Curently i am without this drive and even multiple reboots or resets of the system didnt help. I checked the drives internalt what I could acces (Because the screws in laptop are impossible to unscrew.. damn company) and nothing seemed wrong, no cables loose. Thanks a lot for help Summary : Internal combo drive Disappears from system Wont load up back even with drivers POWER works in - it opens up and reads the CD/DVD but it Wont appear in the system.
