    First post so I hope you guys can help! I have 2 Atapi DVD A DH20A4H ATA drives and at first everything was great. Installed no problem. After a month or so WIN7 stop recognizing them. They are found in Device Manager with a yellow mark. Ive tried upgrading firmware but it just says its not detected. Im no install beginner but this has me at wits end!!

    I actually did some searching around and found this link that worked like a charm:

    Windows 7 Not Recognizing DVD Drive | Windows 7 News

    I did both the fixes to make sure. Rebooted and viola drives are back :D . It has to do with some of the checks windows does. Hope it works for u as well
