I bought a SATA DVD drive which shoudl arrive tonight...
I have anoterh older cable where the connectors are marked CD and HD. The newer ones are not.
Plese check that and let us know
Its Sata , i have tryed to connect to other connector's but still nothin .I also tryed the connect it whit new cables but still nothing.

Vista Ult64, Win7600

Hi, try this, go into Device Manager and right click on your DVD player, and when the option window comes up select Uninstall and click ok, when it has Uninstalled the Dvd
player click the button on the top of the Device Manager page that says,
Scan for hardware changes,
let windows reinstall it and see if that helps.

Windows 7 x64 finally!

adcsi, try the Vista drivers for your North Bridge: MSI Europe – Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more
this is for the V2 of your board, if it is V3, MSI Europe – Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more
I noticed one worrisome warning on their website:
MSI Reminds you:
Because of the limitations of chipset, this MB does not support Win98/ME.
It might be your board will not work well with Win7
