I have a
Gigabyte H510M H motherboard with 4 SATA ports, which all of them either connected to a HDD or SSD drive. I decided to check my discs from 2012 and I realized since I upgraded my PC less than 10 months ago I never connected any DVD/CD drives to it.
So I disconnected one of my hard disc drives and used its cables to connect the DVD-ROM drive. I'm using
Windows 10 and
Pioneer DVR-219L CD/DVD-ROM/Writer.
The problem is the windows recognizes the device as optical drive, even shows its model and version.
also when I double click on it it opens the disc tray, but when I put a disc into device and close it, after 3-4 seconds of its LED blinking the whole device goes silent and nothing happens, even the message of
Insert Disc won't disappear.
I tried these and failed:
- Updated my Windows 10
- Installed latest BIOS firmware
- Tried another cable and SATA port
- Used another DVD-ROM which was IDE (using IDE ↔ SATA converter something like this yet the result is the same)
Both of these devices are working fine on other PC (which have a
MSI-H61 motherboard and is older) and all of my SATA ports and cables are working fine with my HDDs/SSDs.
I want to find out where the problem is and possibly how to fix it, I'll appreciate any kind of help.
The device driver in CD-ROM and ATA/ATAPI category are installed and updated:
