Sony Optiarc AD7260S shows in explorer, but does not detect CD/DVD


When you insert the disk, can you hear the motor spinning the disk?
If not- the Nidec drive motor failed. It may still be under warranty or you can try to replace just the motor if that is the case.

If you are hearing it spin, something on the pickup may have failed.

Will it play an audio CD? If so, the DVD pickup failed.

My computer needs a driver for my new sony 24x sata dvdrw and can't find one. The model # is AD7260S0B. Can you Please tell me where to get a driver.


you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark? ! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
if you dont have a disk with the driver you will need to download one

My writer is ot showing in my computer


In any SATA device the data cable becomes hard after being used for some time. Try replacing the data cable with a fresh one and it should solve this problem, provided the power supply to the drive is present (check if the drive tray is operational when the PC is powered on). A bend on the data cable also results in the above symptom. Best replace the data cable.

NI8 SATA DVD Drive compatability


You must have added the SATA drive after setting up the IDE. If both drives are using the same os this will not function. Ony one drive can have the os on it. All SATA's are seen as a master.
To correct this problem, disconnect the IDE drive. Hook up the SATA drive. Again if the SATA has the os on it everything will run. Change the jumper on the IDE and set it as a slave. Hook the IDE up. Enter the bios & do not list the IDE in the boot to section. Problem solved. While in windows, format the IDE drive.
You do not want windows thinking you want a dual boot system.
So you understand, in the bios -boot settings this is how things should be listed.
Boot device 1 Sony Optiarc DVD drive
Boot device 2 WD raptor SATA, In-stall your os to this drive
