    DVD drive not found

    Just got this drive and installed it, but it isn't shown on My Computer. It's not on the device manager but it is shown in the bios. It's connected via this to a sata port.

    I can't find any drivers on the NEC website so I don't know how to make it show.

    Cheers for any help,
    Chris.

    Does it work if you connect it to the IDE port on the motherboard with an IDE cable?
