Hello again. since installing my new SSD ( Samsung evo 120gb) and migrating my OS (WIN 7 64bit home premium), I been having one problem after another. My present issue is my DVD drive (Plextor px-850sa)

1) Device not showing in the device manager.
2) Device shows up in my computer as removable device labeled as an F: drive.
3)In BIOS, the dvd drive is shown as "Lexmark USB mass storage 200".

As I said above I installed the SSD and migrated my OS. I presently have SSD labeled as C: drive and my HDD as my D: drive for storage. The dvd drive is shown as an F; drive. Now what's happening is when I place a disc in my dvd- rom a light comes on then goes off and nothing else. I further get a message to place a disc in the player or check my device manager. I have back checked every thing I have done so far, but nothing seems to work. BTW I'm really a novice at this so I'm putting my faith in this community in trying to get some help in resolving this matter. Thank you all in advance.

Just try to remove the DVD drive, then connect it properly, see what happens.
