Hello!

Since yesterday my Asus G1S does not recognize the dvd/cd drive, this is to say it is not shown at the "computer" (vista ultimate).

i looked up at the device manager and it shows me that the driver could not be load and that they are possibly damaged or simply not available.

the drive is described as "HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20L ATA Device".

i tried almost everything, set the system back to last week, looked up at the bios (but there the drive is listed properly) and so on. has anyone another idea or the right drivers because i couldn't find them on the asus site.

thank you in advance.

Hi! Did you just  perhaps download a new game from DVD. I have had some same kind of problems before, and some strong copy protects like StarForce can make problems like that.

Try uninstalling "HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20L ATA Device" from device manager, then rebooting. After the reboot it should be recognized and the driver reinstalled automatically. If that doesn't help, try uninstalling "IDE CHANNEL" under "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" (the name might be a little different with Vista, im using XP at the moment) and then rebooting.
That might help. If it doesn't try uninstalling any CD/DVD emulation software as well as StarForce and alike protected games.

I have the same problem.  Did uninstalling the IDE channel work?  I'm afraid to fool around with unistalling that.

My new GIS doesn't recognize half of the CDs/DVD's I put in the drive and usually I have to revert to my old vaio whcih always works.

if its on and off for reading, it sounds like you need to replace the disk drive. if it was software based, it would most likely be able to read all, or not even one disk.

Only thing I can think up is checking intel for any support on the firmware for an unknown make.

I had the same problem. Followed the instructions on this Vista support page to edit my registry and DVD drive came right back! http://forums.techarena.in/vista-hardware-devices/776242.htm
