Default not recognizing cd/dvd drive

All of the sudden my computer doesn't show my CD or DVD drive in my computer any more, and it won't load anything from them...it just started after I installed the software for my ATI tv tuner, then I uninstalled it and no it doesn't work. I'm using Vista Ultimate and my DVD burner is a samsung, the CD burner idk what brand it is, I pulled it out of a Dell. They've been working just fine up until now.

Default Re: not recognizing cd/dvd drive

My samsung does this occasionally its a new one and it sometimes isnt detected by the pc or windows, and sometimes the text telling u what the drive is, gets corrupted, does urs do this? what i did was to install them on opposite ide channels so only 1 dvd/cd drive per channel. So far so good. Have u unplugged the samsung from the power and then plugged it back in again? this also helped me.

One thing u dont clarify, is the pc seeing the drive in the Post screen? or is it just windows not seeing it. If its just windows, try uninstalling the dvd/ide drivers and letting it find them again.

I was gonna suggest repairing the upper and lower filters, but thats for XP, and i dont know if vista uses the same.

Have you done the usual like system restore, checking device manager, seems like its a driver issue tho coz its happened after you installed your tv tuner.

Also worth running windows update coz they are releasing compatible drivers all the time now.
