    My motherboard is a Gigabyte K8VT800 Pro.... All the cables are connected, and the SATA control is enabled. This is the only SATA connection, with a hard drive, floppy, and a zip disk drive on IDE. I've tried a whole number of combinations of setting in the bios. Including changing SATA mode from RAID to IDE and GigaRAID Function from RAID to ATA. Everything I try ends up with the same error in windows but it will now recognize the blu-ray rom as IDE master 3 in the bios which it didn't before.

    Thanks for the help

Oilers5, let's check a few basics first. Double check your dvd's data & power connections first. Everything good? Next, you need to get into your bios. Your blu-ray is connected to the SATA controller on the motherboard. Though I do not doupt the device manager your bios must see the device before windows will. At the main menue in your bios the DVD player should be listed (depending on model # of board) at the main menue. Than make sure the SATA controller is enabled, you'll find this in advanced menue. This is where you'll need your manual. If the dvd is the only SATA connected to the system you should have the option to use the SATA & not the RAID. If you have SATA hard drives connected & your dvd ends up on the RAID end you still should have the option to set the RAID to IDE. This way you will not need to run the RAID software. Once you get the bios adjusted windows should see the blu-ray as a SATA dvd player.
Oilers5 if what I have listed has not helped or fixed your problem could you post back with your model no# of the motherboard. Mfg's name ex; (dell, HP...). Than I can download your manual & check what settings need to be adjusted. Is this the only SATA device your trying to get to run? Is your current hard drive a SATA or IDE? How many?
Thanks Oilers5. I look forward to your next post.

Blue Ray not working


One of the advantages of owning an HP Pavilion includes playing your favorite DVDs conveniently at home or anywhere with your HP Pavilion laptop or notebook.
Whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista, your HP Pavilion may experience problems playing your DVDs.
For example, sometimes you may have a DVD movie skip while playing, which can happen frequently with a lot of DVD handling, such as with rental DVDs.
Perhaps your DVD player does not recognize the DVD and rejects it.
When you troubleshoot your HP Pavilion DVD player, you become more acquainted with your HP Pavilion, plus you can get back to movie-watching sooner.
Clean the DVD if you notice any skipping while playing or if the DVD stops.
You can clean the DVD by wiping it from the center to the edge using a lint-free cloth and filtered water.
Avoid watching DVD movies while you have a virus system scan operating on your computer system.
Reschedule the virus scan to another time or disconnect the scan temporarily and then reconnect the scan when you have finished watching your movie.

Disconnect from the Internet while watching movies.
Other programs on your HP computer can access the Internet and disrupt the movie as you watch.
Turn off your printer, scanners and other external devices connected to your HP Pavilion while you watch movies.
This allows your computer to concentrate its resources on your DVD player.
Install the latest DVD player updates from the HP Support and Drivers website for the best DVD performance.
Test the DVD Drive
Insert the DVD into the HP Pavilion DVD drive. Close any window that opens automatically.
Click "Start" and then "Computer."
Right-click on the DVD player icon and then choose "Explore."
Check to make certain you placed the DVD into a DVD drive.
If the HP Pavilion DVD drive ejects the disc or prompts you to insert a disc, it does not recognize the DVD.
You can also try inserting another DVD disc. If you do not see folders appear, such as VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TX, you may have a defective disc, or the DVD may not be compatible with your DVD drive, such as a Blu-ray disc.
Try a different DVD movie.
Insert a regular CD into the DVD drive to see whether HP can read it, after you have tried playing several DVDs.
If the drive can read the CD, it may not be the DVD drive.
Have the internal ribbon cable replaced if the drive cannot read the CD, or have the DVD drive replaced if a new cable does not help.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows 7
Click "Start," "All Programs," "Recovery Manager," and then "Recovery Manager." Click "Continue" if prompted by Windows 7. This will bring up the HP Recovery Manager window.
Click "Software Program Reinstallation" and then "Next."
This will bring up the HP Software Program Reinstallation window, which allows you to reinstall the programs that originally came with your HP Pavilion.
Click "Next" and then follow the instructions provided.
Restart your computer after the driver installation.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows Vista
Click "Start," "All Programs," "PC Help and Tools" and then "Recovery Manager." This will bring up an HP window called Recovery Manager to help you recover HP Pavilion drivers and programs.
Click "Next" and then select "Yes" or "No" when prompted to perform a program recovery.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
HP Pavilion PC Laptop Blue Ray not working
Blu-ray disc technology continues to improve and advance, so simply having a Blu-ray player in your computer doesn't guarantee that all discs will play immediately.
The Hewlett Packard DV7 Entertainment Notebook has a Blu-ray player, but as the technology advances you have to keep the software and firmware on the system up-to-date to ensure compatibility.

