I know cd drives are a bit out dated but i still use mine, well at least i try. Basically i went to import a song to itunes but autorun wouldnt show up when i inserted the disk. I then looked into my computer file to see if i could manually run the autorun but the disk drive was not listed so after ensuring all cables were secure and a reboot i look into the device manager and still i see no drive listed. The drive has power and started to spin when the disk was inserted so maybe theres a problem with the sata cable. Any help please ? Also merry christmas to all
try different ports and cables
If you're running windows 10 (and it was a clean install, not an upgrade) then you're out of luck because the OS does not support ODD.
If the above need not apply, then check the SATA connection.
EDIT: Kat had a really good thread outlining the nooks, crannies, and pitfalls of win10. Its worth the read.
show hidden devices, nothing?
it was an upgrade to win10 but either way thats pretty shitty
Thanks so much i got it through the 3/4th method. The 4th actually cuz cba to do it cmd makes it so much easier ;)
I googled it and someone recommended that article. it's amazing windows 10 has problems with cd drives at all.
