    maybe your cables arent connected all the way?

    try looking into your windows updates.

    also try updating your firmware if you can.

    I'm having the same prob and the cables are all the way in... No cuts or damage to the cables....
    So how do i update the firmware when my PC doesnt recognise the burner anymore... Its missing... ARGH!

    a lot of firmware updates are still done through dos, although not all.

    Or has it got to do in that i've just flashed my BIOS?
    so ultimately i'll need to firmware it izzit?
