After about 6 months of trying to fix it myself I've finally given up and decided to ask you guys. After 1000's of reboots and uninstalling/installing mixed with mucking around with settings around the BIOS etc Ive given up. just cant seem to get this working and i need some help. The problem is that my computer will not recognize any DVD/CD drives but yet it the computer see's its that a Drive is there. Ive tried the following things so far: Changing from Master/Slave/CS Uninstalling and Installing Through Device Manager Going through the BIOS and trying to get every setting correct Deleting and Installing DVD drive Registries just to name a few. Any ideas???
