    CD/DVD rom player lost

    I have updated from Windows 7 to Windows 8 and everything went well until I re-booted when I could not access the DVD unit to install other programs. I have gone through this process of reinstalling W8 and each time I can find the DVD but once the PC is re booted the player has vanished.
    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Could be the upper/lower filters problem. See:

    Do you have an IDE or SATA DVD drive?

    I had problems with an IDE DVD drive. I could not boot from a DVD with that drive. I replaced the drive, but the problem persisted.

    However, I then replaced it with a SATA DVD drive, and the problem went away.
