Windows 7: Installed Windows x64 on Dell Inspiron 1545 No DVD-RW

20 Jun 2012   #11

Windows 8 RTM Professional X64

I went to device manager and there a question mark and then my found out my device it is "TSSTcorp DVD+-rw TS-L633B ATA Device" then I searched the internet and I found this link Incompatibility Issues with Windows 7 and the TS-L633B DVD-RW Drive I did what the last post said (cracktech) and then the question mark went away but still the drive doesn't show up.
And I checked the hidden files and it wasn't hidden neither.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

There is a setting in the Windows Explorer options to hide empty drives. That's what I was referring to.

From that link, I sifted through many of the various solutions and came to the drive controllers near the bottom. Do you have the proper Intel AHCI drivers loaded?

Guys thank you all it worked and it is working now I thinks I had to update the Intel AHCI driver and then I restart it after that I used the "TS-L633B_D400" that I downloaded from Dell driver and I searched to .BIN file in the tsdnwin.exe and it is working now, thanks to you guys.

Thank you.
