    lost cd writer upon win 10 install


    My CD writer is recognized by the asus bios , but after installing win 10, the OS does not recognize it. I have moved the sata cable from one port to the other, and tried several other things, all to no avail. Anyone have a suggestion?? *Sad

    Everything else works fine!

  2. Can I get a driver for my cd/dvd writer for my laptop after upgrading to windows 10 from windows 8, 8.1 again so I can still use my cd/dvd writer?

    After upgrading from windows 8 to 8.1 to windows 10 I lost the cd/dvd writer driver, now I can't use my cd/dvd writer anymore which I know will be removed ( driver ) after installing or upgrading to windows 10. Can Microsoft will send me the driver for my
    cd/dvd writer even I need to pay a certain fee, so I can able to use my cd/dvd writer again?

    Actually I restored twice to windows 8 but I can't still use my cd/dvd writer anymore.

    My laptop is Toshiba and Samsung is the cd/dvd writer.

  3. Since upgrading to Windows 10, my CD/DVD player/writer has disappeared

    Upon upgrading to Windows 10, I no longer have access to my CD/DVD player/writer on my desktop PC. It is not available whatsoever. I put in a CD or DVD and nothing happens. I cannot find it when I look in settings or anything.

    Please help.

    Have you looked at the Device Manager to see ifs shown there with an error code? (what is the error code?)

    If its shown in the Device Manager, try uninstalling the CD drive in the Device Manager. Then restart Windows and check to see if Windows detects and installs it after the reboot.

    Unfortunately, it is not shown in device manager. I tried to use the check for new devices also. Nothing found.

    Seen resolution 3 here to work for some, as long as sure no connections inside came loose power or SATA cables.
    Does draw open, any sound from it ? Chances it might be bad (cd-rom) if none of these work.

    Install the latest AHCI driver for your SATA controller should fix it.

    Do you know what your motherboard is so I can tell you which driver to use?


    I had this happen in when installing 8.1 on a Dell Inspiron. The DVD drive was in BIOS but not in windows or in device manager. Installing a newer or older SATA driver fixed it.

    Might not be case since Windows 10 has those drivers in OS. Fond this out for myself at least for Intel. As should still be detected with standard drivers for DVD and CD ROM drives.

    If you look in your device manager I will bet its a Standard AHCI driver that was loaded.

    Yep, just like mine, i questioned my motherboard manufacturer and they are fine, my DVD ROM works fine.One above it for SATA 3 where my 0-5 ports are and SSD are on.

    Or best bet, check the BIOS see if they are there.

    Opps your not the poster who had issues. But do you want the correct driver for your Standard AHCI device? All I need is the hardware ID in the device properties.

    How i screwed up my system after upgrade thinking i needed newer controller drivers as Windows 10 has them already,at least for Intel. OP choice to try that, be prepared as mine did not boot after that.

    On my board here its using a windows 7 driver from last year which is AMD SATA controller on Windows 10. My board also has a ASmedia SATA ports and those drivers are working too. I wonder why yours did not boot after installing drivers.. Usually that issue is when someone switches the SATA mode from AHCI to IDE and Vice Versa in BIOS.

    Because i tried to install it on one said standard AHCI not first one you see in my pic of device manager. Spoke to Gigabyte told me did not need to install any because Windows 10 has updated for Intel, usually you preinstalled these drivers before the OS.
    I tried after the upgrade, then would not restart. If OP has Intel will be same, not sure about AMD only other manufacturer anyway. Basically the BIOS detects what you plug in, and system will still recognize DVD ROM.

    New guy here with the same problem. I upgraded from Win 7 to 10 on an old Acer Aspire 5810TZ Laptop to test it out and it is not recognizing that my CD/DVD drive exists. It doesn't show up in the device manager at all.
