a common problem that I cannot sort.
I have a Liteon SSM-8515S drive in my Fujitsi Siemens Amilo Pi 1505.
The common problem of drive disappearing in windows 7 has been around for a while on my laptop but now the drive isn’t even recognised in BIOS either!! This is becoming very frustrating.
I have tried every fix I can find - filters etc reflashed the BIOS to older versions with no joy either.
The DVD drive works fine in a USB enclosure. It also tries to work in the laptop (it opens the drive and spins a disc up with the drive light coming on) but nothing is detected anymore.
The drive has the GSO9 firmware? If I remember correctly.
Any new ideas will be gratefully received.
