Acer Aspire 5738 laptop not seeing dvd drive
Hoping someone's encountered this issue.
I have an Acer Aspire 5738 laptop which is not seeing the DVD drive.
I did a search on the site to see if there were any hits, but no luck.
Googling "acer not seeing dvd drive" returns lots of hits, but no fixes.
Have swapped out drive for known good one - this results in the drive being seen sometimes in both BIOS and OS.
Original drive works fine in other brand laptop (toshiba) after I removed the custom front panel.
OS is w7 x86 sp1 - clean install (using said "faulty" drive)
Any suggestions please?
