After you install Windows 8, you may find the CD/DVD drive is not recognized.
1. Run Command Prompt as an Administrator. Type cmd in Windows 8 Metro UI and press cltr+shift+enter
2. Type following and say enter
reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001
3. Reboot the system
4. Verify if the problem has been resolved.
that's really worksss..............thankssssss
Also it works for me, thanks :D
Unfortunately it didn't work with a HP dv6809wm laptop. DVD not showing in Device Manager either (but drive opens during POST). Any other recommendations? Thank you.
Thanks man.....it worked for me....
I just wanted to say thank you. I've had this problem a few times installing Win8 on different systems, and this cleared it right up ^_^
I tried that but get the message "ERROR: Access is denied.
I got access denied too. Not sure what is meant by Metro UI
Problem solved :) Thanks a lot!
To Jim & poor1: run Command prompt as Admin (Right click on Command Prompt icon), otherwise you'll get this access denied error.
UI is User Interface.
Just type in Search "Command Prompt", then right click on the icon and then "Run as Admin" nad copy the text mentioned in the beginning, reboot and jabadabaduu :)
thnxxx very much dude it really works
still I am not able to solve problem
DVD drive is not recognized in Windows 8
can I get you tube of the same
Thanks, tried 20 other things - nothing worked till this
Thank you very much. It worked like a charm! Excellent hint, I had no DVD writer available in Winblowz8.
Thank you it worked for me, and it looks like another awful attempt of Windows 8 to avoid including a simple and "cheap" hardware item that I would like it to be able to support, I can't afford all new hardware like everybody else who seems to have ca$h flowing out of their pockets all the time, I would rather put the dollars to GOOD use............
This problem had been driving me nuts. Did what the man said and it solved the problem in 30 seconds. Thank you
had this prob 4 long time....dis worked in seconds..~!!!
