Missing CD DVD drive!?


Standard Member
installed a new hard drive and i noticed my CD DVD drive was missing went to Device Manager and updated what i could, still not there. i did this thing where you delete Filters for somewhere deep in the PC and the CD DVD Drive is still missing

i put my old hard drive in and although i can see the icon the CD DVD drive does not seem to be there.

Have i some how destroyed my Drive when i put in my new hard drive or did i manage to pull some wires out. is it common that you can break yr CD drive by inserting a new hard drive, are they that delicate...

Have you right clicked in device manager and scanned for hardware changes?

The only other thing i can think of is if it isn't correctly set up in the bios
