The first vista updates on my rig weren't quite sucessful. I ended up losing both a hard drive and my dvd burner... They are not listed in the devices, nor the disk management (for the HDD).
Funnily enough, I only lost one hard drive out of three, and the DVD Drive. I ended up downloading the nForce drivers for my 790i, which didn't change anything. I then thought that the sata connector might have blown... nope. I simply unplugged, rebooted, plugged, and it worked.
However, this method does not work for the DVD Drive. Any ideas?
** I am currently downloading SP1, hoping that it may fix it, but keep in mind that everything worked fine without updates...
odd. As a last resort you can explore you bios, see if you can emulate IDE over sata ports. There isn't really any performance difference. The only time you can't do this is if your running RAID, are using Esata or have hotswap drives.
IF you open computer management, (right click computer, manage) and go to disk management and there is nothing, then i've got nothing...sorry..
Thanks for the help, finally got it working. I ended unplugging the drive, plugging it back in (like I did with my Hard Drives); at this point it showed in other devices, so I installed the drivers, and it is finally working.
