I cannot see my CD-ROM drive from NT?

A. If it is a IDE CD-ROM Drive ensure you have the ATAPI CD-ROM driver installed (or one supplied with drive).

  1. In Control Panel, double click SCSI adapters (I know its IDE, but trust me)
  2. There should be a ATAPI CD-ROM driver, if there is not continue
  3. Click on the Drivers tab.
  4. Add, standard mass storage device, and select the ATAPI driver. If it is SCSI and you have a disk, click have disk and then select your drive.
  5. Click OK
  6. Reboot

If it is a SCSI CD-ROM ensure the correct SCSI driver is loaded.
