If that's not the problem then you need to check your connections from the drive to the motherboard. Also, if it's the older ribbon cable you could have issues with Master/Slave/Cable Select issues if not jumpered correctly. m 0 l aford10 a b G Storage July 23, 2010 2:43:39 PM photonboy said:If it's Windows 7 that is normal. The drive doesn't show until a disc is inserted. You must have some magical drives. That's not normal on any windows 7 PC that I've seen. @Mezan Does the drive show in the BIOS? If yes, try running this Fixit scan. http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cd_dvd_drive_problems If that doesn't help, delete your upper and lower filters. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982116 m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
