Missing SATA DVD drive?

    Windows 8 (64-bit)


    this is what the other posts I found said to add to the registry

    reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001

    Didn't solve it for me although lots of other posters said it had solved it for them. PC was new last August and came with Win 8 on it so I assume MoBo is compatible - haven't had any other issues with it.

    Have an intel i5 3.2Ghz processor with 8Gb RAM. MoBo is a Gigabyte GA-H61M-DS2 DVI

    Hot-plugging is already disabled on all SATA ports - it was set up that way so I left it disabled.
