cdrom disappears

By roastdoug ·
I recently tried to run the DVD-rom content from a dvd movie. Since then, I'll get a system or explorer error every time I try to use my dvd or cdrom drive, after which they disappear. They always reappear after shutting down for a day or so, but I cannot use them. Why is this happening, and how can I fix it?

Sounds like the drivers got corrupted.

Remove the DVD drive drivers, reboot, and reinstall. If the problem still persists, do the same with your cd-rom drivers.

I've done a full reformat of the drive and re-installed Win 98, including all the drivers, and the problem persists. Any more suggestions?
