DVD-ROM disappeared under Windows-7

DVD-ROM disappeared under Windows-7

Windows-7 (build 7100) has forgotten about and refused to recognize that I have an optical drive attached. Linux LiveCD sees it (sees it and it boots from it), so it's isolated to the Windows installation.

"I tried The ""Registory-Upper and Lower filter"" fix, the DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS fix, the Suspendmode From S3->S1 fix, the Intel MAtrix storage (didn't re-install), none worked.

Changing my controller settings in BIOS from IDE to AHCI mode fixed it."

"Windows 7 users, click this link, run the program and it will not only find the missing drive but fix the drivers also. I had numerous drives missing and it found and fixed them all.
