I wanted to connect my external DVD drive to my old laptop and boot from a CD. But my computer doesn't show the DVD drive in the boot menu.
After trying to change BIOS settings and finally restored them to defaults, it still does not work.
I can't even hear the DVD drive working until Windows XP or Ubuntu are loaded. After the OS loaded, it works like nothing is wrong. And the mysterious thing is, that this drive has worked on this laptop before. Never a problem.
New to that is maybe, that I borrowed some friend the laptop but she only used Windows XP to write some stuff, but I can't think of what she have done.
The DVD drive works well on other computers to boot from. Other USB drives work well on the laptop.
How can I fix this problem?
