a few days ago, my cd-rom quite suddenly stopped working. At this point, I am not positive if it quits working while Im running windows 98, or before it boots up. What I mean by not working is that under my computer, the E: just.. does not appear. I can gain use of my cd-rom through use of a DOS boot diskette, and I even tried copying the MSCDEX commands into my config and autoexec files, which DID load up my cd-rom, however it would not autoplay files, nor recognize cd's actually being placed into the cd drive. I could insert the diskette for a game, and the drive would not read the cd label, but I could browse the files within. However, games wouldn't run as they 'could not detect the cd. Has anyone heard of a similar problem?
