    Ok I had a problem with the demo of win 8 and bootcamp in that the CD/DVD player wasn't recognized ( not showing in dev manager ) .
    This problem was resolved somehow but I do not recall how !!! I have recently installed the pro version of 8 and I have the same problem .... ANYONE ???

    Alright, a couple of possible solutions here.

    Can you try this program? It is portable and it is designed for Windows 7, but it works perfectly fine in Windows 8:
    Download CD-DVD Icon Repair Free - Repair missing CD or DVD drive from Windows or other programs. - Softpedia

    If not, I may have another one.
