    DVD-Drive not detected windows 8 32 bit

    i know my dvd drive was working a few weeks ago cause i used it to load up shogun 2 total war. My bios recognizes my driver but i dont see it any were in my device manager. Any help would be very much appreciated
    BTW i was running windows 7 and had no issues with my dvd driver
    Update i click show hidden devices and i see my dvd but i cant find it anywhere when i look in my computer and when i put a disk in it dosnt boot up the cd or anything :S. i also asked it to check for updates but it says i have the latest updates for the drive and the device is working properly
