My cd drive is not working, when I go to device manager it has a yellow exclamation point beside it. I have tried uninstalling it and have no success. I also tried uninstalling my primary and secondary ATA channels and that didn't help either. Any suggestions?

Excuse my butting in, but does the drive show in "My Computer"?

Nevermind...my browser only loaded half the MS page...I didn't see that it asked you to check the filters until I reloaded the page a couple times.

Sorry........ :)
