CD ROM Problem

  sootey 16:25 04 Jul 04

My friend has a AMD 2400 512 mem XP Pro and has got a problem with his DVD and CDRom drives they will not load any programs.
When he goes to the Device Manager they have got a yellow circle with a exclamation mark in.

He has re loaded and restored but to no avail.

anone with ideas or advice please

Loose or infirm lead(s) or connection(s) most likely if they had been working properly before.

Has he got the jumper settings correct. If they share an IDE channel then the writer should be master and the reader slave.

The jumper were okay a couple of weeks ago the problem has just occured and we do not know why

have both the drives worked? If so a system restore to when they were, might get them going again....TT
