Since I have tried installing (unsuccessfully)OSX on my Beige G3 (needed to be installed on first 8 gigs of hard drive), my CD's don't mount on the desktop. I am now running 9.2. I can reinstall the Apple CD/DVD driver and reboot, then it works. But when I restart again the disks don't mount and if I try to open the CD player, it says that the CD/DVD driver isn't in the system folder or didn't load. It is there and I've tried trashing the prefs for that file, reinstalling the system software, upgrading to 9.2 from 9.1. Still the same problem. I've been told I might have a bad RAM chip. I have no other problems with my machine at this time. Can anyone help out?

Mike

Check your extension manager, and make sure that Apple CD/DVD Driver is selected in the Extension submenu. Thats the only thing I can think of right now... better safe then sorry...

Thanks,
I use Conflict Catcher and that Extension shows that it loads.

For what it's worth, Have you tried Zapping the PRAM?. I've seen strange hardware recognition problems disappear with that simple procedure. Worth a try. Maybe yes, maybe no.

one trick i use is to create a virgin system folder (don't delete the old one) with only the apple extensions, control panels and fonts.

then see if your system mounts DVDs

if yes, check for a confilct
if no, then check hardware

TechTool Pro has a good RAM check routine that u can literally run for days if u wish

i think there are some freebies out there but if u use ConflictCatcher, i am sure you would like TechTool Pro 3.0.9 (i believe is the latest incarnation) as one of your tools

it comes on a bootable CD
www.micromat.com for more info.
