    Have you tried doing the .dlls copying from W7 to the conresponding locations on W8. See my earlier post.

    Well I tried the copy/paste .dll files which did not seem to help even after a reboot. However what I just did is do a restart and inserted a disk into my DVD drive and allowed it to boot into Windows. Now the drive is recognized?

    Now what I am going to do is reboot without a disk in the drive, and once in Windows insert a disk and see if the operating system recognizes the disk/drive. Will update once I reboot. :-)

    EDIT: Now that I rebooted without a disk in the drive the operating system WILL NOT recognize the DVD drive when I insert a disk.....Very odd indeed LOL. I am sure that this will be figured out once the system is ready for release LOL.

    Aem, are you talking about the DVD drive within Windows 7? or within Windows 8?


    Interesting enough, I booted with a system disk in and it will recognize the DVD drive from then on without issues until a reboot without a system disk inserted. I also inserted a random game disk, rebooted and the operating system would NOT recognize the optical drive. It would seem as though it is a code within the operating system disks. I tried this with both Windows 7 disk and Windows 8 disk and after inserting both disks, it would recognize the drive as long as I stay in Windows 8.

    Interesting to say the least LOL.

    Awesome man, will do both LOL. Of course in Windows 8 I will have to boot with a system disk inserted.

    Also updated my system specs to reflect on what hardware I am running in case this would possibly have some impact on the scenario......Hmm, did not include my optical drive LOL. Will do that now.

    From experience the drivers for these drives are just firmware updates, or if .dlls are corrupt, you could just copy them over. What's the make and model of you laptop?

    First it is not a laptop Aem, it is a self built desktop. I included my system specks to reflect that so that people can compare system specks.

    Now, here is the screenshot from Windows 7:





    And this one is from the Windows 8 once I have the DVD drive recognized........Notice that the second driver file is not included? I copied and pasted that file within the Driver folder in System32?




    Not sure what the heck is going on with that

    Weird how the other dll is not showing up, and could be the missing link. Are you are sure it's copied over without any errors?

    What happen when you scan for new hardware in Device Manager?
