I recently installed Windows 7 with high hopes, but not impressed with the performance. Now my computer won’t recognize the DVD drive. My computer is pretty new, I purchased it few weeks ago from <!– m –><a class="postlink" href="http://www.dealrocker.com/promotions/newegg/deals/">http://www.dealrocker.com/promotions/newegg/deals/</a><!– m –>. I am not sure exactly what the name of the drive is called, but it is listed as HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH10L in device manager. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Could you be more specific about the exact problem?
Does the drive show up in Computer or only Device Manager?
Does it simply not read dvd’s/cd’s?
I have the older version of your dvd drive, the HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH20NS10, and there’s been no problems with it (though I rarely use optical media any more).
You installed Windows yourself – did you perform a clean install or did you upgrade? Additionally, would you happen to be using Apple iTunes? Many people report problems with dvd and cd drives after an upgrade with iTunes installed.

Open system and insure the DVD device is set a Master or slave depending on how you have it installed. (Windows 7 does not like CABLE SELECT).
