When I boot up windows and go to MyComputer the CD rom does not show up as one of the drives. So I go to diveces and have my computer search for new hardware and then the CD rom pops up as a drive, but it still does not work, it says can not read the cd. I have to do this everytime i boot up to get the cd rom to show up. I switched out cd roms thinking it was the actual drive and it still does the same thing. Any suggestions? Thanks.

If u have an NVIDIA chipset, make sure u use the MS drivers, not the NVIDIA IDE drivers. The drivers from Nvidia seem to have a problem on some computers.

it is a data CD. I tried uninstalling it from device manager and rebooting but still nothing. Thanks for all the help by the way.
