How to fix CD / DVD Drive not showing up in Windows 8

Just installed Windows 8… which is a LOT faster than Windows 7 at pretty much everything- but I’m still not sold on the crazy new UI and there are a few things which seem quite mental. Noticed yesterday that, despite having installed from a DVD, my DVD drives just disappeared! Lucky had blogged how to fix this with a weird registry hack;

They recommend you run this from the admin command prompt;

reg.exe add “HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0″ /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0×00000001

Repeat for additional drives, incrementing the very last number each time. Worked for me. Mental.

I absolutely love these. They came at the lace wigs are good quality, and very soft. Absolutely love these extensions. I just love this hair. Hair came on time, I waited until after hair extensions uk very full, no shedding and it is been installed for 3 weeks now and yes I jus ordered 3 more bundles. Lol. I definitely recommend this company for your bundles ladies. They are soft, hair bundles on the head for human hair wigs and I would continue to recommend them. I have thinner hair so they cover and blend nicely.
