there is no other in my device manager... im bout to check bios.
nope not in bios.. where would it appear exactly?
i see a floppy zip drive option i put it to on since i plugged the cd-r where that was but im lost after that.
anybody? do i have to reconnect the zip drive and connect it to the original cd-r slot???
Since you there's no sign of it detected in BIOS or Dev Mgr?? sounds like a Hardware (instead of a Windows) issue
suggest you post a new thread with new appropriate title to get the attention of the hardware guys..
Closing thread, original problem solved. New thread has response already.
