Window's won't detect CD ROM Drive
First off, this is probably in the wrong section, but it has to do with Windows AND my CD-ROM drive.
Today I just purchased a 250GIG Western Digital harddrive. This now puts me up to 3 harddrives! So, I figured I could just connect to it to the same IDE as the my CDROM. But with my harddrive, it doesn't detect my CD rom drive! However, WITH my harddrive DISCONNECTED (power) my CDROM works perfectly fine.
My motherboard (ASUS K8V SE Deluxe) has this "Promise FastTrak 378 Controller", so I used my IDE-cable, plugged it into there, set an 'array' (as my BIOS asked me too). Now my CD Rom drive *both* work according to Windows and my BIOS.
But one problem remains. In Windows, I am able to format my harddrive, access it, and do whatever. The only down fall is, I cannot access my CD-ROM drive AT ALL... the weird thing is, when I boot up and go into BIOS it IS detecting the CD-ROM Drive.
When I first start up, before the Windows XP loading screen, I push the button on my CD-ROM drive and it'll open up, and attempt to read a disc. As soon as I see Windows XP screen, I push the button and I get -nothing-!
