I recently downgraded, from Windows 8, to Windows 7 Home Premium, on a Toshiba Satellite L555D-s7005. I have installed all of the available drivers, from the Toshiba website, but the system is still not able to recognize the optical drive. I know that there should really not be a problem, with the internal hardware, because the drive worked perfectly well, while installing the Windows 7 OS. I have completed all of the steps listed on the following link, with no luck. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/314060/your-cd-or-dvd-drive-is-not-recognized-by-windows-or-other-programs
If someone could please assist me with this issue, I would greatly appreciate it. I'm really not sure what to try next. I would like to add, that I have also checked the internal drive, for any loose connections, and everything is secure.
Thank you, for your time.
