  • This problem arose up through that CD and DWD were on one tire. After a division all became normal.

  • Thanks for the update!

     

    For the CD and DVD drive that were on the same cable, do you know what type of cable the drives were sharing? (SATA, IDE, Etc.)

  • Vladimir,

    If it's still actual, Windows Developer Preview does not show inactive devices. If your DVD/CD-drive does not have a media (i.e. a disc) loaded in it, the device won't show in device manager (neither will it be shown in Windows Explorer), because its device driver is inactive.

    I may be wrong here but it seems like it is controlled by WDF_DEVICE_POWER_POLICY_IDLE_SETTINGS structure.


    Well this is the world we live in And these are the hands we're given...

  • Yes, I try different solutions and see that when I boot bootable disc and start computer my dwd drive is visible in drive list, cd driver exict inthere  but this is all of this .

    When I remove windows bootable disc my Dvd drive disappear from drive listing.

    Sound like fun isn't it ?

     Every other action don't show interactions.

    I look forward for other drivers but I didn't find, i suppose that copying drivers from win 7 not giving any positive result.

    Is it possible using Win 8  developer alone with dvd drive visible and in function ?

    Regards

  • Hello, it's a feature and isn't a driver defect. Your driver detaches from system when it's not needed. Why would you need your device shown when it's not used (i.e. there no media in it)?

  • Hello Hadron !

    The problem is that dvd -rw drive is invisible in drive list and don't work with inserted media in.

    Win developer 8 was from windows official site and looks like have additional dvd-rw  blocking feature after system booting.

    On the other side my wireless stick have absolutely normal behavior and with connection in my computer get normal, visible drive status.

    How I say earlier looks like joke.

    dvd is LG lightscribe tecnology with their own driver inside and working correct.

    Problem is in win 8.

    and erasing one partitition. Now working fine.
