Optical drive is not recognizing discs

Hey,

I recently installed windows 7 on a new HDD. Now I came up with a problem that the optical drive is not recognizing the discs. I have thought that it may be because of the SATA port, where I have setted as AHCI rather than the IDE. I tried to change from AHCI to IDE, but then it crashes during the loading screen.
I was wondering if anyone who is reading this thread know how I can set up or function the optical drive I have to recognize discs?

What I have in the PC:

M/B GIGABYTE P67A-UD3R-B3
Optical Drive: Liteon iHAS324
HDD: Seagate barracade 1TB

Optical drive is in SATA 3_0
HDD is in SATA2_5

Thank you

  1. ok change your sata mode back the way it was and your windows will boot. IDE and AHCI reffer to your file system so that will affect your hard drive and which file system windows will use, not the optical drive

    So...you're telling me to change the AHCI to IDE...?
