i was looking through device manager today when i noticed that my two cd-rom devices are listed under "unknown" in device manager. both used to be listed under cd-rom (or whatever it is used to be). both of my cd drives still work. i just remember doing normal stuff like winamp, games, etc. it is pretty strange. i have tried removing both drives from device manager (also from safe mode). uninstalled the drivers. physically reinstalled the drives again. only installed one drive or the other. tried a different ide slot. used a different ide cable. the latest drivers for both of my cd drives are from the windows xp cd. it is a minor annoyance but i'm running out of idea to make my cd drives more normal. please, does anyone know what's up with my computer?!!! Partial specs CD Drives -Sony CRX300E -Generic 20x10 CD-R/RW OS -Windows XP Pro SP1 rest of my specs are in my profile. thanks.
