I have just checked the bios...i activated all the drives and i only got the CD drive to work. Both drives have power. But when i put a disk into either one nothing happens. And before windows loaded i get an error saying "Disk 0 is performing outside normal ____" (i forgot the last word(s).

Can you see the drives in disk management? now that they're enabled in bios you could have Drive letter conflicts.

When i open disk management i see three drives (Disk 0: Local drive C; Disk 1: Local Disk D; Then my CD drive: no letter) My DVD drive is nowhere to be found.
