View Full Version : Optical drive playing up

29-05-2006, 05:00 PM
I built a computer recently. I turn it on no problems, even the CD/DVD drive working but after a short time Windows doesn't detect it. It instead shows a drive B:\, which doesn't exist. It is a Sony DDU1615. :help:

More info....

Is it on primary or secondary? Slave or Master?
What version of Windows?

The BIOS is showing it correctly?
Have you tried going into Disk management and manually assigning it to D: or E:?

It works fine as drive D:, but a short while later it won't eject. This is when Windows doesn't see it, and sees a drive B:. BIOS sees it.
