[FONT=Impact] I got an update from microsquish and now my tdk 4800b driver is gone... and what makes matters worst, I have installed it 5 times!!!!!!! ( just a wee bit heated)

I have a firewall/router combo, up-to-date virus protection, and have ran all of them. first in safe mode then in normal mode... no bugs. so if there is a God ( or Goddess, prophet, shaman, voodoo high priestess worshiping the snap crackle pop of the internet) PLEASE OH PLEASE HELP!! I have a dead line for work and need the files off that cd to finish my project. (no there really isn't anywhere else I can do it... all sensitive stuff)

thank you

Go to the manufacturers website and download the latest drivers for your CD-RW, you probably have a faulty installation application.

Nada. and now my sound is going weird. Now I have had the hardware for about one year, and have done updates of all kinds before, so i know my way around a pc. This is different

ok once again the fabu brain cells at microsquish (3 level above dell i meant [bleep]) made me go through [bleep] to tell me that the problem is n my bios. oh and that she couldn't help me. thanks uncle bill.

the problem is my cd-rom is running in seperate memory. don't ask how, i have someone helping me build a website so I can sell my music cd.

thoughts, concernes, dirty politically incorrect statements and/or jokes?

Try system restore, and if that doesn't work, just remove your new driver and use the old one. It could be faulty. :tazz:

here are a couple of things to try:

1. the following patch seems to work occassionally on disappearing cdroms
CDGONE patch

2. have someone knowledgable with the registry remove upper & lower cdrom filters, if present
