DVD Recognition Problem! HELP!!!
Hi all, i built a computer last christmas, and its been working fine for 6 or 7 months. Yesterday, i decided it was time to be reformatted. I popped in my Windows XP Disk and went through all the steps. Everything worked great and windows loaded perfectly.
No heres the trouble, ever since i reformated, i cant get my system to recognize my Plextor SATA DVD Burner. Its not there! i tried adding new hardware, which didnt have my drive on its list. I tried checking my device manager, and no DVD drive is listed on that either. Obviously the drive isnt broken due to the fact that i reinstalled windows with it. Nothing worked so i tried putting my windows disk back in, and restarting the computer. In the BIOS menu it asks if i want to boot from disk. I do that and can reinstall window. Ive done this probably 5 times now, and every time, my DVD drive is not recognized.
Any help would be amazing, and i apologize for any vaugeness. Thanks guys!
