    today suddenly i got one message at the time of booting "Secondry slave drive--- ATAPI Incompatible..Press F4 to resume . this is my DVD ROM drive which is now not working.My computer does not shows this drive now. I don't know what happen .Is it a hardware error or DVD rom has gone?? Before that DVD rom was working fine. i also try to connect my DVD rom to each IDE cable And also primary or secondry slave but same error occurs. when i conenct to another CD ROM to that cable it works fine..means cable or IDE conenctor are fine.
    i have P4,samsung DVD roM(purchase via digit)
