Default Dvd drive shows up in bios but not in my computer

A few day days ago I reinstalled windows 7 because I got a new motherboard. My dvd drive has been working fine up until now. It shows up in my bios and in device manager in Windows, but I can't get it to show up in my computer and use the damn thing. I have no idea what could have caused this. It says the device can not start because of an I/0 error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First try going in device manager, right click on it, click uninstall and reboot and let it reinstall the drivers. If its a IDE drive, you dont have two drives on the same cable with the jumpers set wrong?

OK, just tried that, for some reason it's showing up as an scsi disk device in device manager. This can't be right because it's always shown up as a cd-rom device. And yeah, this is the only drive on the IDE cable.

This happened to me after using Daemon tools. Still haven't figured out how to fix it, damn thing is useless. If you have any luck, let me know!

It's in disk management where I try and initialize it and it says it operation cannot be performed because of an I/O error.

Oh yeah, that may be the problem for me as well. I see now that did just install daemon tools lite and I recognized this problem shortly after. No idea how to fix this though.

I have read countless forums and tried so many things. Looks like I'm going to have to reinstall windows again. Yay!

Already tried it 3 or 4 times. Doesn't find the drive even though it's there in device manager and disk management. Thanks though.

In disk management does it show a drive letter?
