DVD drive not found in Windows 7.

Postby ModeratorNA » Tue May 31, 2016 2:49 pm

Many times your DVD drive may not be found by Windows 7, even if it is visible in the BIOS and using the standard driver. Click on Start option and select run - type Disk Management and choose the "Create and format hard disk partitions" link. If your optical drive is visible here then right-click it, select Change Drive Letter and Paths, click Change and choose a new letter. If the drive is now visible in Explorer, then repeat the process to change the drive letter back; if it's still not visible, reboot and it should appear.
