My CD-RW isn't being recongnized by my computer. It's a Plextor 12/10/32 IDE drive. I had to format and reinstall Windows ME cause I couldn't play any games. That was my last resort. I had a hell of a time to get my printer recognized. I even un-plugged the damn thing and still nothing works. It's always detected as a generic CD-ROM, what do I do . . . I uninstalled it from the device manager and it still doesn't work. I try to up-grade but no luck. Please help, thanks a lot.

It's seeing it as the Plextor. The BIOS is recognizing the CD-RW. WIndows isn't. Hope this helps. BTW, the CD-RW is set as slave and DVD-ROM is set as Master.

Any chance that you have a second SCSI entry in Device Manager - if so uninstall it and reboot.

Nope, I only got the Ultra ATA 100 card and my DVD-ROM and the CD-RW are not connected to that. The only thing that is connected to the controller is my HD.

Fubar I just got done upgrading my sys to a K7 650, and what not. I'm having the same prob with my HP 8100 CDRW. If you find out the answer to fix this e-mail me ok?

I had the problem before when i added a 48x cdrom to the same ide channel as the burner it woldn't recognize the burner. when i would unplug one drive or the other and boot it would see what drive was there as it was supposed to be so since i had my hd's on the ata controler i left the burner on the secondary IDE channel as master and the 48x cdrom on the primary IDE channel as master.

Funny how formatting works so often, but damn annoying to do http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/frown.gif
