I have interesting problem that i have not seen before. I have Dell Precision M4500 and i set it up with dual boot. First partition is windows 7 and the second it Ubuntu. The problem is with windows partition and inability to find/recognize the DVD rom. When i open device manager there are no missing drivers or unknown devices. In the Disk Management panel i don't see DVD rom at all (i do see virtual dvd drive).
I checked een viewer and found following error:
Event ID 7
The device,\Device\Cdrom1, has a bad block.
I had no problems with the drive itself when installing windows 7 or ubuntu, but after installing ubuntu my windows side does not recognize DVD anymore. When i put DVD in, my drive spins initially and it still works with Ubuntu, so it is not hardware error.
Any help would be appreciated.
