Why does my BIOS not detect DVD SATA drive Asus, 20X DVD Burner with Lightscribe, DRW-2014LIT.
Posted on 2008-02-05
My new ASUS SATA DVD burner is not detected by the BIOS, which has detected other SATA drives. It is now set at "RAID Auto Detect/AHCI", which is the default setting. This has worked for three other SATA hard drives without problems.
I have a COMBO plug that does supply power to the new DVD drive, but the BIOS still does not detect it. Both the COMBO plug and the drive are new. What might I be doing wrong? This drive is a popular one and works well with many other people.
