Windows 7: Blu Ray drive missing

Blu Ray drive missing

This issue usually happens on my Vista 32, but now it's happening on Win 7. Blu Ray intermittently shows and disappears from device manager upon boot. Yet in posting it shows. I've even used the drive in a repair. Reboot, not there.

Sony BDU-X10S

Anyone else have issues with this particular drive or a similar situation?

My Samsung DVD has never done this. Only the blu ray.

What is the model of the computer because it could be a power or connection issue.

I run 3 OS's...This is the only 1 I have issues with....So it's not a psu issue. Hell, the other Win7 issue is PhotoGallery crashes every time I try to run it. So now I can't even view photos.....Should've stayed with Vista.
