So, it's just what the title says: when I have my Windows 8 machine set up to dual boot with Linux Mint, I cannot access my DVD drive in any way under Windows 8. The SATA and power cables are both secure, and it's definitely functional (it's also about a month old). As soon as I obliterate the Linux installation and repair the master boot record, everything goes back to normal and the DVD drive shows up fine again. Has anyone encountered this before/does someone have a solution?
