Missing SATA DVD drive?

    Hi,

    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.

Hi, When I go to Computer Management my main (OS) drive shows as "Disk 1" and my 2nd internal data drive shows as "Disk 0". Should I switch the SATA cables so that the main drive will show as "Disk 0 and the 2nd internal drive as "Disk 1"? Or should I ignore this? Thanks.
Hi, I have 3 disks in my computer, of which 2 are SSDs. I swapped the SATA ports between one SSD and the HDD so as to give the SSD a SATA port with maximum 6gb/s transfer speed, and now the access to the HDD is denied. The drive letters are correct, as they should be. The user (myself,...

Here's the deal: I threw away my old computer, but kept the Windows 7 SATA drive. I bought a new computer with Windows 8, and plugged my Windows 7 drive into the next SATA slot hoping to be able to setup a dual boot mode. Of course, nothing is ever that easy. I can access the Win 7 drive through...
Don't have many of the specifics of the computer with me. Generally speaking, I have an older (circa 2006), but still pretty darned capable, Gateway FX Desktop. It's running Win7 on a SATA 2. Want to buy a new drive to dual boot with Win8. In general, are the SATA 3 drives backwards compatible with...
