    Do you mean it doesn't show up in Windows Explorer or it doesn't show up in Device Manager?
  3. power cycle your machine and see if it is detected in windows device manager right after a boot. I have a old asus dvd drive and It sometimes takes me 4 or 5 attempts to get it to work. I figure it is a firmware issue, the last firmware I found was from 2009 so I just work around the issue. (also, if I leave a disk in the drive, it seems to not disappear)
