least I hope so) Today I purchased a new wireless keyboard and mouse by Logitech and installed them. I got them connected and they run well. I went to install the software and put the cd in and it started to go but nothing happened. I went to my computer and there wasn't a drive for the cd rom, instead there was an icon that was for a "mobile device"which I assumed was the keyboard and mouse.I am not sure if this loss is due to the keyboard mouse or the blue screen error. How can I get my cd rom drive to show up and work?
Thanks for your help.

Does the CD show up in device manager?

Control panel-> system Properties -> Hardware Tab - > Device Manager (in windows xp)

If so you can add letter to it under contol panel -> administartive tools -> Disk managemnt and right clicking on the cd name.

If not, just to ask have you rebooted?


Check to see if it shows up in bios. An option as soon as you boot up the computer. delete button or f8 or something. It will tell you.

If not check to make sure it is set to master correctly if appropriate?
