Dell Dimension 8300, 3.0 Ghz. Windows XP, 2.5 GB RAM, GeForce 256 RAM, Samsung DVD Rom
I reformatted my hard drive so I could create partitions and clean up 3 years of stuff. I also was adding RAM and a new graphics cards.
DVD Rom worked fine before.
After reformat and installation of Windows XP (it was an older version that came with the Dell in 03) I placed a DVD in the drive and it spun but did nothing. So, I downloaded Dell's driver for the Samsung (something I had to put on a floppy). Rebooted with the floppy but the process kept hanging - after that, the DVD Rom is not being recognized.
Now when I boot, I get the error:
Secondary Drive Not Found 0
Secondary Drive Not Found 1
So, I press F1 and everything loads normal.
In the BIOS (updated to latest version) in the boot device sequence section, the CD Rom states its not installed but its working fine
I have updated XP to SP2 and downloaded all the new drivers I can think of. It still wont see it.
Thank you in advance!
