Hmm, 'tis a strange problem.
You see, this computer, is not new, a few years old infact and still works perfectly fine. The problem cropped up a few weeks back and is still there. I have done virus checks, spyware and adware checks, I've even ran a Starforce driver remover tool through it and it still doesn't work.
I'm pretty sure the drives are in the right place, as I've said, they've been working fine for years now. By the way, these are two different CD/DVD Drives and they both don't "see" a disk when its in. "E:/ is inaccessable" (sp?) is all that comes up when I put a cd in and click "Explore" or "Run".
Once again, these drives have been running fine for a couple of years so I really doubt a CMOS check-up would do anything. I could and will try it, without a doubt, but as to whether it will turn up anything I'm unsure.
It could be a physical problem, such as you suggest, but once again these are two different drives, one that was bought along with the computer and it's other parts and one bought at a later date. To both fail simultaniously seems highly improbable. Also, Windows XP (SP2) detects both of the drives and can see them as clear as glass, its just they don't physically pick up a disk inside, I think.
