DVD-RW drive stopped working. Not recognized in Windows 7
Posted on 2012-08-23
My DVD drive stopped working yesterday when I put a disc in it to copy. It won't open, and Windows 7 doesn't recognize the drive. I replaced the SATA cable, rebooted, and tried to let the troubleshooter do its magic (at the suggestion of some other posts on EE).
It still won't work though, and I know it's an easy fix I just can't remember what it is. It's recognized in the BIOS, and works fine using a Fedora Live DVD.
