I got a IDE to SATA converter via Amazon, however when I hooked it all up the computer doesn't recognize the optical drive on windows 7 64bit. The only indication that the computer knows that it can see the optical drive is upon start-up the computer automatically goes straight into the BIOS. The device itself is getting power and so is the optical drive, I can vouch for the power supply and motherboard working correctly because they are new and I have been using them for the past week and this is a fresh install of windows 7 64bit
I have tried to fix the problem by:
going into device manager and checking for any extra drivers.
switching the settings on the drive itself from CS, SL, MA and then removing the jumper all together
looking on Google for an answer
