Crash knocked out CDs. How do I get them back?

Post by NTAgU29tZX » Wed, 04 Feb 2004 10:21:07


XP Pro crashed. Then during reboot it checked the C drive for errors and found some, truncating files
After that I had no CD drives in my Windows Explorer.
I had just installed Iomega's DVD drivers. It crashed during the last part of that
During reboot it said a DVD driver was going to make the system unstable, so it would not allow it to load
I uninstalled all the Iomega software. No good. I deleted the devices from the Device Manager and let XP re-find them. The always come up with yellow Xs and say the cannot be loaded
I have installed Service Pak 1a hoping that would restore the files

My last hope was to re-install XP as an upgrade, but I can't do that without a working CD
Can anyone suggest anything ?
