So heres the problem:
I recently upgraded my XP os to sp3,
and since my dvd drive has become invisible, doesnt show up on my computer or device manager.
shows up in bios and on other OS
conected to the only ide port on my motherboard.
im looking for a solution that doesnt require reformatting or reinstalling windows.
I have too much data to back up and programs that I need and no longer have access to.
as said in the title I really need a quick response, for I have limited internet access.
thank you for your help.
