USB 3.0 Bay w/ card reader disables SATA DVD drive?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I've recently installed one of these.
It seems to work fine, but when I look in "My Computer" my D:/ drive is showing as a (USB) removable device, and it will not eject the tray etc. E:/ drive is an almost identical DVD drive which works perfectly.
Unplugging the USB 3.0 cable from the mobo restores the drive.

Mobo is Asrock Z75 Pro3 (details in sig.)
DVD drives are plugged into SATA 2.0 ports 1 & 2 (0 & 1?) I haven't tried moving D:/ to a different port, but I shouldn't have to....

Any ideas?

Cheers.

Try switching the SATA ports so that the DVD drive is in a lower numbered slot than the USB3.0 spot. Alternatively, try assigning the DVD drive the letter D: via the Windows Disk Manager.

Tried changing the SATA port, but no luck. Oddly it's still the same drive that's disabled, despite now being in the third port.

Pic of "My Computer":


D:/ should be the DVD drive, F:/ is Daemon tools, and G:/ to J:/ are empty, presumably the card slots.

SATAs are set to non hot-pluggable and AHCI in BIOS. Not sure what else there is to say/try?

Cheers.

Try forcing Windows to assign the drive letter D: to the DVD drive. If you right click on my computer and then go to manage, there will be a disk management page. Right click on the drive you want to assign the letter to, and there should be the option.

No can do. The drive just isn't showing up at all. Not in Device Manager either.
Any more suggestions?

Cheers.

Is it recognized in bios? Does the drive appear to be powered; when Windows doesn't detect it could you still open it?
