dvd drive issue?
I got the board today X58 and everything works fine. Except for the dvd drive. I have switched SATA cables, switched DVD drives, switched SATA ports. Nothing works. The drive shows up in the "computer" section of Windows explorer but does not show up on the left side.
Device driver for the dvd drive is installed and it shows up in the device manager.
It just will not read anything at all.
Worst is that I don't think this is a Windows issue.
Even during the post it will not load from the dvd drive. I cannot format and reinstall Windows unless I use an external DVD drive hooked up via USB.
I have tried fiddling with the settings in the BIOS.
Disabling marvell and JMB, renenabling them.
Nothing I can figure out works.
It doesn't make sense though. Everything on the board works except for its ability to read the disc drive? How can this be?
Also, latest BIOS is already installed. As of right now it's the 802 revision.
Is there some kind of specific setting in the BIOS that I have to enable or is my board just shot or is it really some kind of Windows error and I have to format and reinstall?
