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 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
