External CD-rom drive not detected by windows 7


I have a new Lenovo Y510 and I installed windows 7 using my external Blu-ray/CD-rom drive without a problem. Recently I tried using my external ROM and it is not even recognized by windows.

I tried all of these: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060 and it still isn't recognized by windows.

I plugged my Blu-ray/CD-rom drive in my older Asus laptop to verify if my drive is broken but it works perfectly just not in my Lenovo Y510.

Is there a solution to this??

  1. If I were you I would contact the drive OEM.
  2. I just resolved the issue by deleting the "initio combo device class" in device manager. I rebooted my PC and voilà!

    My Rom drive is recognized!
