I am having the weirdest problem and can think of nobody else to turn to right now.
My motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 and I am having a serious issue with my Lite-On internal blu-ray reader/burner ( model IHBS112 )
One day it just vanished from My Computer. Poof.
It can be seen in Device Manager as ATAPI iHBS112 1 ATA Device ... if I try and update the drivers, whelp, its says they ARE updated ...
... according to drivers from 2006???
Lite-On does not suppoer drivers since the SATA link is supposed to be all I need. Uninstalling/Reactivating the device does nothing. It just appears back in the same useless state it was in before.
I get this error ~
Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)
Is this a virus? I suspect I need to load windows drivers to USB drive and just re-install everything, but I was curious if anybody knew about this 'kind' of nonsense and what it might be.
