Need help with gigabyte driver's and Windows 8!!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hey, I just put together my first build and am having trouble with Windows 8 and the gigabyte drivers. I went to gigabyte's website and downloaded the drivers and put them in a usb and plugged it in to my new build. I extracted the the chipset and clicked on the file. I didn't know which one was the chip set so I decided to use the cd.that it came with but win 8 does not recognize my dvd drive I know it works b/c I installed win 8 with it but don't know why it is not being recognized I checked the sata connections and they are fine please help !!!
I have a gigabyte 970a ud3 mobo and 4170 processors
p.s I haven't activated win 8 yet but I don't think thats the problem

Are you opening from the USB or directly from the hard drive?

Try moving it directly to the desktop.

If you got the drivers directly from the Gigabyte support site, they should work.
