Dvd Drive Fails To Read or Write Under Windows 7

Ok I have 2 drives (connected one at a time to try and sort this issue)
SONY AD-7260S and a LITE-ON

Now from upgarding to XP to 7
I had no issues until now...
When inserting Disc (Blank or Data Files) the DVD Drive will hang and not ask what to do with the Disk and when I try to Burn the disc it will say cannot write to drive or just sit there doing nothing

Both these drives worked flawlessly with XP and only way to get the drive to recognise half the time with Win7 is to restart PC to either get it to show in Device Manager or press eject when booting to get the disk inside out.

Both drives are Sata and are only a few months old (not burned much and work exceeelnet on another xp machine)

Try going into Bios and make sure they are enabled, if you make any changes just do save and exit.

Where it says port Sata 4 it should say either the name of your DVD drive or enabled etc, also if you have 2 DVD drives the other one should be listed on port Sata 3 they both have to be enabled for them to work.
