This is my first message... HELLO! I have an older del GX240 and my cd rom makes noise like it is running but, it won't read the cd's... It seems to be a problem with the windos driver I have tried to uninstall then reinstall the hardware but the problem does not correct. When looking in my computer area it doesn't show the E drive. But, again if I put a cd in it will start up or makes noise like it is working but, NADA! It is an LG-CD ROM CRD-8482-B. I use Windows 2000 pro. Any heroes out there? HELP!
