    After windows 8 install no DVD drives will show up in win8

    I installed windows 8 on my SSD drive and now it will not see the DVD drives. They don't even show up in computer management. In device driver they have yellow tags saying the certificates are not signed? Why would that keep them from working? I tried to update the drivers but no help. On is a Sony DVDRW and the other is a TTS DVDRW about 5 years old. Any ideas?