Reboot your Pavilion notebook.
A minor miscommunication between the disc drive and Windows Vista or 7 may lead to a disc read error.
Rebooting clears your system's memory and forces Windows to reload all of your device drivers, which may resolve a minor kink.
Play your Blu-ray disc to see if the problem is solved.
Open QuickPlay and update it.
Double-click the "Update" button to open "Updates and Enhancements."
Double-click "Get the latest QuickPlay updates."
Select "Download now!" on the next screen and wait while the file downloads and installs.
Close and reopen QuickPlay and insert the Blu-ray disc again.

Update MediaStart regularly.
This program tracks updates for your Blu-ray player's firmware, the software coded onto the device to tell it what kinds of discs it can read.
Open MediaStart and select "Update your MediaStart." Updates are only listed when available, so if you don't see an update, check back in a few weeks.
Each update for the Blu-ray player enables you to play more recent discs, since some interactive features may not be compatible with older software.
Restart after each update.

Update your software on a disc-by-disc basis.
According to HP, some Blu-ray discs have special content protection and require new codes for you to play the movie.
These codes or disc-specific updates are stored on the disc.
If you are prompted to download a free update after inserting a disc, follow the prompts to do so. The updates will be different for each disc.

Check to make sure your player will play regular content if you continue to have issues with Blu-ray discs. It may be that the error is related to the drive, not the type of media.
Try a CD-ROM or a standard DVD to see if the disc responds.
If not, contact HP for a replacement or for drive-related troubleshooting.

I pulled a jumper off sli motherboard my cd rom is not reading disks alienware alx


Assuming you can eject disks, and the drive is appearing in my computer / windows explorer, check the SATA (usually red) cable connected between your drive and motherboard, If it is correctly connected try using another SATA port on your motherboard, if that doesnt work you can try going into the bios (usually by pressing delete as it is booting) then checking to see if the drive is being detected, you should see it in SATA devices, and also in your boot menu. If it isnt there its a hardware problem.. replace cables, try using the SATA port from one of your Hard drives.

If the drive is in showed in bios, and
is not appearing in my computer / windows explorer, go into control panel, system, hardware, device manager (if using XP, other versions of windows also have device manager) if there is a yellow question mark next to the dc/dvd drive, run the installation cd for your drive, or right click, update driver, run through the wizard selecting the location where you saved the drivers.

If it is installed correctly, and you have tried numerous disks, making sure they are not dvd's if its a cd drive, the you can try downloading the bios file from the manafacturers website and updating following their instructions

While this post is from December 2010, I'm going to respond anyway.

There are so many variables to this equation, it's difficult to tell if you had installed them correctly. First, check all connections, make sure they are secure. Secondly, try switching spots, if drive B works where drive A worked, and drive A doesn't work, then it's hardware. Otherwise, if the new drive is recieving power, then try getting a hold of the drivers for it, and make sure it's compatible with your OS.

SATA / Optical Drive Not Recognized


In my travels through this nightmare called Windows, there have been some real issues. I ran into this same problem with XP with SP3, What I did was set up a virtual machine running Vista Premium and loaded the SATA Optical with the Vista OS which recognized it right off. I was able to use the drive just fine when using the Vista in the virtual machine but was not seen in XP. Have not found a decent work around this....just waiting for Windows 7 to come out so I dump both XP and Vista and start over learning another new curb, but at least I've been told that a huge amount of drivers are to be loaded into the new OS...we'll see.

SATA Hard drive caddy not acknowledged


Yes, what it seems to me is that you have alot of devices connected and windows by default trie to give the same device the same letter every time you connect it. Well if something else takes its place and you try and connect it, it tried to give it that letter but cant and kind of sits in limbo in the device manager.

Try the following.

Right click " My Computer" and select " MANAGE"

Then when that opens, select the " Disk management" on the left side of the sectioned window.

On the right it should populate your drives including the one that you said isnt showing.

See what letter it is assigned. You can change the drive letter by selecting the drive on the right side, right click and change drive letter to somehting that you know isnt being used like " Z " .

Confirme, or O.K. it and then if all goes well, it should auto detect and it should show under my computer.

This often happens with windows when there is alot of similar devices connected. Windows can only handle up to 32 devices being connected at one time and soem times it holds onto a drive letter for another device and cant give it out to another. often devices such as External hard drives will also try to reclaim the same drive letter and will fight over it. Windows bassically just ignores it since it already gave out the letter to another device and you have to specify it another one.

Let me know if this works or if you need more help.

Is the 2400 Toast ???


Two main reasons why this things happen, first.. there's an error with your hardware. If you know how to diasassemble your pc, then do it. Cleaning your machine will make it work. If it doesn't, repair the operating system with your windows installer cd. Be sure to clean your cd rom or you might as well borrow or buy a new cd rom so that the installation will run smoothly
