Puter .....yes, again, but Lloyd be my hero!!:-)
(I think Lloyd deserves another picture!)
1:20 update to the post below:
My friend, Lloyd, called me over his lunch hour and told me to sign onto MSN to give him remote control of my computer. He's the only person on the planet I would do that with. At any rate, I watched my browser move all around my screen (while I just sat here dizzily), go to RUN and from there into the registry. There, he made a few edits and...wow, my two drives are back! i've tested and retested with music and data cd's and it all works. I even again shut off the puter and turned it back on and they were STILL THERE.
Lloyd, how can I ever thank you enough? You're truly wonderful! Smart, too.
In attempting to update my music player, I lost my CD ROM and DVD drives. GONE from Windows Explorer and My Computer. Control Panel /device manager says the drives are corrupted, but every attempt to install a different drive just gives me a default message saying 'the drivers you have are the best'.
Ever feel like you were on a treadmill??
I had help troubleshooting. I'm sure Lloyd is ready to throttle me by now.
Am exhausted. Computers can be like a bad marriage when they go wrong. Sigh.
