I'm running WinXP SP3 with 2 optical drives - one DVD rom and the other DVD writer. I just purchased a new SATA bluray drive, removed the DVD rom and replaced with the new drive but y PC doesn't recognise the new drive. The BD rom powers up fine but nothing. Its a Lite-On HOS104.
Any suggestions gratefully received!
Both. I have restarted several times and it has only recognised as a drive once in the BIOS but when it loaded into Windows, i tried to access the drive but Windows froze and I had to do a forced restart and the next time, and each time since it botted up, the drive isn' recognised!
