    Hi all,

    Appreciate anyone could give me some ideas on how to solve this problem.

    My 44x cd-rom drive was working fine before.

    But it stopped working all of a sudden after I renew a new motherbaord nforce3 MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum and AMD64 Processor.

    The windows XP with Service pack 2 detected the CDROM and the device manager says everything is OK but it just could not read anything inserted and telling me I should "insert a disk"

    I thought it was caused by service pack 2 but when i Uninstalled it, it is still the same.

    The CDROM is connected to a Secondary IDE (slave) with the primary connecting to my DVD CDRW.

    My specs is as follow :

    MSI K8N Neo 2 Platimum
    1GB cosair Ram
    Seagate 160GB Sata HDD
    Seagate 40GB (Master IDE)
    DVD CDRW (Secondary Master)
    CDROM (Secondary Slave)
    Creative Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS

    Many Thanks

    Maybe try a ide config swap, your new board mightnt like the current setup. Try your HDD all alone on IDE 1, then run your CD-ROM as IDE 2 master and DVD as IDE 2 Slave. Or run your CD-ROM as a a slave on IDE 1, just jumble around. I had to do that with mine to get my board to accept my DVD-ROM.
