I have the following problem, everytime I restart my computer I found my DVD drive disabled. So I have to go to the Device Manager and manually enable it again, after that everything works fine.


I am not aware of any recent changes (I don't think I installed new software in past few weeks). Also I don't use DVD drive much so I am actually not sure how long I have this problem. Only program which comes to my mind is Daemon Tools which I have installed like half a year ago but it could be root of my problem.

My DVD-ROM is MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ8A2ASW and motherboard is ASUSTeK U46SV.

Where could be the problem?

What changed in the environment recently? Windows Update? Any new software (e.g. iTunes)? – user3463 Jul 28 '12 at 5:33
What brand & model is the drive and what brand & model is the motherboard? – Force Flow Jul 28 '12 at 5:56
