    This is a problem a girl I know is having:

    - 2 drives, 1 hp cd rw and a toshiba dvd drive - p4, asus motherboard, windows XP Home
    - The computer stopped recognizing either of the drives after awhile. (it will recognize both once every 2 or 3 months but that's it)
    - If i unplug one of the drives the other drive will be recognized and will work - together they won't work.
    -i've tried different cables but that doesnt change anything

    any ideas?
