Assuming this is an IDE drive make sure the jumpers are configured correctly as well as the motherboard BIOS.

in BIOS i have an option of IDE 0, IDE 1 IDE 2 SCSI and CDROMand FLOPPY. can cdrom be an IDE device? IDE 0 is the first boot option. Windows 98 and does not have any knowledge of such a drive and does not detect it at startup,although the drive "lights up" on startup ( i assume this means bios detects it )
help!

Sorry, I'm unable to offer any assistance, but complaining/bumping your thread after 13 minutes won't earn you any friends

(and it's probably better to have this pointed out by me in a polite manner than to get a potentially "snotty" one from a MOD!).

I appreciate how very frustrating it can be, but you should recall that LQ is community (voluntary) support.

Good luck and much success in solving your problem.

regards

the cdrom is an ide device. if the cdrom was set to master and you hooked the hard drive to the same cable with it set as master, probably neither would work. set the cdrom as a slave if it's on the same cable with a hard drive.

I'm not talking about boot options.
Yes make sure if you have the hard drive and the CDROM drive on the same channel that the master/slave jumpers are configured correctly. Misconfigured jumpers will effect other devices.

In the BIOS usually on the first page there is a section that shows the settings for each IDE channel. Make sure it is set to auto for the location of the drive.
