Which OS, other hardware, burning software?

I assume that they all did work.

Start by opening device manager and removing the IDE controllers.
Re-boot and with any luck, Windows will repair the controller drivers.

For Windows, do NOT install the CD-ROM driver that comes on a floppy. This driver is for DOS mode access ONLY.

If this is a new system, download and install the IDE driver for the chip-set on the motherboard.

Unplug all but one can you see/read it. Plug in another can you see both? Third it is the problem, What ever is not viewable is the problem drive (streaming data).

BTW - Just ran into this CD/HD an no boot drive, CD was bad and pressing processor to ignore HD!
