    Cd drive on PC no longer works after instal of windows 8

    I've just installed windows 8. Among one of the many problems I appear to have encountered with the installation is the fact that my cd drive no longer works on my PC.

    I cannot access a fix online as it does not also recognise my netgear USB wireless adaptor. I have put the netgear cd to reinstall but the disc does not appear. I have also put a cd in to check the drive and cannot get that to play.
    Having looked at fixes for windows 7 etc I can locate device manager but cannot see a section on DVD/CD ROM To reinstall.

    Help would be appreciated.

    Disconnecting one of my sata hard drives for me worked - I rebooted with it missing - then the dvd drive showed, then reconnected the hard drive and all good.
