Windows 7: DVD drive doesn't show up

30 Oct 2015   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

flaggoz, just because the drive spins up when a disc is inserted has nothing to do with your PC recognizing the drive. The drive is not communicating with your MOBO at this time, but the drives internal electronics seem to be functioning. Definitely time to unplug and reconnect the drive at both the drive and the MOBO.

P.S. Use an anti-static wrist band to chassis cable to prevent static damage to your computer.
