A complete shot in the dark ... reinstall your busmaster drivers?Quote:>My CD-ROM will play music CD's or data CD's but not both without

Hi, I have a Packard Bell computer and have replaced the cd-rom just over
a month ago. Now, the cd-rom plays some music cd's but won't recognize my
windows 95 or other data disks. When I boot up the computer the driver is
loading and the busy light come on the cd-rom but when I insert a data
disk (Windows 95) it shows there's no disk in drive D insert a disk and
try again. I'm running WFWG 3.11 The cd-rom is a CR-563-B
