Windows 7: New motherboard...Windows Explorer will not recognize 2nd DVD drive

New motherboard...Windows Explorer will not recognize 2nd DVD drive

Just installed an Asus M5A78L-M LX MB without need to reisntall...etc...the system. Seems to be running fine

Also installed a Masscool ide board ( XWT-PCIE15 ) since this new board does not have an ide slot and I have the subject IDE DVD drive.

Bios recognizes the DVD at startup...can set the DVD as 1st boot device...etc....but

Windows will not recognize the Memorex DVD drive at all.

I have the current drivers for the Masscool XWT-PCIE15...but no help from Masscool or their site on how to install the drivers ?

Here's the 2 expanded directories for the IDE 7 Sata current divers in the attached jpgs::

Any ideas on how and what to run/install in order for windows to recognized the DVD drive on the PCIe slot ?

Have not heard from Masscool and have found numerous other posts on this card that say don't expect any answers from them ?

Thanks....TRinAZ
