Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

The start-up identifies IDE Channels, ie, Channel 0-WDC A313000 Hard Drive is the master, and identifies Channel 1-NEC CD-ROM 282 SM as the slave. When I look in the hardware profiles, Sony Proprietary is the CD-ROM. Then I get messages that the CD-ROM cannot be found, and it does not appear in My Computer on the Windows 98, version 4.01 Desktop. Why did the CD-ROM brand name change? How I do get the system to recognize the NEC CD-ROM 282 SM, which is plugged into the motherboard?


Answers :

Sounds like you may have been digging in there.
\015\012If you have a 2nd IDE cable, try putting the CD-ROM on that...in the 1st connector slot.
