Re: CD-Rom drive won't read mini CDs
okay - went into BIOS and did not see a clear cut place to turn off that second drive, the DVD drive. In fact, the only place I saw the drive listed was under the Advanced tab, under the Secondary IDE Master setting (which it apparently is). I checked out the values there and there was a UDMA setting which was currently at Auto, and I could set to Disable, but was unsure if that was the right place to go. Also, worried that if the DVDRom is the master and I disable the master that somehow the CDRom, as the slave, might not startup properly. If you could shed more light on this, please do. And if I was in the right place to disable the thing (without repercussions), let me know.
While on the topic of BIOS, can you think of any reason why a setting the the BIOS wouldn't hold upon startup. Specifically, I have the NUMLOCK set to ON in Bios and the stupid thing never comes on upon startup. I always have to manually turn it on.
