    Where, oh where has my D: drive gone?

    BIOS show my D: drive and it appears on MS-DOS. But it doesn't appear on My Computer nor Device Manager on Win 98SE. Does this mean I need a new CD-ROM drive?

    No, it does not.

    What did you do when it was happened? If you answer "nothing", why did you log on?

    Try to reinstall drivers. To do this:
    1. Boot to Safe mode (pressing F5 during bootup or pressing F8 and choosing "Safe Mode" from the menu).
    2. When in Safe Mode, open Control Panel | System | Device Manager and remove ALL hard disk controllers.
    3. Shut down the computer.
    4. Power up the computer. Let Wizard recognize your IDE controllers and drives. If prompted, insert your Win98 Installation CD.

    Thank you, I appreciate your response. I learned the problem was in the Primary and Secondary Ultra IDE controllers. When I removed them on the Device Manager and rebooted, everything was ok. So now my CD drives are working fine.

    Thanks again,
