Hey guys…newbie posting out of total desperation and needing help!
I bought a Samsung SH-D162D DVD Drive in a USB enclosure to connect to my Toshiba Windows 7 laptop.
I cannot get windows to find it! When I plug in the USB cable the balloon comes up to say it has been installed, I can see it on My Computer for about 1 or 2 minutes then it drops off. It isnt listed in my hardware or anything.
It is set to slave, the IDE connector and power connectors are fine. Its gotta be a windows 7 problem cause it does show up very breifly. In the minute or 2 its there I cant do anything with it…it just hangs although it will open and close. Ive googled it and cant find anything…mainly registry issues but they didnt help.
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
