Martin, some more background please. Since when has this been happening? Have you made any changes to your system? New hardware? New software? Upgrades? What OS are you using?

Michendi, this happened in the last 2 weeks while I was away. NO hardwarw or software installed, but possible BIOS settings changed by my brave 11 YO boy. Using XP and any help would be great. Tin

Is your mbd fitted with the IT8212 bios controller, which is common, I believe, where mbd RAID option is offered? The IT8212 is temperimental when more than one make of optical drive is involved. Install manuals warn you to be careful, which isn't in itself much help.

A solution suggested elsewhere is to separate the CD's, DVD's from the HDD's and run them from a non-raid IDE pci card. click here

Everything was all ok previous to my break. The comp is just not finding the drives.
