RE: re.dvd rom missing
I have exactly the same problem as you do!
What I did back then was change the jumper settings to Cable Select for both
drives (before I had Master / Slave Jumper). This did the trick, but then
after a month I had the same problem again, even with System Restore I
couldn't get it to work. I have no clue what to do now.
