Yesterday i finished my C2D build based on the Gigabyte P35-DS3R Mobo. (latest BIOS)
Today i found a weird problem: sometimes my optical drives simply dissappear! I have a Samsung SH-S203N drive and one virtual drive by Alcohol 120%. The drive letters are present, but when i click them, it says theres no disc present (this happens even on the virtual drive, while Alcohol shows theres an ISO file mounted). The drives dissappear in applications as Nero CD-Speed and ImgBurn too, however they are still present in the device manager.
After a system reboot the drives usually appear and work correctly (i did not have too much time for testing, tough).
My guess is, that is a driver problem, but i have no idea how to solve it. I tried to install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager, but the installer says my system does not meet the requirements…
Any idea what could be wrong ???
